Welcome to the Parents' Association!
The PA work closely with the Headteacher and staff at the School to organise exciting events that the children and their family and friends can enjoy. We believe these events contribute greatly to the community of our children's School, some which have been part of the School calendar for over 50 years!!
Of course, the benefit of running these events is that we raise over £15,000 each year for the School which provide many of the 'added extras' our children look forward to at Staples Road.
Each year we arrange a pantomine for the Infant children, provide a class gift at the Christmas parties and purchase crackers for their Christmas Dinner. We subsidise and sponsor educational visits for the children whilst also buying equipment such as Digital Cameras and Electronic Whiteboards for each classroom. We also finance larger projects such as the sound and lighting system in the Main Hall, playground equipment and new shading as well as computers for the children.
Members of the PA are all parents and carers of children at the School and we work together to liaise with the School and organise events. Our main fundraising events are the Summer Fun Day and Christmas Fayre. We also run the Movie and Disco nights, as well as events for parents such as Quiz Nights.
It's an obvious statement, but the events can't happen if we don't have your support! We are constantly looking for willing volunteers to assists at the events we run and becoming a ‘Friend-of-the-PA’ (FOTPA). FOTPA members are an incredible resource and we encourage parents and carers to sign up and become part of a really welcoming school community.
Details of forthcoming activities are displayed on the PA noticeboards at the entrances to the School and on the website. If you would like to know more please do contact a member of the committee on firstname.lastname@example.org or leave your name at the School Office.
We look forward to working together!
