Ways To Get Involved


Ways to get involved


There are a variety of ways you can get involved with the PTA.


  • Fundraising events are organized and run by parent/caregiver and child volunteers. We would love it if you volunteer to organize an event, to help run a stall during the event or help collect and contribute prizes for games and raffles.


  • Do you have a skill that you can volunteer? We have had a children’s book writer do workshops, a psychotherapist give an assembly on how to look after our mental health, a gardener look after the school’s plants, computer programmers run a Code Club after school. If you can spare some time, please contact the Headteacher.


  • Do you have some time that you can volunteer to support a child in their learning? Over the past years, we have had parents volunteering their time once or twice a week to support children on a one to one basis to develop children’s maths and reading skills.


  • Not all volunteering comes in the form of giving your time. If you can spare a few pounds, how about setting up a direct debit donation via Virgin Money Giving or donate through Easyfundraising when you shop at your favourite retailers.


Donation of Boxes

We need your help. Every year we have to replace a number of our learning resources for topic, science etc. This is mainly due to the boxes they are kept in are weak and break or because the box has been a make do and is not suitable. Would any of you be able to either buy them (amazon do them) and get them delivered to the school, or donate and we will purchase them. The Really Useful Box is sturdy and depending on size (need a variety of 84l, 64l and 48l) they are approximately £14-16. Please see the links to Amazon where they can be purchased. Your help is much appreciated!
