The PTA (Parent Teacher Association) is a voluntary group of parents and school staff who organise events during the year to raise funds for the school. Government funding to schools is reducing and so income raised by PTAs is now an integral part of the school’s budget. Each year we work with the Governing Body & Head Teacher to identify the fundraising priorities.
Last academic year we raised over £3,500 which will be spent on improving outside areas of school, including the FSU playground, the main playground behind it and new picnic benches.
We organise various fundraising events throughout the year to enable the school and local community to come together and we aim to get a half- termly newsletter out to keep everybody up-to-date on events & funds raised.
You will find the provisional event schedule below, but if you have any further ideas for events or would like to help out with any of them, please get in touch - firstname.lastname@example.org.
You automatically become a member of the PTA when your child joins Charlton-on-Otmoor school, but there is also a committee who get together each half term to organise the various events. The current committee, including three new people who signed up in October, is
- Jo Stocks (Paddy in Yr 2)
- Sukey McMaster (Isobel Yr 2 & Mairi FSU)
- Midge Pearson (Mitzi Yr 1 & Henry FSU)
- Vicky Robinson (George Yr 2)
- Fiona Marshall (Finley Yr 3 and Rowan FSU)
- Camilla Rolton (Max Yr2 and Hugo FSU)
- Emma Wykes (Isobel Yr1)
- Lou Lehane (Nieve FSU)
- Rachel Harbut (Orla FSU and Lucas Yr 1)
Please contact us if you would like to get involved in any way!
