Meet the PTA

Welcome to the PTA section of our website.

 

Our PTA is about much more than simply fundraising. The PTA exists to provide closer links between home and school and it is an excellent way to bring parents, staff and other supporters together socially in support of the school, working towards a common goal.

 

PTA remit:

The object of the Association (the Objects) is to advance the education of pupils in the school in particular by:

  • Developing effective relationships between the staff, parents and others associated with the school;
  • Engaging in activities or providing facilities or equipment which support the school and advance the education of the pupils.
