Parent Teacher Association

We have a vibrant and very supportive group of parents who work hard to ensure we have a proactive Parent and Teachers Association. The Association was formed a number of years ago to provide a further link between home and school and strengthen and develop relationships between all concerned. All families are automatic members of this association and we welcome grandparents who offer us so much.

Throughout the school year the PTA organises a number of functions to enable us all to mix socially and to raise very necessary funds for essential resources which enhance the school curriculum.

A PTA email account is available should you need to contact us [email protected]

Where we meet

All members of the school and parish community are actively encouraged to attend our PTA meetings.

Annual General Meeting

Our Annual General Meeting (AGM) takes place at the start of each academic year.

Minutes of the meetings and accounts are attached below and are available to view at the school office.

Committee

We have a growing and vibrant Parent & Teachers Association and all parents and extended family members are most welcome to all meetings and events.

This year, as a result of several committee members stepping down, we have not got officially nominated committee members but we hope to train new recruits so they feel more comfortable in role for next year.  School leadership, Sarah Langstaff and former Chair, Rachael Arnold, will lead on communications for our annual events this year.

At our AGM in September 2022 we hope to appoint new committee members to the PTA.

Fundraising

The PTA regularly donates to the school, supporting school functions such as the Christmas Fair, the Easter Egg raffle, the First Holy Communion and the Summer Family Fun Night.

Over the last few years, they have given significant monetary contributions, including:

-covering part of the costs for trips for this academic year

-money for classes to use to purchase useful classroom and playtime resources

-buying new books for the new School Library and new books so that each class has a dedicated author

-money to support the ‘Grumpy Gardeners’ upkeep of school grounds

-significant contributions to subsidise our annual pantomime trip

-purchasing of liturgical altar cloths for classroom collective worship

-the purchase of the new school football kit

-purchasing of new digital video recording system and class ipads

Volunteers

We are extremely grateful for our regular parental and parish volunteers who come to school to listen to readers and support in class.

If you or a family member are able to offer support to school we would welcome you to contact the school office, Mr Conway or Miss Brady. Class teachers would really appreciate reading support, 2-3pm on one day per week.
