1 September 2011 Dear Parent/Guardian, Year 7 Design and Technology As you may know, our policy is now to ask parents to make a voluntary contribution for your child’s technology projects. This money is essential in order to help purchase the materials that are used and is more necessary than ever in the current financial climate. This year we are offering you the opportunity to pay all contributions at the beginning of the year. This allows the projects to be well planned and means that less administrative time is spent collecting money. For this academic year we are asking for a single contribution of £10. This will go towards the costs of all the materials your child will use in year 7. Due to the rise of allergies and food intolerances, we will still ask you to provide ingredients for Food Technology lessons - the health and safety of students is paramount and we request that you inform the school of any such allergies or intolerances so we can plan accordingly. We will also have to continue to ask for additional voluntary contributions where students have chosen to make larger or more expensive pieces of work. In some cases, it may not be possible for students to undertake such projects without a direct contribution from parents. We appreciate that September is an expensive time and that there are many requests for your money! However, we really believe that your child will benefit enormously from having the materials to make quality products to bring home. We are extremely grateful for the support we have received from parents in previous years and look forward to this continuing. We have not raised the contribution amount for the last 3 years, despite the cost of materials increasing as we appreciate how difficult September can be on your finances. Please do not hesitate to contact me on 01296 424472 Ext 411 if you have any concerns or questions regarding this letter. Kind Regards,
