Parent Teacher Association
We always need volunteers!
Please lend a hand to help raise money for Swaffield.
You can get involved in a big or a small way, please talk to one of the committee/your class rep or email us at email@example.com
Did you know that the PTA is a registered charity (number 278265), and that you can donate direct?
Simply use this link https://wonderful.org/charity/swaffieldpta
If you are a UK taxpayer, please do say “yes” to Gift Aid and complete the declaration – it means we get an extra 25% on top of your donation. It also means that if you are a higher rate tax payer, you can claim tax relief on your donations to us.
Everyone who is a parent/carer at Swaffield is automatically a member
of the PTA and we look forward to welcoming lots of you to help us
raise money for school this year.
Please do get involved!
