The PTA continues to organise events for our children and parents and carers so we can all enjoy while raising much needed funds for school. This year we have a new Secretary, Becky Penfold, and new Volunteer Co-ordinator, Katherine Yeoman joining Laura Haynes, Vikki Gimson and Bego Escorihuela in the committee.

CORONAVIRUS SUPPORT GROUPS

Here is some useful information for the upcoming weeks:
Check if your street has a whatsapp support group. If not, consider setting one up to look after each other.
The PTA has created a home support group with links to other support groups in the area. Feel free to add any information you think may help others.
Please keep safe.

Friday 13/03 Cinema afternoon -POSTPONED

Our inaugural PTA Film session will be for the whole school, from Reception to Y6. This will be a chance for the kids to get together to watch a movie, eat some fun snacks and be in with a chance to win the DVD shown whilst helping to raise money for the school.

Ways to help fundraise for the school

Through Charitable Giving

Did you know that the PTA is a registered charity?
Individuals, sole-traders and partners who make a donation to charity can claim tax relief. Limited companies who make a donation can reduce the amount of corporation tax they pay by the same amount. Full details of these schemes can be found on the HMRC website at www.gov.uk.

If you’re thinking of taking advantage of one of these schemes why not think of us? The money we raise is donated to the school for projects large and small that will benefit our children.  You can make a donation here: https://localgiving.org/charity/elm-grove-parent-teacher-association/

Charity number: 1144560
