Deanshanger Primary School has an extremely active and supportive Parent and Teacher Association (PTA). They meet regularly to discuss and organise fun and exciting activities for the children and parents to enjoy at the school. They also raise funds to provide special events and extra resources for the school. Each year the PTA arrange numerous activities for the children such as colour runs, magic shows and discos, a quiz night for parents and this year we even had a circus!
The annual Christmas and Summer Bazaars are very well attended by the extended school community and in return raise large amounts for the school. In the last two years the PTA have funded two wooden bandas on the field for play/shade, a safety surface for play equipment, upgrades in the library, a laptop trolley, hall curtains, new reading books, kindles and a lot, lot more! Their fundraising last year went towards large-scale upgrades to the KS1 courtyard play area. This year they have pledged £12,000 towards our kitchen fundraising project.
If you would like to become actively involved with the PTA or volunteer your help at any of our events, please contact the school office, where your details will be passed to Karen Norgett – Chairperson of the PTA. New members and ideas are always gratefully received.
