Latest Information Update : 

We are half way to achieving our goal but only have another 2 days to achieve our goal of buying two ipads.  We would really like to have an ipad in each classroom to benefit each class.  We already have two in school (bought with funds raised by selling the tea towels).  We have also been really fortunate to receive a hugely generous donation of two ipads from parents of a child in our school.  If you are able to support the rocket fund, please do so.  Thank you


Dear Parents,

This year Silkstone Primary are involved in a new initiative called Rocket Fund. Rocket Fund is a crowdfunding platform for schools to fundraise for the latest technology.

I wanted to make you aware that we are raising money for 2 iPads for our children through this platform. The iPads are so important because they’ll  help develop our children’s learning even further. 

Funding new technology in schools has always been a challenge. So we’ve created a project on Rocket Fund to see if we can raise money from our community.

To see our project please go here:

Every little helps, but don’t worry if you can’t donate right now – we would be grateful if you could share this project with as many people as possible: on Twitter, Facebook, email or just over the fence!

We are also keen for local businesses to support us so if you have any contacts who may be interested in supporting this project, please get in touch here:

Many thanks,

Mrs Dolan
