The PTA which consists of parents and staff of the school takes an active part in supporting the school and provides special funds for school. Functions of a social and/or education nature are held throughout the year. There is an annual general meeting when parents and staff are elected onto the committee.


The basic aims of the organisation are:

  1. To raise money for the benefit of the school.

  2. To enable and support a partnership between parents and staff, home and school.

  3. To organise functions of a social nature.


In the past funds have been raised for a variety of projects including: interactive whiteboards and projectors, digital cameras, TV/videos, playground equipment and most recently our trim trail.

The PTA also support the school by funding theatre groups, science show, and musical events in school.

Events held throughout the year include: Summer and Christmas Fairs, fashion shows and discos.

The current Chair of the Committee is Geraint Osborn who can be contacted through school.

Remember to like the PTA facebook page to keep informed of all events and activities, or look on the noticeboard in the main playground.

 

Additional funds are raised through www.easyfundraising.org.uk

Use this website to shop online at stores such as Amazon, M&S, Boots, Argos and other major retailers. Once registered, every time you use it the school gets a donation. So for very little effort the children will benefit.

Funds are also raised through the purchase of labels for naming school uniform. Check out this link to raise funds

If you are able to volunteer to help with any PTA activities and events, please contact us.  Help is always needed, and everyone is most welcome.

Can you double our money? Match giving, or match funding, is a simple way of maximising the fundraising efforts of PTA events. Some companies offer matched funding by pledging a sum of money relating to the amount their employee has raised  or donated to the charity of their choice (the school PTA is a registered charity). Some companies will also pledge time and resources instead of money, so enabling their employees to support a cause during their working week, or offering a tangible service such as the opportunity to print posters, programmes, newsletters and so on. If you are able to help in any of these ways please get in touch.

Thank you to the following companies for their generous support of events organised by the PTA.
