PTA


The PTA Committee is made up of a number of key roles. The Committee leads the PTA and co-ordinates fundraising events.

Committee roles are allocated at the Annual General Meeting. Please note that in some cases there may be an element of flexibility within a role to suit an individual.

Your new PTA members for the coming academic year are:

Alison Colbridge - Chair
Lindsey Cuff - Vice Chair
Danielle O’Gara - Treasurer
Sarah Smith - Secretary


The PTA Committee is supported by the wider team of PTA members. Members contribute to monthly meetings, form sub teams to plan events and help out regularly. Our members are invaluable – without them our fairs, discos, cake sales and other events simply wouldn't happen.

PTA Pumpkin PartyFriday 26th October We hope you have all received the flyer regarding the FREE ENTRY Pumpkin Disco. KS1 – 3:30 – 4:30 KS2 – 4:45 – 6:00 Fancy dress is optional for KS2, although we will be running a prize for the best fancy dress!

Christmas FayreFriday 30th November 5:00 – 7:30 Please make sure you have the date in your diary. We have lots of activities planned and the raffle prizes are looking amazing! More details to follow. To support the fayre and listening to parent feedback, we will still be running dress down days but these will be for a £1 donation rather than asking you to provide donations of smellies, drinks etc. with the exception of Friday 30th November when we would still really appreciate your homemade cakes and cookies to support the event. The dates have been agreed as: Friday 9th November bring a £1 Friday 16th November bring a £1 Friday 30th November homemade cake or bring a £1. If you would like to get involved please see a member of the PTA, or come along to the meeting.

Match Funding We have attached a letter that we have received from one of the PTA support organisations we use. It provides background into matched funding, if you work for an organisation that has a match funding policy, any money we raise at an event could be matched by your employer. Companies may match the fundraising total for an event, or for the stall that their employee is working on. If this is something you think your employer supports and you would be happy to make a request for match funding please contact a member of the PTA, or use the ask the chair email address below. PTA Meeting Next Meeting Thursday 18th October. In school 3:15 / 3:20 start time. It would be great to see as many people as possible. Focus of the meeting will be final preparation for the pumpkin disco and Christmas Fayre planning. Additional placeholder dates for the next PTA meetings are: week commencing: 5th, 12th, 19th, 26th November, dates, times and locations will be confirmed.
