What do Class Rep's do?
Chat at the school gate, over WhatsApp and social media!
They share PTA info and assist to co-ordinate with class drop off / donations and share event ideas
We need a few Class Rep's for each year group
How much time is involved in helping?
It's as much or as little time as you can spare:
1 hour on one event in the school year
30 mins a month
Behind the scenes advertising, 15 mins per term
Being a Class Rep - spreading the word at the school gate & on social media
It's completely up to you, but the more people involved, the less we'll all have to do! You get the idea, everyone can help out a little and it all makes a difference to our children
When & where are meetings?
Recently we've had meetings over Zoom, due to Covid restrictions
As restrictions are lifting slightly, we aim to have as many meetings in school hall, so we can safely space out
Meetings will be once per term
Everyone is welcome at all meetings
There is a WhatsApp group for anyone wanting to be involved
I can't attend the meetings, where are the minutes of previous meetings?
Yes! The minutes will be added on here
We aim to post a short agenda prior to the meetings
If you can't attend in person and have something to suggest or ask, please contact us on here and we'll assist
I don't have much free time how can I help?
There are lots of ways to help:
Share school events via social media to other parents, carers & family who might not be on Facebook
Suggesting an event idea
Ask your employer for a donation and giving it us to sell or will they match our fundraising if you're involved in an event. Some companies allow time for for charity work
Are you or anyone in your family good at crafts and could make/donate items we could sell?
Could you collect an item/s from a local shop for an event?
Are you a Mental Health or Wellbeing Champion or work in Inclusive roles and could provide guidance to school?
Why do we need a PTA?
Shrinking budgets, increasing class sizes & poor government funding. The PTA can assist with this:
Host fun events – that can help develop critical thinking & creativity
Links families to school info
Engages with school
Supports an inclusive environment
Enhances books and literary options
Help to strengthen our school community
Raise money to support the specific needs of school
Believe we can make every child’s potential a reality!
