PTA


Every year Swavesey Primary School Parent Teacher Association (PTA) try and raise in excess of £8,000 to support the school by organising numerous events including; The Great Swavesey Bake Off, Fireworks Extravaganza, Summer Fete, Christmas Carol concert, Bingo, Film nights, Discos, Cake sales and Christmas shopping evenings... to name but a few.

In this very challenging year, due to COVID and our desire to keep our children and our community safe, we have had to cancel all our usual events for the foreseeable future which means we are having to rethink how we raise much needed funds for the school.

Despite the obvious restrictions and not being able to run our normal events (fireworks, discos, cake stalls, Christmas events) with your help we still managed to raise an amazing   

£2664.68 raised in the Autumn Term

We need your help to continue raising vital funds.

MAKE A DONATION 

BECOME A FRIEND OF SWAVESEY PRIMARY SCHOOL - many parents have already asked us whether they can donate anything to the school and for this we are truly thankful. The PTA is a registered charity and is now registered to claim Gift Aid so if this is something you might be interested in helping us with then please go to our donations page on https://www.pta-events.co.uk/swaveseyprimaryschoolpta  and donate as much or as little as you can. Every penny will be greatly appreciated!! If you qualify, please tick the box for Gift Aid. This will make your donation go even further!  

CORPORATE SPONSORS

BECOME A CORPORATE SPONSORS - We know this has been a tough year for businesses in general but we would like to appeal to any local companies who would be willing to support the primary school in any way they can whether financial or in other ways. If you wish to make a financial donation then please feel free to use https://www.pta-events.co.uk/swaveseyprimaryschoolpta. We sincerely hope that in 2021 we may be able to host our Summer Fete and Fireworks events (and hopefully more) and would love to have some companies sponsoring these events. We could offer an annual "Corporate Friends of Swavesey Primary School" package,whereby your company name would be used in any of our promotional materials for our events which would raise the profile of your firm within the local communities. Any promotional materials/ stalls at our events would be most welcome... in fact if there are any developers/ housebuilders out there that would be willing to ask their sign writing companies to create a FRIENDS OF SWAVESEY PRIMARY SCHOOL notice board so that we could slot in corporate friends logo's then that would be great too! Please do get in touch if you think you can help!

JOIN THE TEAM

We are always looking for new members to join our team so if you think you have 5 minutes or 50 minutes a week/ month to spare then do get in touch. If you don’t want to join the committee but may be able to help during the year, we would love to hear from you. We need help with things like wrapping, baking cakes, preparing food etc.

Here are just a few of the things the PTA has been able to support over the past year:

  • Purple Mash subscription
  • Christmas books donated for every child
  • Library software
  • iPads
  • Reading books

 

 

 

THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT. WITHOUT YOUR HELP WE WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO PROVIDE SO MANY GREAT FACILITIES FOR THE CHILDREN.
