Parent Teacher Association

The Parent Teacher Association is a committee of parents and staff, which supports the work of the school by providing:

  • activities which will foster and develop relationships between staff, parents, governors and others associated with the school
  • and supporting educational and social activities for children in order to enrich and extend the opportunities which can be made available
  • funds for a range of additional resources

The committee meets once every half term. We have some formal positions – Chair, Secretary and Treasurer – as well as any other interested parents.

The current committee is:

 

Chair: Kaitlin Krull Dominiak
Treasurer: Katrina Thornley
Secretary: Liz Llewellyn
Committee Members: Kerry Walpole
Jeni Prettyman
Alex Vecchio
June Stevenson
Shizuka Pye
Raj Banerjee
Fleur McLennan
Rox Kindersley

All the meetings are open to any parent who wants to attend. We re-elect the PTA committee each autumn, and are always interested in recruiting new members. It is a great way for parents to get involved in the school in a very positive way, as well as being very sociable. Information can be obtained from any of the committee members.

Fundraising events we organise include:

  • Summer fair on Jesus Green
  • Cake sales
  • Ice lolly sales after-school in the summer
  • Quiz night
  • Advent and Easter teas with craft activities, raffles and sales

Non-profit events we organise include:

  • Welcome tea for new parents during the Autumn term
  • Supporting school sports day by providing refreshments for the children
