New Term – start of PTA

Some parents are setting up a steering group at the moment so that we can start a PTA in September (we don’t have one at the moment). So now is a great time to get involved.

Briefly these are some of the main things we’d like to do:

  • Raise money for something specific we agree for the school. This might be a piece of play equipment, garden or play area upgrades, or anything else we agree on.
  • Contribute to the school community. We would hold social events for parents and/or children that would also raise money. Getting to know other parents and teachers in an informal way is great for everyone.
  • Put together a knowledge base of parents and carers’ skills, languages, and interests; so that we can contribute to the school in an organised way.

As is usual every parent will be a member of the PTA automatically – and be informed of events via the school. We welcome any involvement, and we will be organizing an AGM in September, so that we can agree our aims, and elect a committee. If you want to be involved you can contribute by:

  • Being a committee member – with a title (secretary, etc) or as an ordinary committee member. This means attending meetings a few times a term. Perhaps meetings at varied times may help make this easy for a variety of parents to attend – no need to come to them all.
  •  Helping out at events.
  •  Letting us know what your talents are. We’d like to make a ‘knowledge base’ of parents’ skills and interests. If you have a special skill of any kind we’d like to hear from you: this might be your line of work, language, cooking specialities, hobbies, or indeed your own history.

Please do sign up to our email list, or email us on to be kept up with news.
