Parent Teacher Association

Emmbrook Junior and Infant schools have a combined PTA. This is an invaluable part of the school team as it successfully raises funds for additional little extras that enhance the children’s lives in both schools.

What does the money raised get used for?

Every year group has £500 towards the costs of trips or events. This may be used to subsidise a single trip or put towards multiple trips and events.

Science this year includes workshops for all children at a cost of £1000 which is being covered by PTA funding.

During EmmBook week to celebrate world book day all the children participate in drama workshops over the course of the week. The costs of these works shops are covered by PTA funding too.

Previously the PTA have paid for the construction of our Trim Trail and contributed to the costs of our reading chalet both of which benefit all children in the school.

This term we are committing £7500 to the resurfacing of the ground around our trim trail making to accessible for more of the year for all the children.


Fund Raising

Our PTA hold a number of events throughout the school year to raise money for both schools. Our main events are the Christmas and Summer Fairs although other events such as quiz nights and ‘pamper’ evenings for the parents, and disco for the children are also part of the PTA calendar.

The money raised by the PTA has recently been spent on tyre park and fitness trail, digital cameras, basketball nets, football kit, stage lighting and Flip video recorders.

PTA Class Representatives

A massive thank you to all those who have agreed to be PTA class representatives. We really appreciate your support. 

We are still on the lookout for willing volunteers especially from years 3 and 6.

The Class Representative will share updates and information about upcoming PTA events & initiatives with parents & carers in their child’s class / year (via WhatsApp / Facebook etc…), and feedback thoughts & ideas to the committee. It won’t take up much time at all. 

By bringing together a group of Class Reps (at least one Rep from each Class / Year group) we’re hoping to streamline our communications to parents & carers, increase awareness of all the exciting PTA events & activities planned throughout the school year and welcome more friends to our PTA.

Below is the list of reps for each Juniors year group:

  • Year 3: Pam Peers
  • Year 4: Sean O’Grady, Sara Bradley, James Berkeley
  • Year 5: Claire Watson
  • Year 6: Sean Clarkson

If you’re interested in being a representative for your child’s class or you’d like any more information, we’d love to hear from you.

Please contact Gen Cotter: [email protected]
