Parents & Teachers Association – News and Events
Inviting ALL Parents and Carers
My name is Belinda Davies and I am the Chair of All Saints PTA. The PTA is a group of parents and teachers just like you, who give up some of their time to organise and support school events for our children. Without this support we would not be able to have the Christmas Bazaar, EYFS Christmas Party and entertainer, Junior Discos, Family Portrait Shoot, Easter event or Summer fete & BBQ. Everyone is welcome to our meetings at which we have some fun as well as attending to PTA business!
Over the last 4 years, the PTA has raised in excess of £35,000 which has enabled us to purchase luxury items outside of the school budget.
Following on from the London Olympics in 2012, we decided to replace the gymnasium equipment inside the school hall which had been there since the 70s!
In 2014 we purchased 30 iPads and charging units. The iPads are used by all of the year groups during lessons to enhance their learning experience.
We have also bought wooden shop fronts/role play areas for the early years classrooms which encourages imaginative play.
The PTA helped with the renovation and expansion of the wildlife garden and will continue to support the redevelopment of the outdoor learning area that will benefit every child.
We are a very active PTA of mums, dads and teachers and always welcome newcomers to our termly meetings. We aim to run at least one fundraising event each term and I am always open to suggestions and new ideas so please feel free to come along to one of our meetings or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
We are on Facebook ‘All Saints PTA’ and advertise all of our events, meetings as well as the latest PTA news on our page.
Another fundraising initiative we have signed up with is www.easyfundraising.org.uk
If you shop online, please consider registering at the easyfundraising website and supporting All Saints’ Primary School. We have already raised over £350 with just around 40 parents using the system.
It is very simple and free, and you can use all your normal retailers, there really are no catches. To help us, just go to the website, sign up, register your support for All Saints’ Primary School, and then remember to click through to your normal websites from the easyfundraising website when buying. Keep shopping and see if you can climb up the Top Fundraisers scoreboard!!!
