What does the PTA do?
The PTA is a registered charity run by a committee (Charity number: 1147450) - Kirstin Lane is the chair, Michelle Wilson is the vice chair, Chris Stevenson is the secretary and Alka Bisht is the treasurer. But the PTA is really everyone who is a parent or guardian of a child at the school, or a member of the school staff. There are opportunities for everyone to get involved and every contribution helps whether it’s leading a big project or taking five minutes to help tidy up after an event.
We raise money for the school and we run events for the children and we aim to combine those two things wherever possible. Things have been a bit different over the last couple of years with all the restrictions in place but things are slowly getting back to normal and we usually have several events each term.
Our regular events include an annual sponsored event, discos, ice cream Fridays during the warmer weather, Easter Egg Bingo and Bunny Hunts, a summer fair and Christmas fun. This year for the first time we’ve been selling tickets to events like the Round Table fireworks display, certain Assembly Halls’ shows and Legoland – ideal for a class outing or just a day with family, which have been very popular. We also have regular pre-loved uniform sales.
