How Can You Help?
Our Team Of Parent & Teacher Volunteers Are Dedicated To Raising Funds For The School All Year Round. We Have Come Up With Consistent & Innovative Ways to Raise Funds & Are Always Open To New Ideas To Ensure Our Children Have The Best Equipment & Tools To Assist With Their Future.
We are grateful for your support at our events, but we also need volunteers! We welcome whatever time
you can contribute – it can be as little as a few hours every term to assist at one of our Cake Bake or Second
Hand Uniform sales, or if you fancy getting more involved you can volunteer to join our Committee, attend
meetings and be part of our decision making body.
Need personalised name stamps? Looking for fabric pens? Kids labels or stamps? a great place to shop but also help fundraise for free!
Every time an order is placed for a Name Labels Deluxe Bundle with your PTA code - SE218HP, the customer receives a FREE white fabric pen (worth £4.99) and your PTA receives 15% commission on the whole order (less VAT). It's that simple and easy! Imagine how much we can raise for our children...
Stamptastic.co.uk are thrilled to support PTAs and in 2019 PTAs raised just under £9,000 commission with them.
Add this to the 470 fundraising vouchers worth over £10,000.
In total they gave a HUGE £19,000 to PTAs (in just one year....)
50 PTAs raised over £50 in commission and were all entered into a draw to win £500 Stamptastic Vouchers!
