We would like to say hello and welcome back to current and new parents.

The PTA has had a little change around this year and has a new chairman Bego Escorihuela and Volunteer Co-ordinator Helen Pravda. Below are our posters showing the committee members and class reps.

Forts Challenge

Mr Maestro, Mrs Cornforth and Miss Gates are running the 3 Forts Half Marathon to raise some money for Elm Grove Primary School. The half marathon is a tough, trail challenge but we hope to have a few laughs dragging each other up and down the hills.

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

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.
