Our Fundraising Group is an important part of Ethelbert Road Primary School and the community. They help to raise essential funds and organise and run events for all of the children in our school. School events such as, Film Nights, Christmas and Summer Fayres, The Children's Christmas Shop, Dinner and Dance, workshops and whole school visitors would not be possible without the support of our Fundraising Group members.
We are determined to raise £20,000 over the next two years for our playground project. We are aiming to resurface the playground and Reception area and have new markings laid. Over the next two years you will be receiving a separate Fundraising Letter every term, informing you of the progress we are making. Here are some of the ways we aim to raise the funds:
- ERPS Go Fund Me Page
- Easyfundraising App (see separate letter)
- Children’s Film Nights
- Christmas, Easter and Summer Fairs
- Christmas events
- Adults Dinner and Dance
- Sponsored events
- Spare Change Challenge
- Cake Sale
- Adult Race Night
- Adult Quiz Night
If you have any ideas on how we can raise money, or know any company that may be able to help us, please do not hesitate to email the office or to speak to Miss Hills. Thank you to everyone who has made donations and given up their time to support our wonderful events in 2019/2020.
Here you will find all our Fundraising Newsletters and updates.
Fundraising is a vital part of building up our resources in school. These are essential tools for the classroom and playground and encourage the children to play, engage and learn to take turns. As we are limited to what we can do for fundraising we have decided to create wish lists on Amazon. Parents can view the items we would like as a school and then purchase them for us. Amazon will then automatically send the items directly to the school. The links below are for our latest two lists. One is for playground resources and the other is for classroom resources:
We also have a list for Books for the classrooms, which relate to the topics the children will study:
We have been overwhelmed with the generosity of our parents/carers and the children with all the books, resources and games we have received. Thank you to everyone that has donated. Please only donate if you are able to.

Christmas Shopping Evening
Ethelbert Road Primary school held their Christmas Shopping Evening on Wednesday 21.11.2019 and it was a huge success. We would like to thank Laura Port for organising this amazing event and giving up her time to support the school's fundraising. We would also like to thank the stall holders, visitors, staff and parents for supporting this event.
Donation of laptops and monitors
We would like to say a big thank you to RHL Recruitment, a technical recruitment consultancy in Ashford, for the donation of laptops and monitors. These laptops and monitors will be used to support our children's learning and replace some very old and broken ones we have.
