Chew Valley School Society (PTA)

The Chew Valley School Society (PTA) is a group of parents, teachers, staff and friends of the school who raise money to support Chew Valley School and its students. The committee meet regularly to organise fundraising events as well as providing support and refreshments at events such as the new intake parents' evening and Christmas Carol Concert. The Society is well supported by parents but so that it can continue to provide financial support to the school and students, which is essential for the continued success of the school in the current financial climate, we welcome more parents and the wider Chew Valley community and businesses getting involved with the committee and attending our events.

Amazon Smile

Another easy way of donating without spending. Amazon make a donation to us every time you spend through

Text Donation

We know that parents are incredibly busy and often can’t get to fund-raising events at school. Would you feel better about that if you were able to make a donation anyway?!  Text CVSS to 70085 to donate £5.  If you would like to donate a different amount text CVSS 10 (or any value between 1 and 20) to 70085.  If you wish to donate more, please send multiple texts.

Texts cost the value of your donation plus your standard network rate.

Standing Order

Some parents are able to be very generous and use standing orders to support various charities including the school. Might you be able to make a regular monthly donation to the school?  A small monthly donation (with the Gift Aid it will attract if you are a tax payer) will really add up.  A form is attached if you feel able to support us in this way.

Standing Order Mandate Form

Gift Aid

Whichever way you choose to help the school, it is very important to register for Gift Aid. Whether you are able to give anything today or not, please fill in the attached Gift Aid Form and return it to the school so we can keep you registered for any future donation you are able to make.

Employers Match Funding

Do you work for a large employer?  If you do, speak to your HR department and see if they offer match funding for schools.  Wouldn't it be great if all or some of the money we raise for band and quiz nights was matched by our parents' employers?  For further info Thank you.


Thank you for the fantastic support you give to Chew Valley School to support them in providing an outstanding education for our children.
