Add your Child’s Photo to the Upton Swimming Pool Gallery
With just 4% of state primary schools in England now having their own pool and 10% of school pools closing every year, our staff and PTFA team work very hard to ensure that we provide the opportunity for our children to swim, because we think it’s important. We consistently fundraise in order to pay for the upkeep and repairs to the Upton Swimming Pool. As part of our fundraising, once a year we offer parents the opportunity to purchase a porcelain wall tile that will be installed on the wall overlooking the pool. The tile can feature any suitable picture of your choice - popular images are family photos, individual pupils and memories of fun events. The list is endless and this opportunity is open to all parents.
Below is an example of a tile, you will see that the print quality is excellent. It’s a very simple process – first, log on to School Money to pay, and select the ‘School Shop’ option on the left hand side. You will see the tiles listed as one of the items available to buy. Next, fill out the attached form and return it to the School Office, then email the School Office with the image that you would like on firstname.lastname@example.org. Please ensure you use the naming convention outlined on the order form, for your email and the photo file itself. You need to ensure that the image has a minimum resolution of 300 pixels per inch (the vast majority of digital cameras or phones have this as standards) and is roughly a square (the same shape as a tile).
The tiles cost £14 each and the deadline for any orders is Monday 19th March so we can get them installed in good time. An order form is attached.
You may have heard that previously, some of the tiles came loose from the wall – please rest assured that all of the affected tiles have been replaced and are now proudly featured in our Swimming Pool Gallery!
