We would like to welcome you all to your PTA. Without your help and generosity many things could not be afforded in our Outstanding school.
6 Reasons why your PTA really matters
1. For the kids
Being active in the PTA not only improves your child's school but makes you an excellent role model. Research confirms what we've always known; when children see us involved in their school and learning, it encourages them to do their best.
2. It builds trust
Becoming part of the PTA is a great way to get to know other parents and teachers while gaining an insight into the workings of the school. With parents and teachers striving towards the same goals , the parent group is instrumental in making a real difference in the school life of all children.
3. It raises welcome funds
Whether it's creating an outdoor classroom, arranging a visit from a local author or funding the visit to the Pantomime the funds raised from your activities impact massively on the opportunities and experiences of all the children in school.
4. It gives you a voice
Many PTAs already act as a consultative group for the school leaders and governors. So whether it's deciding on where PTA funds are spent or getting parent views on wraparound care, you can make sure parents have a voice in how your school operates.
5. It forges connections beyond the school gates
PTAs are brilliant for building relationships with the local community, from events, sponsorships from local businesses and mentions in local press.
6. Its good for you!
Every parent has plenty to offer a PTA and whether it's being on the committee, helping out at events or organising meetings your talents will be put to good use. As well as being enjoyable and satisfying, you can build your confidence and learn new skills too.
