Empowering People, Launching lives

Staff appreciation

The festive season is fast approaching, and plans are well underway here at BeyondAutism. The students are busy rehearsing for the Winter Production, and planning for school celebrations is in full swing.

For the past few years, we have given parents the option to make a donation towards a staff appreciation fund, in lieu of individual staff gifts at Christmas. We now have over 130 teaching staff across the organisation, which can make collective efforts to thank them at year-end and Christmas expensive and also time-consuming. We’ve had very positive feedback from parents over past years, and a very generous response.

This year, any contributions to the staff appreciation fund will be designated to the Staff Committee (a Staff-led body with representatives from across the organisation) to spend on wellbeing initiatives throughout the year; examples might include organising social events, access to a mindfulness app, regular fresh fruit deliveries or treats for staff.

Please note that making a contribution is entirely optional – our Tutors and Teachers are truly grateful for all the thanks and support you give them throughout the year, and no further donations or gifts are expected.

If you would like to make a donation towards the staff appreciation fund, contributions of any amount would be very gratefully received!

All donations will be processed by the fundraising department and treated as strictly anonymous – no details will be disclosed to staff or parents, other than the total amount raised.

Thank you for all of your support.
