What is the PTA?
Trafalgar Schools PTA is a charitable organisation (UK Registered Charity 1001584) and is dependent solely on volunteers from the school community. The PTA is run by a committee of volunteers. Every class has at least 2 representatives who provide a link between the parents, teachers and PTA.
We exist to bring the communities of school and home closer together and enable parents to be involved in the life of their chosen school.
We support the school by raising as much money as we can to enhance, enrich and improve learning experiences for the children.
With the increasing squeeze on school budgets, our fundraising is ever more important. Each year we aim to raise £18,000 for the school to spend on resources to enhance the experience for our children.
Where does the money go?
The money we raise provides the children with new maths games, new books for the library and the home reading scheme, and subscriptions for vital online learning platforms: Spelling Shed, Mathletics, Bug Club and Abacus.
Every year we maintain the beautiful aquarium in the Infant school reception area, fund visits from theatre companies and authors.
We pay for the small but important things like school prefect badges, merit tea parties, a water bottle for every Reception child when they join and a leaver book for every member of Year 6 as they say goodbye to Trafalgar.
In recent years we have helped fund new projects to improve the school including the Meadway kitchen garden project, improvement to the Junior playground and most recently a refurbishment of the Junior library.
