All parents, carers and staff are welcome to become a member of Caldershaw Primary School PTA.
We are always looking for new recruits to be part of this team. It is lovely to welcome those with new fresh ideas and different skills that can be brought to the table. The PTA relies heavily on new recruits to keep the fund raising going. As our children leave in year 6, so do our PTA parents, so please do not be shy, we would love to welcome you to the team!
What the PTA does
The PTA organises fund raising, social activities and events like the Summer and Christmas Fairs, Key Stage discos, cake sales, Christmas cards, Santa Runs and raffles. Our aim is to raise funds to support both larger and smaller school activities whilst bringing some enjoyment and fun to parents, staff and children! Fundraising will be a bit different at the moment with Covid19 and Social Distancing in force - but we will still do all we can for the school whilst having fun and staying safe!
How to Get involved
As the saying goes – many hands make light work. That is definitely the case with our PTA. It’s a real team effort and we wouldn’t be able to run the events, and raise the funds we do, without the help of the parents, carers and staff.
There are several ways you can get involved and help.
- Become a member of the PTA – members are required to attend as many meetings as possible and contribute to our facebook page. There is a Senior Committee made up of the Chair, Vice Chair, Treasurer and Secretaries but all members contribute and play a role in making decisions and organising events and activities.
- Help at events – large events, such as the Christmas and summer fetes need a lot of help to be a success. It is at these when we really do need all the help we can get. Volunteering on your child's class stall for thirty minutes will be a big help. If we require extra help at events there will be a section you can register your help when booking tickets via our online booking system.
