At St Laurence Primary we are very fortunate to have a Parent and Teacher Association (PTA) that has been an integral part of the school community for many years. The PTA has raised many thousands of pounds, which has been spent on improving equipment and resources to enhance our children's education and school facilities in general. In addition to fundraising the PTA exists to provide closer links between home and school, and it is an excellent way to bring staff, parents and children together socially in support of the school and working towards a common goal.
All parents automatically become members of the PTA when they join school and are invited to get involved, even if they only have a small amount of time available. As in most schools, the majority of PTA funds are raised through the events that we run such as the annual Summer Fayre, Family Discos, as well as Cake Sales and a 100 Club run jointly with the Parish.
The PTA committee consists of three elected officers (Chair,Treasurer and Secretary). The Committee meets on a regular basis, usually once each half term. In recent years the PTA have funded: KS1 Playground equipment, an audio, visual and multimedia sound system for use in the hall, a Christmas pantomime for the whole school, sports and PE equipment, an author visit for World Book Day and extra laptops for the school
This year the PTA are raising money to help fund ongoing improvements in the outdoor space.
