ABOUT OUR PTA

WELCOME

blogPTA

We are a dedicated team of mums, dads and teachers across all year groups who work hard to:

  • raise money on behalf of the school for “extras”
  • provide FUN events for children, parents and teachers
  • contribute to the sense of community within the school

All parents are automatically members of the PTA and we always welcome new parents to join the Committee. We are flexible and welcome all and any help you can give! You can contact us at any time by sending an email to: pta@gardenfields.herts.sch.uk.

FINANCE

We align our donations with the school improvement plan and have created a budget to reflect where needs are greatest. PTA Budget Document – coming soon!

EASY WAYS TO RAISE MONEY

MATCHED GIVING (PDF) – This document explains how companies/employers can help with our fund-raising efforts.

GIFT AID DECLARATION FORM (PDF) – Donating through Gift Aid means we can claim an extra 25p for every £1 you give.

PRE-OWNED SCHOOL UNIFORM – We welcome donations of uniform in good condition your child has outgrown (including PE kits, coats, book bags, etc). Please hand these in at the school office in a bag marked PTA. The PTA hold regular second-hand uniform sales during the year and also at major PTA events.

EASY FUNDRAISING – If you shop online, why not raise money for Garden Fields School? It won’t cost you a penny and all it means is an extra couple of clicks before you visit your normal online retailer in the usual way. There are over 2000 retailers (such as M&S, Amazon, Argos, John Lewis) and you can earn the school up to 15% every time you shop. Click the link above to see how easy it is to register and start raising money! Click here for a quick guide.

TEXTILE RECYCLING – Raise money for the PTA and recycle at the same time! The recycle bank can be found by the school bike sheds. Items we collect are: adult and children clothing, shoes and trainers, handbags and belts, sheets, curtains and towels. All items must be clean, dry, wearable clothing and shoes paired. Please place in tied bags. More information: www.uktextilerecycling.co.uk

Proudly working alongside Leaders, our local estate agents who have sponsored our Circus, Christmas Fair and May Fair.
