Future events

The PTA Committee plans an ambitious programme of events , but we are always open to hear suggestions for events or activities that other parents or family members have for events they would like to see run that can raise funds for the school.

 

Please get in touch with any member of the committee or come along to a meeting - meetings are very relaxed and it's a good way to find out more about the what we as parents can do to help our children.

Do you shop online?

Do you shop online? If so, please check out The Giving Machine  because the chances are the shops you use will pay money to the school- and it won't cost you a single penny extra - we have raised over £120 so far, but we could considerably increase this if everyone remembers to use it!

PTA activity

Help us make Thatcham Park School an even more fantastic place for our children to learn by joining and/or supporting the PTA.

 

The PTA is a group of committed parents that spend their time planning and organising events that raise money to spend on the children that attend our lovely school. Technically, every parent or guardian of a child at the school is a member of the PTA - but to make our PTA run really well, we need people to get involved in one way or another. That could be attending one or more of the fantastic events run for children, parents or families, joining the committee or simply using one of the services that earns money for the school for free. There's loads going on and we're always glad to see new faces and hear from people that want to help us make a difference; whether that's suggesting an event that can raise funds, or proposing a project that the PTA funds can be spent on. So please - read on and please get involved!

What we have achieved

The PTA is tremendously grateful to everyone that comes to and supports the events and activities it runs. The money we raised from recent events has meant that the PTA has been able to pay for some important projects and enjoyable activities at the school that really make a difference for all our children.

 

Recent Projects funded by PTA include:

 

Shade Sail - in the KS1 playground to provide sun safe play and outdoor learning area for KS1 children.
