PTA

Welcome to the Holy Trinity PTA Page!

Who are we and what do we do?

We are a small group of parents and teachers who meet approximately once a month to plan and organise fun events and activities which raise funds that are used within the school to benefit the children. We also discuss how to allocate the funds raised following requests received from the school.

We are a very informal group and membership changes every year, but we do have a committee that ensures everything runs smoothly – the current members of this are:

Chairman: Suzannah Stott, parent of Lucas  (Y2) and Harriett (Reception)

Vice-Chairman: Lucy Pierce, parent of Cara (Y4) and Megan (Y1)

Secretary: Jo Askey, parent of Sophie (Y5) and Jessica (Y3)

Treasurer: Hannah Furlong , parent of Amelia (Reception)

How much money do we raise and what does it get spent on?

In the 2018/19 school year, the PTA had a very successful year of fundraising and we finished with an overall profit of over £10,000 once all costs had been deducted.

Some of the most profitable events were the Christmas Fair, Summer fayre, Holy Trinity’s Got Talent and the school disco.

Other fundraising activities included:

  • Parents’ Quiz Night
  • Film night
  • Reception Tea Towels
  • Christmas Cards/Gifts
  • Mother’s Day & Father’s Day gift events
  • Bags2School

The funds we raise are for extra items for the children and the more we raise the more we can provide for the school. We are always open to new fundraising suggestions and ideas from teachers and parents. Please see details below of how you can get involved.

Examples of what some of the funds have been spent on over the last year

  • Library canopy
  • Year 1 role play
  • Gardening club
  • SEN reading books
  • Easter eggs
  • DT bench
  • Leavers books for Year 6
  • Whole school end of year event – Get me out of here day!

If you have any suggestions on what future funds could be spent on please let the PTA know (see details below)

What you can do to help

Get Involved! We are a small group and would welcome new members and/or suggestions so please consider coming along to a meeting (see the school calendar for date) or be a class rep or an event volunteer or send a suggestion for an event through to the link below.

Volunteer for Events. All of the PTA events need adult helpers to work – from helping in the planning of events to manning a stall for a fayre or disco for an hour. The more volunteers we get, the more events we can run  and the more money we can make for the school.

Make suggestions. Even if you can’t make a meeting or volunteer to help at an event, you might have a really good idea for fundraising or where the money could be spent – please feel free to send this through either to the PTA email address (holytrinity.pta1@gmail.com) or by using the suggestion box below.
