Parent Teacher Association
Welcome to your PTA
Welcome back to school! We are excited to look ahead to a more normal year and hopefully some fun events to come.
Following our extremely popular tea towel and Christmas card fundraisers we were able to contribute to some fantastic Christmas treats for our pupils including a cinema trip for KS2 and a brilliant squashbox performance for KS1. We are also looking at what outdoor space projects we can work towards – watch this space!
Dates for your diary:
We hold a termly meeting, with smaller project meetings set up as needed. Our next meeting is Thurs 20th Jan 2022 8pm, please email us for a link.
What is the PTA and how does it run?
The PTA is a charity and is run entirely by volunteers. We raise money to fund some fantastic school projects that really enhance the experience of all children at school. We raise around £7000 - £10000 a year and use this in a number of ways; for example we fund coach costs for school trips and camps; provide Christmas treats such as theatre shows; purchase extra equipment for example Chromebooks, football goals and sports uniform; fund workshops and resources for science week and art week. Through the PTA money is donated towards a hardship fund that enables all pupils to afford camps and school trips. We also work hard to add some fun extras to school life such as the school discos, popcorn clubs, Christmas and May fayres and sponsored biathlons – to name a few.
We couldn’t run any of our events or fundraising efforts without our fabulous volunteers! If you can spare any time to help either as a one-off at an event, take on the admin for a project or come along to meetings with ideas we would love to have you. We are also currently recruiting for our committee – please see the flyer attached below for full details. No experience necessary and a new influx of enthusiasm is essential to keep us going strong! Send us an email at email@example.com or a message on our Facebook/Instagram for more info.
If you would like to donate there is a PTA box at the school office or please get in touch to organise a direct donation. We are currently working on setting up a remote digital donation platform - watch this space.
