Welcome to the St Andrew's School PTA page
Who is in the PTA?
Anyone who has a child in the school can join the PTA.
There is no voting to become a member on the PTA or to attend a meeting, nor is there a lifelong commitment.
Our meetings are usually held on a Wednesday in the staff room of the school at 6:45pm unless otherwise stated.
Everybody is welcome, and we are always looking for new parents to attend. Please just turn up if you've got a bit of spare time or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know you're coming - it's great to have new ideas or to have a different perspective. Maybe you have got some ideas from other schools or events that we could share. We are always willing to listen to new ideas that can generate funds for our school and help support our children.
Please get involved - after all it is for the children!!!

Listed below are the meetings planned for the next academic year. We will aim to stick to these dates as best we can.

Any months where we aren't meeting at school we may arrange a meeting at an alternative venue - again this will be publicised nearer the time.
Friday 6th October saw our first event of the year, our balloon race. Everyone had a great time seeing the hundreds of ballons float off into the distance and as ever it was lovely to welcome our new Reception families into our school family at this event too!
We made £395.64 at the event and were really pleased with the amount of balloon slips which were returned to the school this year. Well done to all of the children who joined in with the race and congratulations to our lucky winner!
CHRISTMAS FAIR - FRIDAY 8TH DECEMBER 2017
Our ever popular Christmas Fair will take place after school on Friday 8th December. There will be lots of information sent out before the event letting you know ways in which you can help us out and also letting you buy your "fast pass" tickets to visit Santa on the day.
Watch this space for more information over the coming weeks.
Last year we made a great many donations to the school to help buy extra equipment for our children. We will keep you informed of any purchases that we make over the coming year.
