We exist to support the school in raising additional funds to support the education of our children. Over the years, the PTA has paid for things like the astroturf pitch, interactive white boards and iPads, as well as regular magazine subscriptions. Currently, we are raising money to refurbish the school library.
Equally importantly, we plan and arrange events and activities for pupils, parents and friends of the school to enjoy.
All parents are automatically members of the PTA, and are invited to attend the PTA meetings, or to get involved in any way you can. We know that everyone has different commitments and time pressures, and there are many ways you can help us to support our school.
