The PTA is a group of parent and staff volunteers who organise fundraising activities for the school. The PTA aims to provide the 'extras' that the school is unable to finance from the normal budgets, through events and activities that are fun for the children and their families.
In the past we have contributed to many school projects including the purchase of new home readers for KS1, additional staging for both halls, playground equipment, role play toys for Reception, the hire of Cineworld Cinema for screening of the children’s stop animation films and funding for the Year 6 Leavers Book. More recently we have approved funding requests to assist with the purchase of a public access defibrillator, uniform for the basketball team, new digital cameras for every class and funding for Year 5 to attend the Brilliant Bristol course. We also fund many smaller items such as wet weather games, aprons and competition prizes. Ideas for things that would benefit the children are always welcome!
Term 1 and the start of Term 2 have been extremely busy and we’d like to thank everyone for their support. We’ve held three successful Fairy Cake Fridays, raising £587.06, a Rags 2 Riches collection raising £135.59, our Personalised Christmas Cards project raising £2104.15 and finally Firework Night which raised around £1200 in total. We also held a family photo shoot on November with Vicky from Looking Glass Photography. We have more Fairy Cake Fridays planned and of course our big event in Term 2 is the Christmas Fayre which is being held on Friday 12th December from 5:30-7:30pm.
If you would like to help with fund-raising activities, in any way at all, then please consider coming along to one of our committee meetings. There will be no pressure to get involved, but you may like to find out more about what we're doing.
At committee meetings we plan what events we want to run, who can organise them and who will help, and how we will spend the money that has been raised.
It's an opportunity to meet new people and make new friends. You can also have the satisfaction of knowing that you are directly benefiting your child's learning environment.
You can contact the PTA via email. email@example.com
We send out a newsletter each term to keep you up to date, and we have a meeting every term to discuss our next events - the dates for the coming year are listed below, so why not come along.
