We trust you are all keeping well during this time.
As you know, we have sadly had to cancel our upcoming PTA fundraising events.
With the loss of these three brilliant events - The Family Challenge Night, May Disco and our main fund raiser, the Summer Fair we will have lost the potential to raise up to about £4500 - a huge amount of money that was destined to be put to super use.
Whilst the current situation means we can't raise funds for our school in the way we had hoped, we would like to explore new ways of bringing our school community together whilst supporting it with some much needed funds.
So, as it's Father's Day on 21st June, we are going to open up our annual
Father's Day Secret Shop online!
Gifts will be £3.50 each or £10 for 3
Orders must be placed by Wednesday 20th May & gifts can be chosen online by the children at some point after this date TBC.
If you would like to purchase from the shop, please send us the following information, using the contact form below:
1. Your name
2. Child's name & class
3. Total number of gifts you would like to buy e.g. 3
4. The intended recipient of EACH gift e.g Dad, Dad, Grandad.
5. A contact phone number to arrange payment/collection/delivery
*this number will only be temporarily stored by the PTA until 21st June 2020 It will not be shared to any third party and will only be used to contact you about this event.
Please ensure you send over all of the details listed above in no.s 1-5. Failure to do so may mean we are unable to accept your order.
We will be putting up temporary stalls of uniform for sale outside the school gates on
Tuesday 19th May
Wednesday 20th May
Half Term Week:
Monday 25th May
Wednesday 27th May
Friday 29th May
Times may vary and all dates are weather permitting.
We hope that you will be able to browse the uniform during your daily walk.
There will be an honesty box for donations (if you wish to pay with cash) or alternatively you can send your donation via bank transfer if you would rather - please message us for details.
As we are becoming increasingly accustomed to, please ensure you wash your hands both before and after visiting the stall and practise appropriate social distancing measures at all times.
Thank you for supporting the PTA.

All parents are very welcome to attend the PTA meetings. You can come to one, all, any you like and you can be as involved as you can / wish to be. There is no pressure. Meetings generally last an hour and
are held in school with the Headmaster - just turn up and ring the bell!. If you are interested in attending, please just come along ! We're a friendly bunch and we'd appreciate the extra support!
If you can't make the meetings but would like to be involved, we are always looking for help at our events - discos, secret shops, fairs etc. We need lots of support to run these events and so an hour of volunteering does make all the difference.
Of course our fundraising events are worthless unless you come along and support them! The proceeds go straight back to school and the children really love it too.
Second Hand Uniform Shop:
A link can be found at the top of this page to our online Second Hand Uniform Shop which operates from this website and also from our Facebook Page. There are hundreds of high quality items of uniform for sale. All proceeds of the shop go directly back to school.
You can support the PTA's fundraising target by generating free donations for us every time you shop online via TheGivingMachine. Sign up, install the app on your mobile device or set the 'shop and give' reminder on your desktop and get started now. It doesn't cost you anything, but raises vital funds for our school. Please do tell your friends and family how they can help us at no extra cost too
If you would like further information about any PTA events, if you have some ideas or feedback that may be of help, if you'd like to volunteer or have any other enquiry, please speak to our chair - Kathy (mum of Thomas in Year 4), a PTA Committee member or email us - firstname.lastname@example.org
We are also very active on the 'Parents of Greenmount Primary School, Bury' Facebook page and we have all of our Second Hand Uniform stock uploaded into albums on that Facebook page.
