Loyalty pays off in windfall for school

MORE than £500 has been given to a Bognor Regis school for its loyalty.

 

Southway Primary School received the windfall from YPO – the UK’s largest publically owned buying organisation.

 

It is sharing its profits with its thousands of school customers and Southway’s portion has added to up £505.

 

Head of school Sarah Holland said: “Donations of this are always incredibly welcome and help us to invest further in resources to aid and enrich our pupils’ wider school experience.”

 

The school in South Way plans to use its loyalty vouchers to purchase more educational resources.

 

The loyalty scheme sees a share of YPO’s profits throughout 2015/16 given back to its public sector customers based on how much they spend with the group each year.

 

Simon Hill, YPO’s managing director, said: “With budgets at a breaking point, schools are facing the persistent challenge of balancing providing an exceptional education with the pressures of keeping costs low.

 

“We’re delighted to play a part in helping schools that regularly buy equipment and resources from us by offering them a share of our profits through our longstanding loyalty scheme.”

 

Since its start in 2011, the loyalty scheme has given back almost £110m to YPO customers in the public sector.
