About the PTA
What is a PTA?
Most Schools have a PTA, which is an organisation between parents and staff. Its role is to encourage a closer link between home and school. We are best known for our fundraising work.
How is the PTA organised?
We hold our Annual General Meeting (AGM) at the start of the school year.
At this meeting a committee is elected to run the PTA – A Chair, Vice Chair, Treasurer and Secretary.
The PTA usually meet once a term (If needed) and set up smaller working groups to organise individual events.
How is the money spent?
Funds raised by the PTA are intended to provide ‘extras’, not already provided by the schools main income, and often ‘fun things’ to enhance the children’s learning.
The PTA committee and the school Head Teacher work together to decide how to spend the funds raised by the PTA each year. Common items include computers, playground equipment, coach trips/fees, and smaller purchases such as presents for Father Christmas to distribute.
How can I be involved in my PTA?
There are many different ways you can help with the PTA, whether you have lots of time to offer or not. Some things can be time consuming, although also rewarding. If you cannot commit to a big job, look out for things you can do less frequently such as running a stall at the Summer Fair or baking a cake for the Bake Sale. You can always support the PTA by simply attending a meeting and sharing any ideas you have.
