This information has been compiled by our Friends and Parent Teacher Association (FPTA) especially for you, as a new family joining our school community. We realise it can be strange and a little nerve-wracking starting at a new school and there always seems to be so many questions to ask. This information aims to provide you with information about our FPTA which forms a major part of school life.
If you have any questions that remain unanswered, please contact one of the committee members, your class teacher or class representative.
Why do we have a PTA?
We are fortunate at our school to have a PTA that is and has been an integral part of the school community since 1986, in its time the PTA has raised thousands of pounds, (£18,200 last academic year!) which has been spent on equipment and resources to enhance our children’s education experience and the school’s facilities.
Our PTA is about much more than simply fundraising. The PTA exists to provide closer links between home and school and it is an excellent way to bring staff, parents and friends together socially in support of the school, working towards a common goal. It is fun too – just ask any of the Committee members or PTA helpers. Obviously, as in any organisation, we have experienced some challenges but with the continued support of parents and staff, our PTA has always succeeded in its efforts.
All parents and members of the school community are encouraged to get involved, even if they only have a small amount of time available. All families are automatically members of the PTA when their child joins our school.
The PTA is extremely conscious of the ethos and diversity of our school, and we try very hard when organising and planning events to respect this. Not all of our events are run as fundraisers. Our children’s disco, talent night and Summer Fun Day are run with the aim of giving the children a good time and as a way of thanking families for their continued support for the PTA.
We look forward to welcoming you.
