St Martin’s Pre-Primary School is registered as a public benefit or non-profit organisation not for gain. It is an independent, private school and is funded entirely by parents through the payment of school fees.
In the third term of each year, the school budget for the following year is determined, according to the curriculum needs of the school, the strategic plan and the consumer price index (CPI). School fees for the following year are set at this time and parents are notified in accordance with the School’s Constitution.
School fees cover the operational costs of the School in providing a quality educational programme, including, but not limited to, the maintenance of facilities and resources, payment of staff, payment of overheads and the purchasing of equipment.
The purchase of extra equipment, improvements to décor and additional special projects, that are undertaken to enhance the school, are funded through fundraising conducted by the Parents’ Association Committee.
