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 arranges numerous activities for the children, such as colour runs, magic shows and discos, a quiz night, raffles, and most recently, a dinosaur experience for the whole school.
In the last few 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, interactive whiteboards, funded an author visit (Tom Palmer), provided a brand new KS1 courtyard play area, given £12,000 for the kitchen project, a reading book for every child in the school at Christmas, play equipment, a new outside reading area, a very deluxe forest school shed and a dinosaur day!
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 Jennie Harris - Chair of the PTA. New members and ideas are always gratefully received.
