We’ve teamed up with Doughies for a family fun night in!.
Order your pizza and or cookie making kits and you’ll receive everything you need make an artisan margarita pizza (regular or vegan) and warm yummy cookies in your home oven. Unfortunately Doughies are unable to provide a gluten free option as they feel the dough is too sticky so difficult to handle.
Link to order below –
We would love you to post your Pizza on our PTA Facebook page. We have Obi – Manager at Dough & Co who will be judging the pizza’s. The winner will receive a voucher to enjoy a pizza at Dough & Co’s fabulous new restaurant in Bishop’s Stortford.
Pizza and Cookie kits need to be ordered by Saturday 19th March and can be collected at pick up on Friday 25th from the PTA in front of school Reception.
PTA Social is on Thursday 3rd March 2022 from 7pm at The Nag’s Head (216 Dunmow Rd, Bishop's Stortford CM23 5HP).
This is just a chance to meet the PTA and other parents and carers from our school. There is no pressure to join or help with PTA events if you attend, we just thought after the last few years of our events having to be remote and faceless, this was a nice occasion to get together for a cuppa or a glass of wine. The Nags Head have been very generous and reserved a space free of charge for the PTA Guests. Any food or drinks that you have you will need to purchase yourself.
When: Thursday 3rd March
What Time: From 19:00 - late
Where: Nag's Head 216 Dunmow Rd, Bishop's Stortford CM23 5HP
We hope you can come along.

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.

Summary of the Financial Year 2019 to 2020
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 event 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, £23,630.80 was raised!
This is absolutely incredible. We ran several events throughout the year and were also very generously gifted several thousands of pounds through Matched Funding.
Thank you also to The Entertainer toy shop who chose to donate £1000 to us!
The fund raising activities and events were as follows;
Woodland Fun Run with Birchwood High School
Christmas Cards and Gifts
Christmas Movie and Munch and Mini Fair
Monthly Treats and Treasures
2nd Hand Uniform Sales
Clothes Donations through Happy Bags
Raffle prizes - Special thanks to all the local companies who gifted prizes and services
This enabled the PTA to provide the following grants to the school;
Bike Shed Repairs
Carnival Musical Instruments and event with Bangdrum
Coram Life Bus
Annual subscription to Times Tables Rockstars
We have also committed to £300 for each classroom for supplies to enhance the experience of all the students
We also invested in a PTA storage unit as the roof was leaking in the old one
The school is currently working on a plan for a significant investment which we will be excited to share news of once they are ready to progress this.
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.
