PTA

Our PTA consists of parents, staff and friends of the school who volunteer their time to raise additional funds for the school through a number of organised events throughout the year.

Our current Chair is Becky Gladwin, Vice Chair Kirsten Reeves, Treasurer Jane Tarver and Secretary, Lisa Thompson. We also have a team of committee members, most of which are class reps.  Over the years the PTA have raised funds to develop the school garden, both playgrounds, Key Stage 2 Hall.

Latest update: May 2017

PTA News The countdown to the Summer Fete has begun!!!  We’re sure you’re all aware that this year’s event is going to be held on Friday 7th July from 3:30pm.  The theme we have decided on for this year is going to be “The Wild West”.  We have been coming up with some brilliant ideas and plans but we’d like to invite everyone along to a meeting next Friday, 26th May at 9:15am in the dining hall to see what other ideas anyone else may have.  We know that you all have busy lives, but as we’ve said before, these events take a lot of hard work and organising so the more people we can have to help the lighter the load for EVERYONE.  Please try and come along if you’re able to offer any help or if not, please try and contact one of us to let us know whether you’re available to volunteer on the day of the Fete.

As in previous years, there will be a non-uniform day, where we will be asking for donations towards the Summer Fete in return for the children being able to wear their own clothes to school.  This date has been planned for Friday 23rd June.  We will be sending out a list of the donations we need in the near future.
 
We have confirmed (thanks to Jo Bailey) that the Worcester News will be advertising our event approximately two weeks before and will also be there on the day to take photographs etc.  If you do not wish your child’s image to appear in the local paper, please make the photographer is aware of this on the day.
 
We’d really like to make this year’s event one to remember, so please, please, please do come forward if you can help in anyway.  Nobody will be turned away!!! 
 

The PTA purchase book bags for all new starters in Reception, provide prizes for class throughout the year, ice lollies for sports day and Year 6 ties annually. Recently PTA funds were used to develop learning in each classroom.

In order to finance these initiatives, fundraising events take place such as the Summer Fete, Christmas Bazaar, Bingo night and Bake a Cake. Ongoing schemes such as the Bags to School provide valuable and regular income.

During the next 12 months we plan to continue to develop Key Stage 1 Playground. If you have any ideas or are able to volunteer your time, Becky will be delighted to hear from you. To contact the PTA, either leave a message with the school Reception, talk to your class rep or visit the Oldbury Park PTA Facebook page.
