Parent Teacher Association

PTA stands for Parent Teacher Association, parents of our pupils work together with teachers to volunteer in classes, raise money for school supplies, and generally support our efforts.

Our Purpose:

  • Fundraising to enhance educational resourcing, to include approaching business;
  • Running events for pupils and parents, providing an opportunity for parents to meet and get to know each other, embrace our cultural diversity and have fun eg. Diwali, Eid, Christmas etc;
  • To identify where we have skills to support the school with running it’s activities eg. homework clubs, school trips, afterschool clubs and other special events;
  • Empowering parents, teachers and pupils to feel part of the wider school community so that collectively we can make a difference.

Our PTA raised over £10,000 in 2018 which was donated to our new school library.

The PTA runs a variety of fundraising events throughout the year including our annual Christmas and Summer Fair. We run mufti days, winter discos and bake sales to enable us to raise funds to run our fairs and generate further income for the PTA.
