Welcome to our PTA page
Here at Barlaston First School we have a very active PTA, to which all parents, grandparents, aunties, uncles, carers and friends are welcome to attend.
Meetings usually take place once a month. These are generally on Wednesday evenings, at 7pm and take place at school.
We hold many fund raising events over the year including school discos, film nights, chocolate bingos, a hugely popular Christmas fayre and a large summer fayre, as well as many more.
The money raised from these events is then spent on the children, directly helping their learning and school environment. 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:
Maths equipment for classroom use;
Purchase of iPads;
Payment for the whole school to attend the New Vic theatre;
Payment of coaches for different school visits;
Purchase of waterproofs to help children with outdoor learning;
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, grandparent, aunty, uncle, carer or family friend 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.
School Disco, Friday 6th July 2018.
A fantastic disco, with a super playlist from deputy DJ, Mrs Broome! Lots of people were there, as we said goodbye to the amazing year 4s. A lot of refreshments were sold and many grown-ups were out on the dancefloor. Everyone had a great time! We raised a lot of money so thank you to everyone who came and supported the school!! Also, a big thanks to all of the helpers, as these events cannot happen without people being willing to give up their time. A great event to end our school year.
