The PTA committee together with Mr Moore believe that the money raised by the PTA should be used whenever possible to benefit every child at the school. We have decided to purchase book bags for all children that are new to the school and we will be contributing towards the cost of the school trips.
Below is a summary of the funds raised so far and the larger items currently on the school’s wish list.

Ongoing Fundraising Projects
Together with the many events that we host throughout the year we undertake the following ongoing fundraising projects.
Toast is a special fundraising activity. With invaluable support from Parent helpers the PTA run a toast service each morning. Without the volunteers it would not be possible to run the scheme. If anyone is interested in joining the toast rota, either permanently or as cover for sickness we would be glad to hear from you via firstname.lastname@example.org
James Brindley Lottery
We are excited to announce that we have recently launched a James Brindley School Lottery. Following the registration of our lottery with Salford Council we are now able to run a Lottery at the school for Parents, carers, staff and friends of the school.
We intend to hold ten draws per academic year (one each calendar month during term time). Numbers can be purchased in advance for the whole year at a cost of £1 per number per draw. The prize for each draw will be 1/3 of the total proceeds each month. For example if 150 numbers are sold for a draw there will be a £50 prize. The funds raised will go towards the equipment and activities on our wish list, and will benefit all of the children within the school. If you haven’t already signed up for the remainder of this academic year please email the PTA for a registration form.
