Welcome to Chennestone PTA
Let’s make next year the best year yet! We can do it with your help.
Parents automatically become a member of the PTA when their child joins Chennestone - we would love for you to become involved.
PTA meetings are open to everyone and we would encourage you to come and hear about the events we are planning for the new academic year. We would also love to hear about your ideas for fundraising and how best we could spend the money we raise. As a collaborative group everyone’s input is valued.
This year the PTA are looking to purchase Google Chrome books for the school. We are hoping to use the funds we have accumulated over the last two years as well as running a few fund raising events in the autumn, once the lockdown restrictions have been lifted.
The good news is, everything your PTA raises goes directly to providing for the school, and, in consultation with staff, parents have a say on where and how the money is spent.
It’s not just big projects that are funded… Each year we provide:
every class with a cash fund
leavers’ yearbooks for Year 6
new intake book bags
and many extras the school might ask for during the year.
The PTA plays a key role raising funds for the school, but also holds events throughout the school year for the enjoyment of the children. These have normally included:
Back to school disco
End of year disco
You can make a real difference! More parents involved with their PTA means more money raised through more fun events, benefiting everyone.
We always need people to help at the events, manning stalls, helping on the bar or setting up and clearing away.
Whatever your talents, there’s always something you could help with, however small the amount of time you can contribute.
Just drop us an email if you are interested firstname.lastname@example.org
If you wish to make a contribution to the PTA and you have limited time, you may choose to make a financial contribution to PTA funds directly. This donation is optional, with no expectation around the amount given.
The PTA and parents now use an app called Classlist to keep in touch with each other and keep up to date on all the happenings in and around school. We also use this for community events, purchasing tickets to events run by the PTA and many more helpful things.
