Other ways to support us

I’m sure with the November lockdown we will be shopping online much more than usual in the lead up to Christmas, so do register with Smile.Amazon and Easyfundraising – the PTA will then get income at no cost to you – what’s not to love?!

Finally, many thanks to everyone who already makes a monthly donation to support the PTA. At a time when we cannot run our normal fundraising events, this income is even more important. If you haven’t yet signed up and would like to do so please see the standing order and gift aid form at the foot of the page. Please do remember to tick the Gift Aid box if you are a tax payer, as this generates even more money for us at no cost to yourself!

Please send completed forms to the school office (marked for the PTA) or scan the form and email back to us at


Best wishes
The PTA Committee
