This project received pledges on Mon 25 Mar 2019
Fund 2 large TV screens in our hall so that all children at either end of the hall can see clearly

UPDATE! Thanks to all your support we've already reached our target so we have added a stretch target to be able to afford both screens. See details below. 

Pledge now! Help us to get £250 in match funding from Rocket Fund, by being one of the first groups to raise £250.

Stanford Junior School KEY STATS

Number of students that will benefit: 324

Age of students: 7-11

Percentage eligible for free school meals: 3.8%


Over the last few years Stanford Junior School PTFA have helped provide 12 interactive TV screens for individual classrooms, but now the school is in need of new technology for the main hall.

The long, thin hall layout means that during assemblies and presentations, not all children can see the screen properly. The addition of two TV screens mounted on the walls would mean that the children at each edge of the hall could look forward rather than sitting sideways and struggling to see.

"Sometimes I can't see the screen in assembly and I get bored, so I just play with my fingers..." - Solomon, 3LC

Wall-mounted TV screens

We want to install two 75" TV screens on the walls at either end of the hall, which will mirror the content of the projector screen in the centre of the hall. The screens will be used by the whole school during assemblies, for classes and for events such as school shows. The screens are also used for PTFA events such as Film Night - these additional screens will enhance the experience for everyone.

"Because I'm a Year 5 we sit near to the back, but there are some really tall kids in front of me who are in the way, which is really annoying" - Austin, 5JKR


The PTFA want to raise enough money to buy and install one screen. If we can raise enough funds, the school have agreed to buy and install the second screen.

  • 1 x LG 75UK6200PLB 75" Smart 4K Ultra HD HDR LED TV  @ £1,099
  • 1 x Wall mount @ £45
  • 1 x Additional wiring and fitting @ £356

Total = £1,500 inc VAT, Delivery and Fitting


Now that we've raised enough to buy and fit 1 screen (thanks again to all our supporters!), the school has agreed to pay for the other. However, we'd love to be able to raise all the money needed for both screens (and let the school spend their money on something else to benefit the kids), so we're going for the full £3,000.
