AGM & New Committee

At the recent PTA AGM, it was announced that Guy Simmonds was going to take a step back from his PTA role after a very successful 10 years as the PTA chair. I would like to thank Guy on behalf of the school (including those past and present) for the PTA's tremendous achievements during his tenure, with 100K raised for the school during this time. Quizzes, Rags 2 Riches, Fetes, Discos, Uniform sales, Film Evenings and many other fun social events have also added extra value to the school community through the enjoyment of bringing all stakeholders together.

The money which the PTA have raised has been used for many resources and activities over the years. A few notable examples are: Smart screens in classes, play equipment, lap tops, ICT equipment, software licences, books, stationary, resources for Reception and my favourite - the running track around the school field.

With school budgets largely supporting staffing costs and set expenditures in many areas there really isn’t much wrig-gle room to save and spend on the items I have listed above. To give some context the annual budget for Geography resources ranges between £150 and £250 in a normal year.

Therefore, the money raised by the PTA is essential in assisting us to improve the provision of education for all chil-dren.

If you could help, even just a little - especially as a committee member - we would be delighted to welcome you on board. As families leave the school at the end of Year 6 there is always a need to recruit new volunteers and of course, new ideas are also appreciated.

With the support of parents, careers and staff we hope to be able to host a range of FUNdraising events this school year.

Our PTA's aims are to:

  • Raise funds to help the school provide resources for pupils.
  • Bring teachers, pupils and parents together to have fun times.
  • Organise events that inspire a wider sense of inclusion and community.
  • Meet other parents, enhance social networks and have fun.

FUNdraising Ideas

As we begin to plan activities, we'd love to hear from you if you have any FUNdraising ideas you'd like provide.
