How To Get Involved
Join the PTA
All the PTA events rely on parental help and support. We are fortunate at Sacred Heart that so many parents are willing to get involved. But we always need new volunteers to spread the load and to succeed those parents that we lose each year as their children leave Year 6. We are open to new ideas and suggestions and welcome more hands-on help in a number of areas.
Periodically the PTA asks for help in respect to particular events from acting as supervisors at the children‘s discos and film clubs, designing a poster, marketing an event to baking cakes and putting up gazebos.
Whatever your talent or interest or your business connections, however modest you deem them to be, we will be able to find a use for them!
These are held once a month. Everyone is welcome (not just committee members). We try to have a balance of meetings at different times to suit different lifestyles. It is a great way of making new friendships and finding out what’s going on at school. We have lots of helpers that 'dip in and out' and this is hugely appreciated.
If you have any unwanted clean clothes, belts, shoes and handbags please collect in the bags we send home every term for which the PTA receives money
Help while you shop
Register on www.easyfundraising.org.uk and every time you shop online at thousands of retailers, a percentage of the sale value will go to the Sacred Heart PTA charity account – it won’t cost you a penny! It really is as easy as that!
Did you know that many companies offer to match fundraising completed by their employees? Recently, an entire sports team kit was funded in this way. Talk to your employer to find out if they could match funds which you help to raise.
Donations, Sponsorship and Gift Aid
Did you know it is possible to make a regular donation to the school PTA and that any donations or sponsorship may be eligible for Gift Aid? We have a very simple form to complete, enter your name, address and tick a box to confirm you are eligible – easy!!
We have a mydonate page where you or your family can make regular donations.
Prizes for events
We are always on the lookout for prizes for events. Do you have business contacts or friends who could help or sponsor a prize?
