The Queen Anne Royal Free CE First School is a one form entry First School in Windsor, offering education to 4-9 year olds, which opened in 1988. We believe everyone is a learner and we would like to allow children to be given equal opportunities to achieve the best they can and enjoy learning. We know children learn in different ways and it is our role to provide a number of resources to allow children to learn.
Here at the Queen Anne we are proud of all the activities and facilities we provide for our children. However due to public sector cuts it is becoming more of a challenge to ensure there is money for the extras that the children enjoy so much. We are very lucky that parents and the community support us through the amazing work of our activity PTA, QAPAFA, but we are turning to local businesses to develop a working relationship to hopefully provide mutual benefit.
A lot of companies are required to allow Corporate Social Responsibility Days, which means a working party from the organisation gets paid to volunteer at a local good cause. We are fortunate that we have benefited from this over the past few years, with Gallagher, Centrica, SSE, KP Snacks, Barclays bank and Ribbon Communication coming in for the day to paint, garden and build growing beds and sheds. This support is always welcome as we have fairly extensive grounds. therefore always have projects ready for willing volunteers.
However there are other opportunities which are available to businesses. We are looking at sponsorship and support in exchange for marketing opportunities. We are fortunate enough to be supported by Hamilton Chess Estate Agency, supporting QAPAFA, our PTA, and The Christmas Decorators, who provide the school with a Christmas tree each year.
If you wish to discuss these opportunities please contact the Business Manager, Claire McDougall
