Engaines Primary School and Nursery

Achieving great things together

PTA - Engaines Parent/Teacher Association

What is the PTA?

We are a group of parents and staff, who all give our time on a voluntary basis to organise and run fundraising (and hopefully fun!) activities for those in our school community.
Our aim is to use the funds we raise to provide ‘extras’ for the school, as well as working on more major projects to enhance the school environment e.g. at the moment we are raising funds to improve our quiet area on the playground; we raised money to build our Reading Hut and provide it with electricity. In addition, the school gives us a ‘wish list’ of items they feel would be of benefit. For example, we contribute every year to all the children watching a Christmas panto- oh yes we do!

PTA events
Our main fundraisers of the year are the Firework display and our Summer Fete . Other events through the year can include discos and the ever-popular cake sales. If you have ideas for any other events, please speak to your Parent Forum representative or come along to our next meeting.

Join in
If you would like to find out more about what we do, become involved in the PTA either as a volunteer at events or even as Chair. You are welcome to come along to one of the PTA meetings (ask the school office staff when this is). It’s a great way to be part of school life!
Our PTA Chair is Cheryl Harris, Vice Chair is Emma Wright, the PTA Secretary is Caroline Hyde, and the PTA Treasurers are Wendy Jones and Kelly Cantrell.
