Friends of SMRT
All those with parental responsibility of current students at the school are members of the 'Friends of SMRT'. The Friends of SMRT Committee meets monthly and is elected at the Annual General Meeting in Term 2. Parents/carers are able to stand for election to this body. The 'Friends of SMRT' contributes to school life in many ways, including being a major consultative group and for the raising of funds for school use through the 'School Support Fund' (a donation form is provided in the next section). We urge you to subscribe from the start of your connection with school, and to support the various social and fund-raising events held throughout the year. The monies raised are split between supporting the school's building programme (the Governors have to pay 10% of all building costs in a church school) and supporting the Enabling Fund. This Fund assists with both individual and more general educational needs which arise from time to time. If you would like to know more please contact the Friends of SMRT.
School Support Fund
We encourage as many parents/carers as possible to donate to this fund, as this is the 'Friends' main way of supporting the school financially. Please download and complete the Donation Form, and send it to: School Support Fund, St Mary Redcliffe and Temple School, Somerset Square, Bristol, BS1 6RT. If you are a taxpayer please tick the 'Gift Aid' box on the form so that we can also claim an extra 25% tax back from the government making every £1.00 you donate worth £1.25.
