Parent Teacher Association
Welcome to our PTA page
Here at Barlaston First School we have a very active PTA to which all parents and grandparents are welcome to attend.
We vary the days and times of our meeting, enabling parents to attend as often as they are able, though we are fully aware that child care arrangements or work may be obstacles in this matter.
We hold many fund raising events over the year including school discos, bingo nights, film nights, Christmas fayre and a large summer fayre to name but a few events.
The money is spent on the children we have in school now, not saved up for a large project. We always communicate with the parents as to our spending of the money, as it is important for you to see where your money is being used.
Below are some of the ways we have spent PTA money in the past:
Purchase of laptops
Payment for the whole school to attend the New Vic theatre
Payment of coaches for different school visits
Payment for extracurricular support to be brought into school, eg African drummer/ story teller
Gardening equipment.......and the list goes on!
If you are a parent or grandparent at the school and would like to get involved with fundraising for the children, please keep looking on our website for the date of our next meeting. Thank you, as ever for your continued support, it is greatly appreciated.
