Welcome to the PTA!
The PTA was set up to provide additional fund raising to help buy things for our children that the school can’t obtain on their budget. Things that we have funded recently include:
Typical events include evenings for the grown-ups, the Christmas fair, cake stalls, coffee mornings, and the summer Donkey Derby. Some events are repeated each year, but we also try to introduce variety of new or ad hoc activities designed for children, adults or entire families.
The PTA depends on the goodwill and support of parents, and realises that often time is limited. We operate in a flexible way, and appreciate all time, contacts, experience, skills, ideas, offers and knowledge as they are available – so we hope you will feel able to get involved at any time and in any way you can.
So, in order to keep up the fund raising momentum, we need your help. There are a number of different ways that you can help too – even a small amount of time makes a difference each year. Please read the Roles and Responsibilities page to see what you think you could help with, either now or in the future. If you see yourself as a future treasurer, for example, please let us know as soon as possible and you can shadow the role to see what it entails (the longer the handover, the easier the role will be). Or, if you have very little spare time, you can still help just by attending events, buying raffle tickets, baking cakes, donating raffle prizes…. the list is endless!
