Welcome to the PTA section of the website.
Our PTA work enormously hard to raise a significant amount of funds, which are ploughed back into the school in various ways for the benefit of all our children. Events range from after school Discos, sponsored events and the Summer Fair, to providing the opportunity for children to purchase items such as Mother's Day gifts and Christmas cards. The PTA work closely with the school, and members offer various amounts of their time to help make these events possible. The PTA also organise large community events including the Firework Extravaganza, Winter Wonderland and Happy's Circus. More details about these large scale events can be found in the Events page under the Community tab of the website.
Below you can see some photos of the events, along with just a few of the things the PTA have funded, the latest addition being the financing of one of the school's brand new minibuses!
The school are extremely grateful for the continued support from parents, carers, pupils and the community, which help make our PTA such a success. The PTA always need more volunteers so please email us (email@example.com) or see the document at the bottom of this page if you wish to join in the fun!
We would very much like to welcome anybody (mums, dads, grandparents, carers!) who have some spare time to come along and help us. You do not have to attend committee meetings, although you are more than welcome to do so. We always require help for setting up/clearing up at events, running stalls etc. Most importantly, everyone will be made to feel very welcome. We are a friendly bunch of parents and can assure you that you will have fun. Honest!
If you are interested in helping us to benefit our children then please either email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call Carol (PTA Secretary) via the school on 01227 372159 or see her in the PTA Kiosk on a Monday, Wednesday or Friday morning. Alternatively see the document at the bottom of this page for more details.
