Who are we and what do we do?
The All Saints PTA is a group of parents and teachers who meet to organise fundraising and social events to benefit the school and the children. A lot of the events organised are for fun and not specifically to raise money. We organise the school Summer and Christmas Fairs, Film Nights, Family Discos and Quiz Nights, as well as the annual Year 6 SATs Breakfast Club and Leavers' BBQ.
What it involves for you
We usually meet every couple of months and have an annual general meeting once a year in September. We are always looking for new members to help organise different events as parents leave the group as their children move on to secondary school. If you feel that you have not got the time to become a member then we would welcome any help that you could give at our events, e.g. helping to run a stall at the Summer or Christmas Fair. This is a great opportunity for you to build friendships with other parents who you will know for many years.
Where the money goes
The money that is raised is usually spent quickly in ways that will benefit all the children. The teaching staff will discuss what they think needs to be purchased and, at the PTA meetings, will request funding for, e.g. playground equipment, school trophies etc. The money is used to pay for 'extras' not covered by the school budget - extras that help to make the children's learning experiences more fulfilling and exciting, such as historical workshops and pantomimes.
