Parent Teachers Association


The aim of the Parent Teachers Association (PTA) is to help raise funds to provide educational and play equipment for the children. We do this by organising a variety of fundraising events including fetes, discos and raffles. The PTA is a registered charity and has an elected committee, who with the help of all the other parents within the school, organise these events.

We provide social events for parents only, such as Quiz Nights, as well as children only events, such as Year Group Discos. We have two main fundraising events every year which are the Christmas Bazaar and our Summer Fayre, these two events include the whole school and are great fun.

The money raised by these events helps to purchase items such as the interactive white boards, the sound system for the hall, the tyre park, new library furniture and many more additional items, which the school would not normally be able to purchase.

All parents automatically become members of the PTA when their children join the school, however if you would like to take a more active role, please download our 'friends' letter' below.

We are always very grateful for any help offered as ‘many hands make light work'. Any suggestions for future events are also much appreciated.

The Elected Officers for 2023/24 are:

Chair  - Kelly Garner

Secretary – Sam Wood

Treasurer – Cathy Fisher





Corporate Matched Funding

Do you work for a company? If so, you could be eligible to receive matched funding from your company for your contribution to the PTA. Often, companies will match money raised by individuals who raise funds for a charity as part of voluntary work. This is a vital way in which your PTA raises funds to enable us to fulfil our aim of providing educational and play opportunities for the school. The terms of the funding are specific to the company you work for, so if you think you would be eligible then the first step would be to contact your HR department directly for more information.

Subsequently, please email to let us know what documentation you need us to provide you with.
