PTA

Welcome to the PTA page!

 

Welcome to Englefield C E Primary PTA. We're a team of parents, friends and staff from across the school community, working together to raise money and support projects being undertaken by the school. 

 

The Englefield PTA is a charity that has been set up to raise vital funds to support Englefield School. Although Englefield is a State funded school, only the bare minimum of costs are funded by the Local Authority, leaving a shortfall for vital areas of expenditure such as Information Technology. The PTA also has a great role to play in supporting Workshops and social events organised for pupils, parents and staff at the school. From school Discos and subsidies for school trips, to quiz nights and community events, we hope to get as many families and friends involved in the activities and events run by the PTA.

 

We very much appreciate the wide stretch of support that we receive across the school, throughout the academic year, together our community achieves. Thank you!

 

Please feel free to get in touch with any comments or suggestions.

 

With best wishes,

 

PTA Team

Financial Alternatives to Support the School

 

There are some fantastic opportunities to support the school and the fund-raising efforts of the PTA by taking a few simple steps:
 

  • Register with The Giving Machine - By simply registering your details at www.thegivingmachine.co.uk, thousands of High Street Retailers can donate money to the school every time you shop. It's very quick and simple to do - please encourage your friends and family to choose "Englefield CE Primary" as their chosen charity so we can maximise the amount of money raised.
  • Sign a Gift Aid form – this means that HMRC will give the PTA an extra 25p for every £1 donated to the charity if you are a UK tax payer. (We will be sending forms to families that we do not already hold a form for on file.)
  • Apply for matched sponsorship – Many employers offer to match money raised by their employees, therefore doubling the amount going to charity so please take advantage of this where you can.
  • Corporate Donations / Sponsorship – Many businesses commit to supporting local charities as part of their corporate responsibility policies.  If you / your employer / a contact of yours works at a business that would be keen to support the school either through making donations (which could be cash donations or equipment such as laptops) or through sponsoring one of our events then we would be delighted to speak to them.  

 

Coming from busy jobs in the corporate world we are also conscious that some families may find it easier to contribute financially towards the PTA on occasions where it is challenging to commit to time away from work. As such, making a direct donation to the PTA or to the School's Covenant Fund may act as a useful way to support the school. Ad hoc donations can be made throughout the year or a Standing Order can be set up to make more regular donations.
