Creating Futures Fund

Creating Futures!

Raising money for the wellbeing of our children.

 

What is our Creating Futures fund?

Creating Futures is our school fundraising platform. It enables money raised during school fundraising and enrichment events to go directly back to the children and community of Greet. Monies raised will be used to invest in resources as well as to create meaningful, long-lasting experiences for our children. Equipping them with the best start - to create an exciting future.

 

The fund will be visible to parents, staff and children so that we are united in building a GREAT Greet community, improving the physical and mental wellbeing of our children. Keep an eye out in the entrance hall for our Creating Futures fundraising thermometer!

 

Why have the Creating Futures Fund?

We feel that charity starts at home and the money raised through our school fundraising will support us to create inspiring, safe outdoor learning opportunities.

 

We are very fortunate to have a large school site with extensive outdoor areas ready for developing into wonderful spaces for our children and community. We recognise that living in Inner-city Birmingham many children are not able to experience the benefits that spending time outdoors in greenspaces can have on our physical and mental wellbeing.

 

Why is physical and mental wellbeing vital for our children?

There has been an explosion of interest in research, media and education around improving the  physical and mental wellbeing in children, and how the two are connected. We strongly believe that there are significant benefits for children and adults in spending quality time outdoors. Research has shown that the more time children spend outdoors learning and playing the better they feel physically and emotionally and the more equipped they are to deal with challenges they may face.

 

We want all of out children to know that ‘there are no limits to what they can achieve’, nurturing their skills to grow into resilient, confident young people.

 

What do we have in mind for the fund?

We want to raise a total of £20,000.00 by July 2024!

 

As we reach certain target points we will spend the money on identified projects.

The overall aim of the projects are to:

  • Develop safe outside spaces for children to learn and play.
  • Build strong links with the local community.
  • To become an Eco-School through achievement of their Green Flag accreditation.
  • To achieve our RHS School Gardening Award - Level 1 to 5.

 

All children will have the opportunity to contribute to the projects through their School Council class representatives.

 

Who can get involved?

Fundraising will be facilitated by staff at Greet through whole school fundraising events. These will range from free dress days to the summer fair. Staff at Greet will work together with parents and the local community to collectively fundraise with all donations going towards the fund.

 

We have a growing army of fantastic parent volunteers who support us in raising money for Creating Futures! If you would like to get involved please contact Ms Yasmin or Miss Williams via the school office.

 

Please work with us to make a difference to the children of Greet.
