MAKE A DONATION
BECOME A FRIEND OF SWAVESEY PRIMARY SCHOOL - many parents/ local companies 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!
|BECOME A CORPORATE SPONSOR - 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 have helped pay for over the past 2 years:
nteractive Teaching Boards for the classrooms,
Subscriptions to Purple Mash, Twinkle and Junior Librarian platforms,
Books for the new phonics scheme,
Christmas presents & party supplies,
packed lunch trolleys
and lots of books!
THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT. WITHOUT YOUR HELP WE WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO PROVIDE SO MANY GREAT FACILITIES FOR THE CHILDREN.
