Why do we need a PTA?
Tranmere Park PTA is run by volunteers for the benefit of our children and their school. With regular cuts to government funding, schools in general are becoming increasingly dependent on PTAs for help to pay for equipment and facilities.
We endeavour to spend PTA funds in ways that will benefit all children across all areas of the school and curriculum and many of the resources purchased have a direct link to the School Improvement Plan. Usually our Headteachers will have a ‘shopping list’ of items that the school would like to purchase. In the main the PTA funds are for the ‘extras’ not provided by the school budget, that make our children’s learning experiences so much more fulfilling and exciting.
All parents and members of the school community can get involved if they want to, even if they only have a small amount of time available, and all parents are automatically members of the Association when their children join our school.
The aim of the PTA is not just about fundraising, it is also about developing relationships and a sense of community. Plus, it a great way of getting to know other parents and gives the children a real sense of belonging.
Thank you for your support!
Without the support of all the parents, carers and teachers at the school, the PTA couldn’t fund projects that have added so much value to the children’s education and enjoyment at Tranmere Park Primary school.
If you’d like to get involved, in any way you can, contact us and we look forward to welcoming you onboard!
