The PTA raises money to benefit pupils by funding equipment and activities that enrich their school lives. An equally important function is to involve the parent community in the life of the school and provide opportunities for parents to meet and get to know one another.
With these aims in mind, the PTA committee organise a number of fun, social events for families during the year. These are really enjoyed by both parents and children, whilst raising valuable funds for the school.
In the past, money raised by the PTA has been used to help buy new laptops for the children, play equipment for the children to use at lunchtime, reading books for the library and to make improvements to the outside space: including an all-weather surface in Reception.
Annual events run by the PTA include a Christmas Disco with lots of stalls and a visit from Father Christmas and a very successful family barbeque in the summer.
All parents automatically become members of the PTA when their children join the school and details of PTA events and activities are included in the Headteacher's weekly newsletter.
Help is always needed to organise and run events and getting involved by joining the PTA committee or volunteering to help with an event is a great way to get to know other parents and help the school at the same time. We hope we can look forward to hearing from you...
