A voluntary aided school
A voluntary aided school (VA school) is a state-funded school in England and Wales in which a foundation or trust (usually a religious organisation), contributes to building costs and has a substantial influence in the running of the school.
VA schools are paid on a similar basis to other categories of school, but the governing body must usually pay at least 10% of the costs of capital work. Responsibility for work to VA school premises is shared between the school's governing body and the local authority (LA)
We regularly support projects and charities to support children to understand that the world can be changed, to improve outcomes for all and fulfil our Christian values. The children often suggest their own ideas to support their passions and interests e.g. support for disaster zones around the world, Harvest, Water Aid, Sports Relief, Comic Relief and Christian Aid.
