What is the PTA?

The PTA is a group made up of parents, grandparents and guardians. There is also a teacher representative.

What does the PTA do?

The PTA meets once a term (four times a year). We discuss fundraising ideas and plan social events, these include:

  • Special Events for Pupils
  • Christmas Fair & Winter Wonder
  • Movie Nights
  • Summer Fair
  • Garden Projects

Why do we need the PTA?

The PTA raises essential funds for the school which has allowed the purchase of resources that benefits all pupils. Some of these include:

  • Computer Equipment
  • Curtains in the classrooms
  • Partial funding for school trips
  • Outdoor Classroom
  • Extra supplies for classrooms

Can You Help Us?

We know that parents are busy and many may not be able to commit to every meeting/event.

We would appreciate any help that you have to offer.

An active member of the PTA

This involves attending the majority of committee meetings, usually about once a term and then helping to run events that we hold.  Planning meetings are held over Zoom so that there is no need for childcare.

PTA helper

A PTA Helper gives us a helping hand to set up, attend and run events.

PTA “Doer”

Would you be willing to help with smaller jobs such as baking and collecting raffle prizes or crafting at home? Think about being a “doer”.  Anyone can join in including older siblings, grandparents or friends.  The more the merrier!

Do you have fundraising ideas?

Do you have any fundraising ideas or skills to offer?

Willing to help?
