Parent Teacher Association
What is a Parent Teacher Association (PTA)?
Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is an organisation of parents and staff. Its role is to encourage closer links between home and school. PTAs are best known for their fundraising work, but they have a useful social function too. Fundraising events provide an opportunity for parents, staff and pupils to get together.
How is the PTA organised?
At most schools all parents/carers and teachers are automatically members of the PTA.
Most PTAs hold their annual general meeting. At this meeting a committee is elected to run the PTA – usually consisting of a chair, a vice-chair, a treasurer, a secretary and ordinary committee members. These ordinary members include at least one, and often two, parents from each class as 'class reps'. Their job is to pass on information from the PTA to other parents in their child’s class.
If you are interested in joining our school PTA and/or would like to play a role on the committee please read the attachments below.
The next PTA meeting is on the 15th January.
