PTA - What Has The Money Raised Been Used For?
We are always grateful to everyone who supports a fundraising event, either by helping or attending (or both!) The money the PTA raises really does make a difference to the school.
Please click here to read about how the PTA funds have been raised and managed.
In previous years, the PTA has funded the side covers for YR’s outdoor play area to protect the children from wind, rain and sun, allowing them to go out whatever the weather.
Subsidising School Trips
Coaches for school trips are often subsidised by the PTA, enabling children to visit a wide variety of places such as the Slimbridge Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust and @Bristol at a more reasonable cost to parents.
The PTA has funded resources to help with the school’s Outdoor School programme such as a welly rack for YR, waterproof trousers for Y2, garden kneelers and has also given money towards developing the Woodland area in school.
The PTA part funded a large number of new fiction and information books for the school library, enhancing the children’s choice of up-to-date reading material.
Each year the Year 5 children undertake cycle training to ensure their bikes are roadworthy and they are competent and safe cyclists. Last year, the PTA funded this training.
The PTA regularly funds a visit from the Daylight Theatre Company who entertain the children with a Christmas performance. The PTA also provides a Christmas party lunch for juniors, along with presents from Father Christmas for all the children.
