Every parent and carer is automatically a member of the PTA, which is an extremely active body. The group have their own committee and are a registered charity existing to support the school through fundraising and events that enrich children’s and parents’ / carers’ experiences of Appleton Thorn.
 

Last year the PTA held a number of events including, the village firework display, chocolate bingo and children’s discos. The funds generated over the last four years have been used to equip every class in the school with an interactive touchscreen televisions, help fund new computers in the computing suite, enhance the playground with wooden play equipment, an outdoor classroom facility and to furbish the hall with an audio and lighting system.

I am extremely proud to be the Headteacher of a school with such an active and supportive PTA. 

The picture below shows two of our PTA committee members, and their children, receiving an award in London for the excellent communication work they do. The PTA is not just there to raise funds. It is a supportive group to help the school and to help parents deal with the daily challenges we all have to face on a daily basis.
