All families of pupils at our school are members of the PTA. We run regular fundraising and social events for the whole school community including children's discos, quiz nights, the summer fair and much more. We are registered as a charity, and our registration number is 1146524.
The PTA funds the "extras". Things that enhance the children's education that aren't covered by the day to day budget. Over recent years, the PTA has been pleased to fund iPads, new digital cameras, stage lighting, the adventure playground and one of the new minibuses!
We are currently working with the school to provide funding for more outside activity equipment, and our fundraising activities this year are primarily to help with this, although we hope to provide smaller projects when the need arises.
We can't do this without the support of our members. We hold committee meetings (which everyone is welcome to attend) once a month(ish) in one of the village pubs, and we try to keep things informal and fun. If you could help out in anyway, or have any ideas for fundraising, or where we could spend funds, we would be delighted to hear from you - either come along to our next meeting, or leave us a message at the school office.
