A PTA (Parent Teacher Association) is intended to facilitate parental participation in a school, and is a great way to bring together parents, teachers and the local community to raise funds and to support the school.
Our PTA are committed to supporting our children to enjoy curriculum enrichment activities.
Our committee are as follows:
Chair: Claire Parfitt
Vice-Chair: Susan Bushill
Secretary: Bella Freeman
Treasurer: I-Cheng Austen
Parent PTA members: Sue Williams, Jaynie Edwards, Sarah Waterfall, Mel Garland, Katie Bowden, Zoe Gaut, Claire Wells, Zoe Humphries, Vicki Jones, Louise Jones, Laura Lowe and Lara Mortleman.New members can be co-opted onto the PTA at any time during the year, so please see a committee member or your child's teacher if you are interested in joining us.
What the PTA raises money for:
The PTA's role is to raise funds to pay for activities that are fun, exciting and engaging, and that help enhance and enrich the children's learning and enhance their cultural and social experiences.
They allow up to £250 per year for each class to either put towards the cost of a trip (or travel), or for a classroom activity/visitor.
At Christmas time, the PTA have historically covered the cost of a cinema visit and travel for the whole school.
They also provide ice pops for all of the children on Sports Day.
During the School year, the PTA always hold two School discos - one for Halloween and one around February half term.
Each term they aim to run one family event. In the past this has included breakfast with santa, chocolate bingo, the animal man, an evening with clowns and a hoedown.
The PTA always need more help and support and would welcome new members, and any help you could give, such as baking cakes, helping set or staff events/stalls or donating items for the raffle draws.
