Welcome to our Parent Teacher Association Section!
Blakedown Parent Teacher Association (PTA) raises funds to support learning of all the schools children, providing extras which cannot be funded from out of the schools budget. We organise a number of fundraising events during each school year for both parents/carers and the children to enjoy.
The PTA has successfully raised thousands of pounds over a number of years. In 2017-18, the PTA raised an amazing £10,196!
Recent projects the PTA have supported include monies for:
IT Equipment including 15 netbooks for the whole school to use and ipads for each classroom; funding for school subscriptions such as Education City, Primary Science and My Maths. Phonics games for KS1, listening stations and a mini sound system for the school hall.
In addition £5 per child went towards a whole school trip or activity for each child.
All parents/carers are automatically members of the PTA.
Everyone is warmly invited to come along to our meetings and/or to become involved in supporting PTA events.
The PTA can only be effective if enough parents and carers get involved and help with fundraising. The PTA can only be effective if enough parents and carers get involved and help with fundraising.
