The PTA run a number of events each year with the primary aim of fundraising. In the last academic year we donated £23,000 to various departments throughout the school and have already agreed so far for this academic year in excess of £13,000 to Key projects. This is only possible through the support we receive from the Staff, Pupils, Parents and friends of the school.
We are lucky to have a strong well organised PTA. There is an opportunity to play a part in supporting the social events in the school and to meet other parents. The Headteacher or a senior member of staff attends each meeting and ideas are pooled in a friendly atmosphere. Full PTA meetings are generally held in the school library roughly once every two months. Dates of meetings are listed in the school calendar. All parents/carers are very welcome to attend.
The PTA committee are supported by teams of volunteers to help run individual PTA events. We appreciate that while not everyone will have time to spare throughout the year, they may be able to help out for a few hours now and again. If this could be you, please email us, all support is enthusiastically received.
We aim to run our second-hand stall along side the majority of our events in future. Also we plan to open the stall for a few hours on one morning every month. The dates and times will be published on the website. If you can assist or wish to purchase please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org
