Parent Teacher Association (PTA)
Dear Parents and Carers,
Welcome to Pensford School. For those of you that don't know me, my name is Lisa Cains, I am Mum to Loris (Year 3) and Leonardo (Reception). I am also Chairperson of Pensford School PTA. We have a fantastic core committee which includes Kirsty Wickenden as Secretary and Tracy Jones as Treasurer.
The purpose of the PTA is to raise money for equipment, resources and enhancing activities that the school cannot purchase within their budget. We are really proud to take this important role in developing and enriching the school environment by providing “those little extras”.
We raise a significant amount of money for our school, for example last year we were able to provide;
- Over £2500 to purchase the new library furniture.
- £500 per classroom to spend on resources such as cameras and magnifying glasses.
- £200 for the performance of “The Snow Queen”.
- £1200 for new classroom tables and chairs.
We organise a wide range of fund-raising initiatives, from large community events such as the Pensford 10K Fun Run, to smaller activities such as cake sales. As well as fun events for the children such as film nights and the school disco.
In order to be successful, the support of our parents/carers is vital. We encourage each of you to show your support by joining in. Your participation might be that of a committee member, volunteer, or merely as an attendee at our meetings and events. Whatever level of participation you select, your time and involvement is certainly appreciated.
We will send out details of all our monthly meetings and forthcoming events here and via text messages. If you're on Facebook, we also have a Facebook page called “Friends of Pensford School”, so please take a look as you will also get details of activities via that forum.
Please do get in touch if you have any queries or ideas. We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible at the next PTA meeting, details of which will be advertised soon.
Thank you for your support :)
