PTA

Hello and welcome to Alma Park PTA!

Please see here for our blog of what we have been up to lately.

Who we are...

PTA stands for Parents and Teachers Association, and all parents and carers at Alma

Park are automatically members- so you don’t need to do anything to join.

The main aim of the PTA is to raise money, which can then be spent on equipment and

experiences for the children. In the past, money raised by the PTA has been spent on:

  •  New playground equipment
  •  Christmas and Eid parties
  •  The PA system for the school hall
  •  Musical instruments
  •  New books and toys
  •  School trips

And much more!

Currently our main fundraising events are the summer and autumn fairs, but we are always

looking for new ways to raise money for the school, so if you have any ideas please do let us

know!

Getting Involved

We would love for you to get involved with the PTA during your child/ren’s time at Alma Park,

and the great news is that there are lots of ways you can do that.

We have tea/coffee mornings every Friday during term time after morning drop-off. These are

held in the community room (the building behind the nursery playground) and are a chance to

meet and get to know other parents and find out about what’s going on. New faces are

always welcome, and there are toys and books to entertain younger siblings.

We also have a formal PTA meeting every half-term where we discuss upcoming fundraising

events and how the PTA money is spent. The dates of these are sent out by Parent Mail, and

again anyone is welcome to attend.

We appreciate that everyone’s circumstances are different and not everyone will be able to

attend meetings, but there are still lots of other ways you can get involved- by helping with the

preparations for the summer fair, baking cakes, making posters, selling raffle tickets or face

painting. Every little helps- so whether you can help organise events, or just have a spare

half an hour here and there- you’ll be making a big difference.

 

If you’re interested please contact the PTA at almaparkpta@gmail.com or through

the school office.
