WELCOME TO YOUR PTA!  

 

White Waltham’s Parent Teacher Association (“PTA”) plays a valuable role in building social links between the school and families.  The PTA is active in organising fund raising for the school.  Beyond direct monetary support, we provide a network that enables families to get involved in school life to make a difference to the quality and variety of activities that the school can offer.

 

BUT it is much, much more than just fundraising!  The PTA exists to provide closer links between home and school, and it is an excellent way to bring staff, parents and friends together socially in support of the school working towards a common goal.  And it’s fun - just ask any of the PTA Committee or helpers!  In bringing the parents, staff and local community together, our PTA has always succeeded in its efforts and allows us all to have fun even during the sometimes hard work.

 

Please take a few minutes to read the information contained on this page which is regularly updated.  If you have any questions, please contact the Office or Tracy & Rebecca @ pta@whitewaltham.org smiley.

 

UPCOMING EVENTS:

 

Summer Fayre - Saturday 27th June 2-5pm

 

 

ONGOING FUNDRAISING via Matched Funding : one parent, who has supported the PTA (by manning stalls, supervising children and assisting with pre-event organising) raised £1,365 in 2015-2016 through his Company's Matched Funding Scheme.  

 

"Matched Funding" (or matched giving) is a simple way of maximising the fundraising efforts of your individual PTA volunteers. It is an informal albeit corporate arrangement between a Company and their employee.  Not all Companies offer it but those that do will pledge a sum of money relating to the amount their employee has raised for or donated to the charity of their choice.

 

For example, a parent, who works for a Company that offers “Matched Funding”, volunteers to work on the refreshment stall at the PTA Summer Fayre.  The profit made by the stall is £100. The parent's employer will then match this amount with a further £100.

 

Some organisations will match fund on a £ for £ basis, others will stipulate what they are prepared to give. It is likely that an upper limit will be applied along with certain criteria such as the recipient organisation being a registered charity. 

 

"Matched Funding" is an easy way to raise more funds so please explore this possibility with your employer!
