Par­ents Teach­ers Asso­ci­a­tion (PTA)

Are you new to the area and want to make friends?

Is this your first child in school and you would like to meet other parents?

Do you want to get involved with help­ing your children?

Hav­ing a PTA is good for your chil­dren, the school and for parents.

We all want our chil­dren to have a good edu­ca­tion and the PTA aims to help with this by pro­vid­ing addi­tional items that can­not be afforded within the nor­mal school budget.

In its time the PTA has raised thou­sands of pounds, which have been spent on improv­ing equip­ment and resources to enhance the chil­drens’ edu­ca­tion and facil­i­ties at the school in gen­eral. Past acqui­si­tions include the adven­ture play­ground, com­put­ers, benches, art equip­ment and book bags (each year).

As well as rais­ing funds we aim to organ­ise events that can enrich the life of the school. Pre­vi­ous events include Party in the Play­ground, Christ­mas Fayre, Richmond’s Got Tal­ent, fash­ion shows and school discos.

Work­ing with the PTA can be good fun and be a great oppor­tu­nity to get to know other par­ents. Any par­ent, teacher or friend can get involved even if you only have a small amount of time avail­able. You can decide whether you want to get involved on the PTA com­mit­tee, organ­ise a one-off event or put your name donw to be an occa­sional helper on the day of an event.

The more peo­ple that are involved the more events we can organ­ise. We cur­rently need lots more par­ents to join in so that we can run a wider vari­ety of events. If you think you might be inter­ested then please con­tact the office, or Rebecca Man­ning (Nur­ture Group) at school. We look for­ward to hear­ing from you!
