Give as You Earn
We are very lucky to have some parents who make a regular donation tot eh PTA through the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) “Give as You Earn” scheme. This is a payroll giving scheme which allows people to make a donation from their pre-tax salary, meaning that part of their donation comes from money that would have otherwise gone to HMRC.
For further details please visit the CAF Give As You Earn pages.

If you’re thinking of running a marathon or doing any kind of event for charity, there couldn’t be a more worthy cause than enhancing the education of your children. All sponsored events at the school use this online page to collect donations, but there’s nothing to stop parents using this vehicle too to raise much needed funds for the school.
