Yateley Educational Trust
Yateley Educational Trust improves the school experience for students by providing those extra resources
What is YET?

- Software for student access to the wireless network
- Reader pens for Learning Support

Where does YET get its money from?
Generous parents make a monthly donation by standing order. And if you pay UK tax you can gift aid your donation so that donations are then increased by the Government through the Gift Aid scheme. For example, a £10 donation becomes £12 for the school.
Who decides how the money is spent?
The Trust comprises parents, staff, the headteacher and ex-governors of the school. The board meets regularly to approve requests for funding from school departments and management for a particular project. The more parents paying a monthly direct debit the more requests can be met!
Can my child make suggestions for YET funding?
If a student has a good idea, ask them to report it to the School Council. Some project ideas in the past have come from the School Council.
