PTA

Parent Teachers Association

Petersfield PTA is a well established partnership between parents and teachers that aims to strengthen the school community and raise funds. Money raised by the PTA is to fund the 'extras' that the school would not otherwise be able to provide. Decisions about what to fund are made each year by the PTA with input and requests from parents and teachers alike.

PTA

Regular PTA events through out the school year include:

  • Fireworks night - a night of fun and fireworks for the whole family offering a good-value night with BBQ, Glosticks, mulled wine and hot chocolate, sweets and more!
  • The Christmas Fayre - a chance for the children to share the excitement of Christmas with a cake stall, teas and coffees, secret presents, a raffle, tombola, and games stalls.
  • Schools Discos - Key stage 1 and 2 discos held each term as a chance for pupils to get together with their friends and have fun. We sell sweets and drinks, do face-painting, temporary tattoos and nails.
  • Summer Fayre - An extravangaza of summer fun with a huge range of fun stalls, games, raffles, bouncy castles and lots more too!
  • Cake stalls - organised by the pupils and held once a half term hosted by each class in turn. It is a great way for pupils and parents to get involved as they help sell the cakes to the rest of the school and other parents.
  • Annual Quiz night - in the Autumn term, a great night out, and it does get quite raucous at times!

The Giving Machine allows you to shop at all major retailers and at the same time generate a donation to the PTA without any cost to you. Just follow the link and sign up, adding 'Petersfield' as your cause to support.

The PTA have set up an online ticket office for you to buy your tickets to the wonderful events run throughout the year such as the 'Pop Up Circus'. Here you can pay with credit or debit card. Please visit our PTA Website to see what's on sale and find out about upcoming events.
