How Your Support Helps

Scooter & bike parking bays funded by the PTA

Once money is raised from events the funds are banked straight away. It is at our PTA Committee Meetings, that the decisions on how to spend the money are agreed.

Usually, Mrs Taylor our Head Teacher will have a 'shopping list' of items that the school would like to purchase. Sometimes this will be as a result of the children asking for something, as in the new playground equipment. At other times it will be for resources to improve a particular area of the curriculum or school environment. In the main the PTA funds are for the 'extras' not provided by the school budget, that make our children's learning experiences so much more fulfilling and exciting.

We always endeavour to spend our funds in ways that will benefit all our children across all areas of the school and curriculum. Many of the resources purchased have a direct link to the School Improvement Plan.

The money we raise is usually spent fairly quickly. That way, you can be sure that in supporting our school, your child/ren will feel the benefit, along with everybody else.

Of course there have been times when we have been fundraising for a large project. In the past, we have supported the following special projects: the ICT Suite, Outside quiet area and the Library. However, whilst saving for these, we have still managed to find funds for smaller items thanks to the generous and continued support of our parents.
