The normal pupil enrichment stuff? Would money be given for a new roof for example assuming it wasn't forthcoming from the la?

Local authority rather than la!

We don't raise funds for that sort of thing. That should come out of school budgets, I believe.

How bad is the roof?

Not really, but we would put pressure on the L.A. if improvements were needed to the fabric of the building.

We fundraised for new tarmac for the playground.

It was involved when the school had to raise 10% of a big building project. Its a faith school so they have to pay a percentage.

Like Mummytimes school, CofE and governors have to find a % of capital building work.

The only thing we get involved with with regards to the fabric of the building is get a work party together to paint certain areas (like the reception class outside play area) which we as a PTFA wanted to do in primary colours to brighten it up. we also have painted a courtyard area for the older kids with a mural. We have, however, paid for an adventure playground, and are at present raising funds for an "outside classroom".

We're paid for an outside classroom, lots of play equipment, hand driers, laptops and cameras recently. So not infrastructure per se, but some stuff you could argue the LEA should fund. But I would rather it continued funding our teachers!
