Parent Teacher Association (PTA)
All existing parents and new arrivals at Chennestone are automatically members of the PTA. Parents are also welcome to join the Committee, which meets in the evening to plan fundraising and social events. If you are new to Chennestone it can be a great way of getting to know other parents and teachers. In addition, each class has two parent representatives, who organise class social events, get people involved and meet regularly with the Headteacher. Regular PTA newsletters, the website, the MLE and the weekly school newsletter keep everyone updated.
The aim of the PTA at Chennestone is to provide the school with many of the essentials and extras that would otherwise not be available from the annual school budget and to foster a sense of community. The PTA has a number of social and fundraising events throughout the year. These include the Christmas Fair, the Summer Fair, raffles and lotteries, family and school discos, quiz nights, fashion shows, shopping evenings and ice skating. In previous years, the PTA has provided the school with large items such as new staging, an adventure trail for the playground, a PA system, hall curtains, curriculum resources for Numeracy, reading books and playground equipment. Annually the PTA raise approximately £10,000.
