Current Members –

We also extend a warm welcome to new members, Wendy Szelong Cowell, Claire Williams, Nicola Pearle, Darshana Patel, Emma Reid and we thank our existing members Stephanie Ricciardi, Sarah Thomas and Phillipa Murphy and Penny Scorah.
Matched funding is a scheme whereby Employers match funds that their employees raise for registered charities. Sometimes this is capped but it can be a really fantastic, easy way for the PTA to raise extra funds. Please check if your employer participates in this scheme.
If you are an employer, you are able to claim tax relief on such donations.
Our registered charity number is 1115461.
Do you shop with Amazon.co.uk?
Amazon Smile is a fundraising initiative where a percentage of the value of each qualifying purchase is donated to a selected charity. If Summercroft Primary School PTA is chosen, for every qualifying purchase 0.5% of the net purchase price will be donated to our charity, at no extra charge to you! So if an item is purchased for £10.00 excluding VAT then Amazon will donate 5p to the PTA, £50.00 and Amazon would donate 25p.
There is no difference in price to the customer whether you use the normal Amazon website or the Amazon Smile website and you use your normal Amazon account details.
Summary of the Financial Year 2020 to 2021
The PTA plays a vital role in raising funds for the school whilst building community. We seek to create magical memories for the children and fun events for both the children and their families. We give careful consideration to events, ticket prices, games, stalls and refreshments so that we can be inclusive for all families no matter the budget.
We are delighted to announce that in the last financial year, £12,093.98 was raised!
This is absolutely incredible. This was raised through several events during the year.
· Second Hand Uniform Sale
· Sponsored Bounce
· Halloween Disco
· Spooky Halloween Sweetie Sale
· Christmas cards and Gifts
· Festive Hamper Raffle
· Christmas Disco and Non-uniform day
· Operation Library
· Pizza and Cookie Event
· Easter Treats & Treasures
· Nursery Leaver Teatowels
· Break the Rules Day
· Outdoor Cinema Screen

And a whopping £10,000 towards the interactive learning screens for the classrooms.
Thank you to all the Summercroft families for all your contributions, whether that be attending events or volunteering at events. We really couldn't have achieved all that we have without your continued support and enthusiasm.
