Who are the PTA?
Friends of Stanbridge Primary School PTA is a non-profit organisation made up of volunteers of teachers, parents, grandparents and carers whose children attend the school. There are four of us on the board:
Chairs - Carolyn Pimm and Sarah Parrott
Treasurer – Jane Evans
Secretary – Louise Humphreys
But we are helped by many, many more volunteers all dedicated to raising funds to support the school in enriching the lives of its pupils.
What do the funds raised by the PTA go towards?
Thanks to support of the teachers, parents and fund-matching/donations from The Clara E Burgess Charity, Tesco Bags of Help and Sun Life, we were recently able to donate £20,000 to the School in early 2019 to help fund the replacement/repair of the all-weather play equipment in the field and a new running track, installed in May!
We also donate ad-hoc amounts to the school for trips, reception/leavers gifts, the Y6 SATS breakfast, and to the Y6 prom, which is organised by parents.
What events does the PTA run and when are they?
The events range from after-school film or disco nights to ad hoc cake sales or splash parties and annual events such as the Christmas Fayre/Carols. For the latest on what’s coming up, visit our Facebook events page or our PTA-Events page here.
Can I pay online for events?
You can now pay online for Friends of Stanbridge events – register on our PTA-Events page and once you verify the account, you’ll be able to log in and pay for any event listed. For those who prefer to pay by cash or cheque there is a ‘PTA box’ on the wall in the school office where cash (in envelopes!) can be posted.
The PTA can accept the 50p and £1 coins that have recently been replaced by new versions - although shops won't accept them as legal tender we are still able to bank them.
How can I help?
Parents, grandparents and carers are welcome to help out whenever and however they can, whether that’s contributing ideas in a planning meeting, spending half-an-hour manning a stall, subscribing to the monthly Lottery or any other way you think you can support us. Any and all help welcome!
