Welcome to Salfords Primary School PTA!
The PTA is a very important and exciting part of the school life here at Salfords Primary School. One of the things that sets this school apart from many others is its sense of community where everyone works together for the ultimate good of our children.
In the past, our PTA have helped to purchase and contribute towards items which directly benefit our children’s education, such as essential books, mini bus, outdoor classroom, Google Chrome Books and a climbing wall.
Events we usually hold include: Summer and Christmas Fairs, Children’s Disco, Parent quiz night, afterschool cake and ice-lolly sales.
During lockdown, we have had to tailor what we do, but successfully held a sponsored wellbeing event, whereby children had to complete 10 hours of outdoor activity. Within school, we arranged special events for the children in their class bubbles including Go Crazy Mufti Hats/Hair Day, Christmas Extravaganza and an Easter Eggstravaganza.
As you know running events can only be done with the support of others, just an hour of your time can really help support our fundraising efforts. Things such as:
- Cake baking
- Setting up or selling at cake sales
- Helping sell ice lollies on Freezer Fridays
- Setting up/tidying up at the Summer or Winter Fair
- Making sweet packets for the disco
- Creating signs and banners
- Running a stall with other class parents/carers
- Donating prizes
Our role isn’t just fund raising, it’s also about encouraging all of us as parents and also our children to socialise with each other and to enhance the community spirit within this school! Our PTA meetings are sometimes held in the local pub and this can be a great way to meet new parents/carers.
Other ways you can help to fundraise!
- Amazon Smile
- 2nd hand uniform donations of any outgrown school clothes
- Recycle old clothes in ‘Bertie Bin’
- Charity Matched Funding
- We can sell your old CD's/DVD's via Music Magpie. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on any of the above
The PTA committee is made up of many representative parents/carers from each school year, plus the teachers. We meet regularly, and all parents, carers and teachers are welcome to come along. Meeting dates are circulated by email to all parents and teachers, as well as appearing on the calendar on the school website – Please click here for more information:
