Parent Teacher Association (PTA)

Did you know that when you join our school, you are automatically enrolled in the Parent, Teacher Association?

The PTA works tirelessly each year to raise extra funds for our school, so that we can buy fantastic resources like the astroturf pitch, new projectors for halls, gardening tools for the forest school, swim equipment to be used in swimming lessons, new playground equipment and benches, as well as funding some added extras for all the children in school like a music performance or circus skills workshop each year. 

We really appreciate the hard work that goes into running such events, but they are not possible without the help of YOU, the parents of our pupils. Perhaps you have a special skill, a fundraising idea, or contacts in the local area. You may even just have a spare half hour, to help with set up an event or run a stall.  All help is welcome and much appreciated.

Ways to Support the School

There are lots of ways you can help support the school:

  1. Join our School Lottery: Tickets are just £1, with a winner from the school community every week. 40% of this money comes straight to the PTA to spend on the children. 
  2. Online Shopping ( Raise money every time you shop online. Select the company you want to buy from via the site and they will donate a % to the school. There is an App you can download to make it even easier.
  3. Matched Funding Companies or businesses match the amount that an employee donates or fundraises for the PTA.  Find out if your company does this?
  4. Offer your help at PTA events, whether that be the Summer or Christmas Fair, Laserworks, or helping with after school sales. An hour here and there can really make the difference
  5. Donate good quality clothes etc to our Bag 2 School collections (1 a term) - the PTA receives 40p per kilo, and you get some space back in your house!
  6. Join the PTA Committee - our fundraising events don't just happen by magic! There is a small but dedicated committee, and we would love to have some new members to help spread the load.

Thank you, and see you at an event soon!

About our events

The PTA organises many events that are firm fixtures in the calendar year such as the Laserworks display (late October/early November), Christmas Fayre, the summer fair or Circus, children's discos and after school sales (donuts, cakes, ice creams etc). We regularly hold second hand clothes collections and own clothes / crazy hair days in return for a minimal donation.

See our Calendar of Events showing how you can get involved throughout the school year.
