Kingsley Parent-Teacher Association (PTA)
What is the Kingsley Parent Teacher Association?
In September 2016 Kingsley Primary decided to relaunch the school Parent Teacher Association (PTA). When parents and the school are able to work together then great things can be achieved. It is an organisation formed of parents and school staff members with the main purpose to build strong links between home and school. They are usually best known for their fundraising work, however this is secondary to parents, staff and pupils having the opportunity to get together.
What are its current goals?
At this early stage the initial members have set these goals for the PTA.
- Raise money to improve the school.
- Build strong community links.
- Bring in ALL parents.
- Develop opportunities for fun and enjoyment outside the classroom
- Sports Day
- Cake Sales
- Curriculum Enrichment Trips
- Develop Parental Engagement with the school so all parents feel apart and want to be apart of this school.
- To get established, officially, as an organisation by April 2017.
How is money raised?
Money is raised through the organisation of fun activities which then will develop the business links with our local community. Even develop entrepreneurship in parents and children.
- Sports Day
- Cake Sales
We have already organised a number of cake sales where we doubled our money and we are
had a very successful first Christmas Fair. The Summer Fair is currently being organised.
The PTA are open to suggestions all the time. So if you have a great idea, come along and
Details of the events we organise are posted up around school and will appear on the letters page of this website as well as the Facebook page. Please follow the 'Kingsley Primary Academy' Facebook page to see all the notifications.
How is money spent?
Money will be spent on improving the school experience for children. Once fully established
we will set fundraising targets to support the projects and goals of the school.
It has been a lot of fun so far working with the initial group but we need more help and support. We are a big school and many hands make light work!
This is the easy bit. We can all do something. We can all contribute in some way. The PTA just needs to know who is willing to help.
We know as parents you have wide ranging commitments and responsibilities but even if it is hanging a decoration, supporting the tidying up after an event, whatever it is – we just need to know who is able to help – even if it is on the day itself.
You can get a PTA Registration form by clicking here. If you want to get involved then it can be printed off and completed and handed to the office or email your details to the address firstname.lastname@example.org and your details will be added to the PTA volunteer list. This way we can email you when help is needed for a project. In addition, if you provide a contact mobile number you can be added to the PTA Whatsapp Group so updates and queries can be managed by other PTA members.
