Here are some of the ways in which the schools we work with fund their Doodle subscriptions. We hope this is helpful!
Many schools find that parents are very happy to contribute to the cost of a school Doodle subscription, so this can fund (or part-fund) the children’s access. As parents pay £119.99 for an annual home subscription for one child, while school subscriptions come to just £6+VAT/year, pooling together to fund a school subscription represents a significant saving for parents.
Lots of the schools we work with explore creative and innovative ways to fundraise for their subscription to Doodle - from cake sales, to car boot sales! Often driven by PTAs, these fundraising events work really well to fund a Doodle subscription, whilst having fun at the same time!
Although our standard payment terms are 14 days, we understand that your budget may be allocated at a certain time of year, and therefore this may cause some difficulties. Flexible payment terms and split payment terms can be discussed to support schools with this.
Pupil Premium Funding
As the Doodle programmes adapt to the level of each child, even finding and filling learning gaps outside of the child’s school year, they are ideal for children in need of an extra boost
Budget for whole-school improvement
If your school has prioritised maths or English as part of their whole-school improvement plan, it is likely that your school will have budget allocations associated with this. Doodle is designed to raise both attainment and confidence in maths and English and therefore is a valuable tool if maths or English are a focus of your whole-school improvement plan. You can monitor whole-school progress and export data to ensure that this outgoing of your whole-school improvement budget is paying off.
Are you looking for a subject resource that won't go out of date, is suitable across the Key Stages, can be used in and out of school, and doesn't get lost? Doodle ticks all of these boxes and is a great allocation of subject-specific budget to support all year groups.
Recovery premium funding
In February 2021, the government announced a one-off recovery premium as part of its package of funding to support education recovery. The recovery premium provides additional funding for state-funded schools in the 2021 to 2022 academic year. Building on the pupil premium, this funding will help schools to deliver evidence-based approaches for supporting disadvantaged pupils. For more information on eligibility please see here. As Doodle creates individual work programmes designed to close learning gaps and raise both attainment and confidence in maths and English, it fits the bill for use of this funding.
Donations from individuals
Donations to schools often come from former students or businesses. Putting donations towards software such as Doodle helps ensure that all children can benefit and this money donated can have a powerful impact on children's learning.
