What is the PTA?
The Parent Teacher Association is an open community of parents volunteers working alongside the school and its staff to benefit the school and ensure the best educational experience for all its pupils.
How does the PTA benefit the school?
Parents and carers have a big impact on how much their child makes progress at school. Taking an active role in your PTA is one of the ways you can make a difference and get involved:
Our events throughout the academic year raise money to helped support school trips, performances and workshops in school, extra reading books and a new PA system.
We have also helped secure a grant from the National Lottery's Awards for £9999.00 to help transform the stage area into a multi-functional space providing a much needed quiet area to support the children's learning.
Our Future Events:
Our PTA takes pride in ensuring the children have fun raising money for school. We try to make events affordable for parents and enjoyable for everyone.
Saturday 13th May 2023 - May Summer Fair 12pm - 2pm.
Next PTA Meeting - Monday 12th June 2023 3:30pm to be held in school.

May Fair 2022

Stalls; games; chocolate tombola; BBQ and some great entertainment from The Britannia Coconut Dancers; 2nd Rossendale Scout Group; Rossendale Drum Majorettes; Fusion Dance and Fitness and the Adventurous Alpacas. Even the sun came out to join us and the rain stayed away. Than you to everyone who supported us and our wonderful volunteers
