How do we spend the money we raise?

Following a fundraising event the Committee discuss with Mr Barr what the money should be spent on.  Sometimes this will be for resources to improve a particular area of the curriculum  or school environment or will be based on requests by the children.  


The PTA funds are spent on the 'extras' that are not provided for by the school budget, thus enhancing our children's learning experiences.  PTA funds are generally not spent on improving the school building itself, as this is the responsibility of the School Governing Body.  


As the money we raise is usually spent fairly quickly, you can be sure that your child/ren will benefit directly.  


Over the years the PTA has supplied the school with a long list of items.....

  • Maths equipment
  • Playground equipment
  • Sports equipment such as goalposts and basketball nets
  • Sports kits
  • Interactive whiteboards for every classroom - these have completely revolutionised teaching by giving access to up-to-date teaching activities that engage the children at all levels
  • Activote systems - these are used in conjunction with the whiteboards
  • Multi-purpose tables
  • Computer controllable devices
  • Funding for the school library - allowing the school to purchase new books

All of these have been purchased to enhance your child's learning and the teachers really appreciate the benefits they bring.
