Sandfield PTA (Parent Teacher Association)

Sandfield PTA (Parent Teacher Association) is our parent/carer organisation that creates a programme of fund raising and social events for the school community. The money raised by the events is used to make the school environment even better.  ​We always need volunteers and it’s not as time-consuming as you might think.  Just a couple of hours a month from you can make all the difference in the funds we raise.

Events and activities raise thousands of pounds each year which goes towards making the school environment even better for our children. Over the last few years we have raised over £10,000-£11,000 each year which is fantastic for such a small school.  We are extremely grateful to have such a pro-active and caring parent community who work together to raise the much needed funds.  Over the last couple of years we have put this money towards purchasing iPads for both Key Stages, as well as new sporting activities and events for the children in order to raise physical and mental wellbeing for all.

Help is always needed and remember, when your child starts at Sandfield Primary School, you automatically become a member of the PTA!

Easy Fundraising


To help raise money for our school, it’s easy! Next time you buy something on-line.

Instead of shopping directly through your chosen store go to and shop with your chosen store via this website. For each purchase you make you will generate a cashback donation to the school at no cost to you.  For more details of this wonderful scheme and help our children benefit from the extra money raised.  Please click here for further details!

How it works

Easyfundraising provides a FREE service where you can shop with your favourite online stores, and at no extra cost raise funds for our school.  You still shop directly with each retailer as you would normally, but simply by using the links from easyfundraising, each purchase you make will generate a cashback donation to the school.  If you already shop online, why not help the school at no extra cost from the purchases you would normally make anyway.  You pay the same prices exactly as if you had visited each retailer’s website directly.  Using easyfundraising will not cost you a penny more.

Why do retailers support our fundraising?

It seems very generous, but when you buy online the cost to the retailer is much lower, as there is no shop, salesperson, heating, electricity, rates etc.  Therefore, retailers are more than happy to help a good cause, like our school, when new online customers are introduced to them via the easyfundraising website.

How much will I raise?

Up to 15% of every purchase is donated to the school, depending on which retailer you select and what you buy.  The exact donation that will be paid is displayed next to each retailer listing.  With some categories such as mobile phones and insurance there is a cash value rather than a percentage of the purchase made.

Am I dealing with the retailer or easyfundraising?

You are still dealing with each retailer, easyfundraising simply record your visit to their website and reward the school when you make a purchase.

How to make sure the school will benefit from your purchases?

To start with you need to register with easyfundraising as a user of their service.  From their home page you need to click on ‘register a user’.  You  can then set up your details, choose a password and register the school as your chosen organisation to support. Then just remember to use easyfundraising every time you shop.

Which retailers take part in this scheme?

There are so many retailers and service providers, big and small, who are part of the scheme, too many we can not list them all here.  However, it’s easy to search for which retailers are part of the scheme and shop with them once you have registered.  You can buy all sorts of goods and services via easyfundraising just like you would normally do online from car/house insurance, to holidays, flights/ferry crossings, mobile phones and broadband, to stores that you would normally shop at in the High Street or online with.  The list is by no means exhaustive!  Have a look at easyfundraising and start shopping with your favourite stores.  If you have any questions pop into the office and we will try and help you.  Place a sticker on or near your computer so you won’t forget next time, and every time you shop online, use easyfundraising to help the school too.

Thank you.
