PARENT TEACHER ASSOCIATION (PTA)

The PTA encourages closer links between school and home through events that raise all-important funds for school. 

 

Every year your support enables the PTA to provide:

  • A book bag for all Reception children as they begin their learning journey (from Sep 2023)

  • An exciting ice cream van visit for the whole school, celebrating the successful end of each school year

  • The Year 6 leavers event and photo books, creating magical memories of pupils’ time at Great Preston. 

 

Additionally, the PTA contributes to one special project each year. This has previously included the new bike shed and the full refurbishment of the school library. 

A very big thank you to all who have supported the school by donating time and money to the preparation, running or attending of PTA events.

PTA meetings happen once a month, or more as we approach big events, but you can attend as many or as few meetings as you like.


At these warm and welcoming meetings the PTA turn great ideas into reality (and there’s usually chocolate!).


You can join any meeting, without notice, by arriving at the school office on the date/time advertised on Class Dojo. 


Struggling to attend? We would like to make it easier for parents and carers to join PTA meetings.  Let us know how via admin@greatprestonprimary.co.uk

Star Baker? Bob the Builder? Green fingers? Crafty creative? Or simply enthusiastic and willing to muck in? 


The PTA needs different skills at different times of the year, helping out in school or working on small projects at home. 


Leave your contact details at the school office, or email them to admin@greatprestonprimary.co.uk, and a member of the PTA will be in touch.

We are particularly interested to hear from companies who may be able to support school by donating raffle prizes, funds or providing volunteers to lend a hand at events.


Do you know or work with/for a company who may be able to help?  We will work closely with you to ensure supporting the PTA is a rewarding experience for all. 


Want to talk more about this?  Email your details to admin@greatprestonprimary.co.uk and a member of the PTA will be in touch.
