School Budgets - Spend Before Year End


Feb 26 2015
School Budgets

For most schools it is the time of year to review school budgets and either ‘use it or lose it’. Your school might have some budget left over which you need to spend before the end of March 2015.

At Early Learning Furniture we want you to spend your budget wisely. We don’t want you to waste it just because you have to. Spend it wisely and invest in improvements for your school and your pupils.

Spring is here and traditionally it is time for a good spring clean and to freshen things up. Think about how you can refresh your school this spring – perhaps your outdoor furniture is looking a little tired from winter? Some new equipment for your outside space could be ideal.

Or maybe your school walls and corridors are looking a little unloved, you can liven up classrooms and corridor walls with new noticeboards or whiteboards.

We have some suggestions for you if you are in a position to have some left over budget this year:

Up to £100

Refresh classroom group work with a class pack of Show N Tell Lapboards from our classroom whiteboard range. Children love using these small, flexible whiteboards which can be used again and again. They are ideal for group interaction or one to ones.

This class pack contains all you need for a class of 30 children including A4 lapboards, pens and erasers.

Classroom Whiteboard Pack

Up to £250

Imaginations will run wild with our school play furniture range. Young children learn so much through play – they learn to explore, be creative and use their imaginations.  The Play Bus or any of our play furniture is a welcome addition to any learning environment and will help with the key stages of development for early year’s education.

School Play Bus

Up to £500

Extend your outside play space with some new outdoor furniture. Our weather resistant, maintenance-free tables and benches are perfect for any playground or outside study area. With the weather improving as we get into Spring, you can encourage your pupils to spend more time outside with some new furniture to use.

Why not revive your classrooms with some new tables and chairs. With our classroom tables starting at just £38 and classroom chairs starting at £11 you can easily modernise a whole classroom for under £1000.

Alternatively you can improve your classroom storage with some new classroom trays. We offer a wide variety of classroom storage at great value prices. Storage doesn’t have to be boring with our colourful fun classroom storage systems.

Consider overhauling your school library furniture with some new library shelving.
