Parent Teacher Association (PTA)
We are very fortunate at our school to have a really active 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, buildings, resources, supporting class visits, all to enhance the children’s education.
Our PTA is about much more than just fundraising. The PTA exists to provide closer links between home and school, and it is an excellent way to bring staff, parents and friends together socially in support of the school, working towards a common goal. It is fun too – just ask any of the PTA committee members or helpers.
Role of the Committee
Our PTA committee currently consists of parents and members of the school Staff, the Headteacher, an elected Chair, Vice Chair, treasurer and Secretary.
Meetings are on a regular basis once or twice a term, with smaller groups meeting as necessary to organise larger events.
Summer and Christmas Fayre, Fashion Shows, Quiz Nights, Children’s Discos, Mother’s and Father’s Day and Christmas Gifts. We are always open to new suggestions.
How you can get involved
Offering to help before events 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 small jobs that can be done in the home 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.
