Pencombe PTA

Logo_PTA_Charity_No

Pencombe CE Primary has a proactive PTA which is extremely well supported by hardworking, energetic committee members and generous parents, governors and friends.

The PTA willingly help at and coordinate events and support our activities throughout the year; this reflects the friendly and inclusive ethos of our school, and all the proceeds they raise helps to fund school activities and equipment.

The PTA also provides valuable social opportunities for those in our school community to meet and have fun. Everyone is welcome to participate (all parents and carers are automatically members) and creative minds are welcomed to dream up new fundraising ideas and to help decide how best to spend the money the PTA raises.

The PTA provides regular updates to keep in touch with all those involved with the school. Recent projects which have been funded by the PTA include subsidising transport for trips and swimming lessons, ICT equipment, such as iPads and the interactive whiteboard in Birch class, playground equipment, classroom supplies and materials.

Further information about the PTA can be found in the Parent’s Welcome Pack or by watching the Welcome to Pencombe School PTA video.

PTA Meetings

The PTA committee meets regularly to discuss the school wish list, our events and activities and anything else which needs our consideration.  Meeting details will be sent out via email/Seesaw about one week prior to the meeting date.  All meetings are open and any member can come along to find out what the PTA is planning, share ideas and get involved – we would love to see you!

Information from our previous committee meetings is available by contacting the PTA Secretary.

Details from our Annual General Meetings can be found below:

There are a number of ongoing fundraising activities that we use to help us raise money throughout the year, and which take very little effort!

50 Club

The 50 Club allows Pencombe School parents, teachers and friends to buy numbered tickets which are entered into a regular draw. When the tickets are drawn, a percentage of the profit is given as the prize, with the remainder going to PTA funds. This is a really easy way to support the school, with a good chance of winning something for yourself!  Membership forms will be available from the school at the start of each school year.

AmazonSmile

You can raise a donation every time you shop on Amazon by using AmazonSmile.  AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon.  It features the same products at the same prices as the standard Amazon site.  Sign up and register your charity as Pencombe Ce Va Primary School Parent Teacher Association on AmazonSmile and every time you shop, we will receive 0.5% of eligible purchases from the AmazonSmile Foundation, at no extra cost to you.  This is available when shopping via AmazonSmile website or by using the Amazon app.

TheGivingMachine

TheGivingMachine makes donating to Pencombe School PTA easy when shopping online. Buy something from an online shop via TheGivingMachine and you automatically generate a sales commission. This is turned into a charitable donation and passed onto the PTA.

Sign up and register your charity as Pencombe CE Primary School (sign up code 57781) and generate free donations every time you shop online by going via TheGivingMachine website, by downloading the Shop&Give desktop reminder, or by downloading the free Shop&Give app– just remember to go via TheGivingMachine every time you shop to raise a donation!

Stikins Name Labels

Save time and money with one multipurpose stick-on name label for clothes, shoes, lunch boxes and all school items – the PTA receives up to 30% commission on any order placed when quoting our School Fundraising Number 15623 before selecting how to pay.

Stamptastic

Stamptastic is a fantastic solution to all your labelling needs!  It is a compact, easy-to-use, personalised stamp that can be accurately positioned on most fabrics, wood, leather and some plastics, and the ink lasts wash after wash. 

Stamptastic also offers lots of others products, such as starting school items, gifts and festive products. Order any product, apply our PTA code HR74SH at the checkout and the PTA receives 15% commission.  

If you order a School Name Labels Deluxe Bundle and apply our PTA code HR74SH at the checkout, you will receive a FREE white fabric pen (worth £4.99) and the PTA will still receive 15% commission on the whole order.

Pre-loved Uniform Sales

Pre-loved uniform sales allow us to recycle school uniform whilst raising funds.  All types of clean school uniform (Pencombe branded and non-branded) in a good state of repair are collected at the start of each term (September, January, May). Items are then sorted and sales will take place at the end of each term (December, April, July). 

All items are sold for a donation, which is used to support our school.  Exact details of sale and collections dates and locations will be advertised nearer the time.

Textile Recycling

You can help raise funds by donating your good quality clothes and shoes by using the external clothing bank located at the bottom of the school ramp.  This has been provided by Recycle 4 Schools, a free fundraising scheme which helps schools raise funds through textile recycling, whilst also helping us to save the environment.  Click here for a full list of what can be donated.  If the clothing bank is full please contact the PTA to ensure we are aware and can arrange for it to be emptied.
