Parent volunteers can make a vital and marked difference to their child’s school and our Parent Teacher Association (PTA) aims to do just that at the Gerrards Cross Church of England School.
We are an active group of dedicated parent and carer volunteers who run a number of successful fundraising events throughout the academic year.
The PTA finance equipment and events the school may not otherwise be able to afford and look to improve resources and therefore our children’s experience of their education. We also aim to build a sense of community for parents, carers and children through regular fun social activities.
Highlights of the year include a Christmas Fair complete with secret present room and Santa’s grotto; a summer Party in the Playground with games, stalls and a talent show; a Quiz & Curry Night and the Summer Ball. Everyone gets involved and it’s great fun as well as raising much appreciated funds.
Recently the PTA has contributed to brand new bike and scooter sheds for the school, AstroTurf on the KS1 playground, air conditioning for the ICT suite and Year 6 classrooms, library books, Science & Arts weeks, KS1 Christmas Party and KS2 Disco, a new set of iPads as well as ergonomically designed chairs for all classrooms.
Fundraising success is only made possible by the involvement of parents and we are always on the lookout for new volunteers who are willing to dedicate some of their time in helping us achieve this.
Events are always advertised on Parentmail and you can get in touch with the PTA at firstname.lastname@example.org
