Schools reap the benefits from SELCHP 2014 - 14/05/2014

 
Deptford Park Primary School received £4,000 for a start-up scheme which will 
 
provide a Breakfast Club for infant children. This enables parents to drop off their 
 
children early and to work, as well as ensuring children from deprived families get a 
 
full breakfast and are on time for classes.
 
Ken Johnson, Head of Deptford Park Primary School, said: "We are delighted to 
 
receive this funding which means this important scheme can be set up, launched and 
 
run at an affordable cost, as well as being fully subsidised for the most economically 
 
disadvantaged families."
 
Sir Francis Drake Primary School, also in Deptford, applied for the funding of new 
 
overhead projectors to replace the existing projectors which beam light directly into 
 
the faces of teachers and pupils, posing a significant health and safety risk. The 
 
grant of £3,850 will enable five new projectors to be purchased.
 
Sam Earl, ICT Co-ordinator at Sir Francis Drake Primary School, said: "We are 
 
extremely thankful to SELCHP for their kind donation which will enable us to replace 
 
the hazardous old projectors with modern, safe equipment that will protect the 
 
eyesight of our pupils and staff."

Moatbridge School in Eltham is a small special needs school for boys with serious 
 
emotional and behavioural difficulties. They have been awarded £4,000 to fund the 
 
Arts Award in Music course, which will give these disadvantaged children a sense of 
 
worth and help them achieve GCSE qualification. 
 
Hana Vencovska, Music Teacher at Moatbridge School, said: "Arts and music acts 
 
as a therapy to these children and allows them to express themselves. This grant 
 
will provide us with much-needed funding for the Arts Award in Music course as 
 
well as buying or replacing essential musical instruments, without which it would be 
 
impossible to teach the children."

worthy schemes."
