Upcoming events

We are looking at ways to continue our fundraising during this school year and we will update this page soon with details of upcoming events.

Throughout the year

 There are lots of different ways you can support the PTA through the year.

  • Come along to our AGM and Committee meetings; perhaps join the Committee itself and get involved in contributing to ideas.
  • Become a class representative and help fellow parents stay connected, support your child’s teacher by sharing information and help with gift collections for teachers and teaching assistants at key times of the year.
  • Recycle school uniform.
  • Help with a specific event – be it through planning, making tea and coffee at Saints days celebrations or giving us an hour to run a stall at a fair, when we can next run one.
  • Share your skills – cake bakers, face painters, publishers, advertisers, printers, photographers, First Aiders – whatever your calling, we need your talents!
  • There are always jobs that can be done from home and in small pockets of time, such as folding raffle tickets or wrapping gifts for the Summer and Christmas Fairs.

Through your work

matchinglogossmall

The logos above show some of the companies and organisations which we believe have cash matching schemes, some of which have already cash matched and given to our PTA.

There are several benefits to both ourselves and the company involved: 

  • employees' morale is boosted by having their efforts supported by their employer;
  • the company benefits from having charitable donations written off against taxable profits;
  • the company can get positive publicity for their giving;
  • our PTA benefits from receiving perhaps double what we have raised at an event.

Last year, we raised £2,800 just through cash matching, so it’s an invaluable contribution to our fundraising for the school. If you think that your employer has a cash matching scheme already in operation, or if you would like some more information about cash matching or setting up a scheme in your workplace, please talk to a member of the PTA, ask in the school office or email us at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Your areas of expertise also play a key part in what we do. You might be surprised at the range of skills that are needed at the forefront and in the background of organised events. Have a chat with us or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you’d like to volunteer your time and talents.
