Being part of the PTA means you can give something back to school. From a one-off cake bake, to volunteering your time at an event or to organise one, coming to meetings or even joining the committee. Your help is always welcome, no matter how much, or how little you can do.

The meetings are informal on the 3rd Monday of every month during term-time, with a few mums and dads, and staff representatives.  We discuss what fundraising activities we can do next and how to best allocate the money raised in the interests of the children, so it's a good opportunity to have your say!
