Acomb First School have a very active, welcoming and supportive PTA. PTA stands for Parents and Teachers Association. We are a registered charity. The PTA have organised a range of fundraising events including cake sales, summer fairs, school discos and many other wonderful events.
 Any parent or carer is automatically a member and welcome to help in any way they can. Parents are always needed to help at school events or to make posters, wrap tombola prizes, bake cakes, fold raffle tickets…there really is a job for everyone, no matter how much or little time you can spare!!

Over the last few years, the PTA have raised money to:

  • Purchase new Read Write Inc books
  • Buy leavers hoodies for the Y4 children
  • Fund transport for a variety of trips

 If you would like to get involved please contact Mrs Collingwood at school and she will give you the information you need.


Amazon Smile 

We would like to encourage all our supporters who use Amazon for their online shopping to start using AmazonSmile instead. You can access all the same products at the same prices as ordinary Amazon. But up to 5% of the money you pay is gifted to your named charity (select One Community when prompted to do so.) It is really easy.

You cannot use Amazon Smile with the Amazon App on the iPhone. However, the good news is that you can set up a shortcut to the Amazon Smile website which gives a near identical experience to the app. It’s very quick and easy to do.

If you have the Amazon App installed, please remove it. To do this, tap and hold the app icon until it starts to jiggle. Tap the cross at the top left of the icon and confirm that you want to delete it. Don’t worry, this will not delete your Amazon account or any of your settings.

Now load Safari (the iPhone internet browser) and go to

Tap the ‘share’ button 

on the bottom of the screen.
Tap the ‘Add to Home Screen’ icon. You may need to swipe to the left to see this.

You will now have an Amazon Smile icon on your home screen which you can use in exactly the same way you used the App.
