What is a Parent Teacher Association (PTA)?

Ranelagh Primary School has a Parent Teacher Association (PTA), which is an organisation of parents and staff. Its role is to encourage closer links between home and school. PTAs are best known for their fundraising work. Fundraising events provide an opportunity for parents, staff and pupils to work together.

How is Money Raised?

Most PTAs raise money through events. They often hold one main event each school term – for example, a Christmas fair in the winter and a summer fair. We are always looking for new fundraising ideas.

How Can I Be Involved in my PTA?

There are many different ways you can help with the PTA, whether you have lots of time to offer or not.

Some of the roles are time-consuming, although also rewarding. If you can’t commit to a big job, look out for things you can do less frequently (eg running a stall at the summer fair, baking for a cake sale). And you can always support PTA events by simply turning up!
