The PTA

We are very fortunate at our school to have a PTA that is and has been such an integral part of the school community for many years. In its time the PTA has raised thousands of pounds, which have been spent on improving equipment and resources to enhance our children’s education and the facilities in school in general.

All parents and members of the school community can get involved if they want to, even if they only have a small amount of time available, and all parents are automatically members of the Association when their children join our school.

We have, over time, developed strong links with the local community and are always well supported by both residents and businesses, for which we are very grateful.  Many of our local businesses are very generous in their donations of raffle prizes etc, and some have taken part in our Christmas and Summer Fairs.

Our PTA committee meets regularly to arrange fundraising events. We also have a number of parents who although they do not attend our meetings can always be counted on to support us at events. Many of our events would be unable to run without them and for this assistance we are very grateful. If you feel you could help us in this way please contact any member of the PTA.

How We Raise Money

Like most PTAs, the majority of our funds are raised through the events that we run.  Some of our most popular events are the Christmas and Summer Fetes, Fun Nights and Children’s Discos.  We hold an annual Christmas shopping trip and gift sales for Mothers Day and Fathers Day.

We are always grateful for any additional suggestions for fundraising ideas.

You can help us raise money too when online shopping!  Click onwww.easyfundraising.org.uk and sign up. By shopping  using the links from this web site (including Amazon, M &S, eBay, many other famous High Street Stores and even the lottery), you will be raising money for our school at no extra cost to yourself.

How We Get Information to You

PTA letters are issued as necessary and include information on forthcoming events and dates plus requests for assistance, when we are planning large events.   

Minutes for meetings can be found ..

How You Can Get Involved

There are lots of ways you can help and support your child through the PTA.

Offering to help before events or at other times during the year is so valuable – it really is a case of ‘many hands make light work’.  It doesn’t matter if you can’t help on a regular basis, or even if you can’t come into school.  There are always little jobs that can be done from home if you have half an hour to spare e.g. wrapping gifts, preparing raffle tickets etc.  We really couldn’t achieve what we do without the unseen ‘army of help’ that exists in school.

You can of course if you feel able, volunteer to be a Committee Member.  You can help by letting us know if you have any contacts or skills we could use – everything is potentially valuable to us.

Thank you for taking the time to visit our webpages.  We hope you now know a little more about your Parent Teacher Association. On behalf of all the children we would like to thank you for your very valuable support which enriches their learning experiences and makes their time in school so enjoyable.
