What do we do?
St John’s School PTA (Parent & Teachers Association) is a registered charity (no.1028150) run by parents and teachers that fundraises throughout the school year enabling the school to purchase required resources and provides funding for extracurricular activities that help make your child’s school a fun and exciting one.
We usually meet up in the school at 6.30pm as and when needed depending on activities being organised and over a coffee we discuss/organise forthcoming events. If you have a child in the school you are automatically a member of the PTA; it is up to you if you become an active member!
So, what do we fund?
Every year we continue to fund:
£100 per class towards the coach for educational day trips out (helping to keep the cost down to parents)
£500 towards the school’s Text2Parents system per year
£40 per class for Christmas craft activities
A Christmas selection box for every child within the school
End of year personalised leavers mugs
End of year 100% attenders gifts
Engraving/purchasing of medal/trophies for the Pride of St John’s Awards Ceremony
Anti-Bullying Workshop for all
How do we raise the funds?
We hold 3 main events throughout the school year:
We also have an annual St John’s School calendar (available to purchase November/December time) where each child appears on their birthday month along with those all-important term dates and INSET days.
Plus fun events for the children at the end of each term such as bingo or a fun disco (usually £1 or £2 entry depending on the event).
We are always open to new ideas and would love to see you become an active member of St John’s PTA. Meeting dates are usually sent out via text to all parents. If you would like more information about the PTA and how to be involved, please leave your details in the school office and somebody will get in touch.
