The PTA is a group of volunteers who help to raise funds for our school and are dedicated to supporting our children. The group is made up of parents, teachers and friends of Redgate Primary School and we are always looking for new members to come along, get involved and bring fresh ideas.
Whether you have lots of time or only a little to spare we value all who feel they can contribute towards vital fundraising. It’s a great way to meet other parents, make friends and have fun while supporting the school.
We meet every 4-6 weeks and our meetings are very relaxed and informal as we discuss and plan upcoming events. Meetings are held at various times to enure that everyone wanting to contribute can do so. Every penny we make goes directly to our school to help pay for trips and equipment, so every little bit really does make a difference.
Recently Redgate PTA have involved the wider community in our events which has been extremely successful, it’s a lovely way of bringing new people into our school and we have received some fantastic feedback about this as well as raising extra funds for our school.
Below is a list of events we have hosted during the last school year:
Teddy Bears Picnic
Lunch with Santa
Family Quiz Night
Half term discos
Christmas shopping evening
Friday playtime snack
Mothers/Fathers Day Wonka prize bars
And many more...
If you are interested in coming along to our next meeting or would like more information please contact the school office or any member of the PTA and we would be happy to have a chat with you over a coffee.
