Penshurst CE Primary School is very much a community school. The PTA is an active and integral part of that community, providing closer links between home and school, and enjoying a key role in bringing children, parents and staff together.

Fundraising is an important function: the PTA raises money to spend on equipment and resources to enhance the children’s education and the school facilities in general. Our major events are Bonfire Night, the Christmas Fayre and the May Fete, while other fundraisers include bun days, school discos and seasonal activities such as student-designed Christmas cards. Fundraising is not the only goal, however; a number of events, such as the Christmas Party and the Easter Egg Hunt are organised and paid for by the PTA with the aim of giving the children a treat and thanking families for their continued support.

The PTA committee consists of four officers (Chair, Treasurer, Secretary and Head of Class Reps) and a further six to eight other members. The committee meets regularly to work on fundraising ideas and activities, and holds an AGM at the beginning of each academic year.

If you are interested in joining the PTA, or would like to find out more about our work, please drop us an email via the school office, or simply join us at our next meeting. New members and helpers are always welcome!
