Welcome to our brand new PTA Page
PTAs are in fact a great way to help make a positive impact in your child’s school, be that through pushing for new initiatives or helping to improve the communication between home and school.
The PTA has two core roles:
• To raise funds using a range of fundraising events to purchase items that the school would otherwise be unable to provide.
• To help develop and sustain positive relationships between all parents and between parents and teachers. We do this with social events and a whole variety of consultation opportunities.
By going along to the meetings you’re acting as a representative for the rest of the parents who may not be able to attend but still have concerns and ideas they need communicated. Not only this, but attending these meetings is a great opportunity to meet new people and make new friends.
Stay informed about what is going on in school
By attending your school’s PTA meetings you’ll be kept in the loop about what’s going on in the school first-hand as opposed to hearing it through playground Chinese Whispers. Not only this, but you’ll be able to voice your opinions on what new initiatives the school may be bringing in and also use this as a forum to voice any concerns or ideas you may have.
Make a positive impact in your child’s education
Attending events outside of your home and work life is a great example to set for your child. They will understand the importance of making commitments and following them through, but also the importance of donating their free time to worthwhile causes. Not only this, but issues discussed within these meetings regarding the school have a direct impact on your child’s education and it is important that you get to have a say in these matters.
You can choose how involved you are
Being a part of our school PTA isn’t like signing a contract, you’re not expected to attend every single meeting, you can be as involved as much as you like. We know how busy and valuable your time is and understand that committing to every meeting is a hard task. Attending once or twice a year and volunteering at fundraising events is more than enough, and will make a positive impact.
Have a say in where money raised is spent
Being an active member of our PTA means, you have a part to play in where money raised is spent. The great thing is that through fundraising, brainstorming you can provide our school and its pupils with resources, and opportunities that we may not have otherwise been able to afford. These can include funding school trips, providing IT equipment that is needed or revamping areas of the playground. Whatever it is, you will help to make a difference to your child’s and other pupils.
