PTA

Welcome to the PTA webpage for Romsey Abbey Primary School. Registered Charity Number 1037903.

 

Here you can find useful information about the PTA and upcoming events.

What is the PTA and what does it do?

The PTA – Parent Teacher’s Association, is a formal organisation composed of parents, teachers and staff from the school and is designed to facilitate parental participation in the school. Each school will organise their PTA in a way which suits them but generally, there will be a chairperson, treasurer, secretary and parent representatives.

Here at Romsey Abbey – the PTA is fully involved in the organisation of events which are held throughout the school year and aim to help raise funds which will then be put back into the ongoing development and improvement of the school. To date, the PTA has helped to raise nearly £10,000 for the school and has contributed much of this to the current building works that are extending the school and improving its’ accessibility.

Even if you are not a member of the PTA, we are always looking for people to help with events and fund-raising initiatives, it does not need to be a full-time commitment – come and speak to one of us, if you are interested in helping as and when you may be able to and we’ll keep you in mind when planning each event.

How do you become a member of the PTA?

Membership is open to all parents of the school and does not require you to attend every meeting – just as much assistance during activities that may be taking place as well as helping to spread the word about events and information when talking to other parents at the school. If you are not sure if you can commit to attending the meetings but would be happy to assist as and when you are available – speak to one of the PTA members and we’ll make sure you are kept informed so you can offer your support when possible.
