PTA

 

What does the PTA do?

 

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.

 

Englefield CE School PTA is a charity (Reg no 286442) that has been set up to raise vital funds to support Englefield School. Although Englefield is a State Funded school, Local Authority funds cover only the very minimum.

 

With your support, we can enhance the great work our school does in educating and caring for our children by purchasing new technology and equipment and funding fantastic extra trips and activities.

 

 

What has the PTA helped fund?                         

  • IT equipment & Smartboards
  • Updating outdoor areas
  • Workshops
  • Music resources
  • Sports kit
  • Library books
  • Outdoor learning resources                                                                                                                 

 

Some of the ways we raise money:  

  • Summer and Christmas Fetes      
  • Silent Auctions
  • Quiz Nights
  • Movie Nights
  • Raffles        
  • Cake Sales                                                                       

 

 

 

 

Who's who in the PTA?

I don’t have much time to spare, how else can I help support the school?

 

Pledged Giving Scheme - The most beneficial way to support the PTA financially is to join our Pledged Giving Scheme and set up a monthly standing order donation. Please contact the school office for more information.

 

Give as you Live - this is an online fundraising platform allowing users to shop at over 4,200 stores and raise free funds for charify.  The store pays Give as you Live a percentage of your total purchase price in commission and of this, 50% is passed on to your chosen charity. Go to https://www.giveasyoulive.com/ to sign up.

 

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 work 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.

 

Every little helps. We are very grateful for any donations of time or money to help fundraise for our school. Thank You!
