PTA

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.

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.

Get Involved

If you would like to get involved with the PTA, please contact the Chair by email emmbrookprimaryptachair@gmail.com. The PTA welcome new members and look forward to hearing from you.

PTA Update

In light of the announcement delaying the lifting of the remaining social distancing restrictions, sadly we are no longer able to proceed with our Summer BBQ celebration on Saturday 3rd July as planned.

As one of our biggest fundraisers, this is a real blow and we were looking forward to having some fun and raising much needed funds for our school.

However, we still plan to hold our raffle (tickets will be coming home with the children in the not too distant future) and we are pleased to say that the non-uniform day on Friday 2nd July will still go ahead for a suggested £1 donation.

We have also set up a justgiving page for anyone who is able to support the PTA to continue to help fund those extra experiences and equipment such as workshops, playground equipment, reading resources and more.

We are incredibly grateful to all those who volunteered to help on the day, behind the scenes and for the many who have already spent time and effort planning stalls.

You can also contribute to the school through their Amazon WishList. Each Year group indicates some items and extras that they would like to support the learning in their class. There is also a generic whole school list which includes many of the consumable resources that the school goes through.

The school would like the opportunity to thank you individually for your generous contributions. In order for them to be able do this, please add your name to the ‘free personalised gift message’ that should appear when you click on the option to deliver the item to our school address (some of you have done this and you should get a thank you email). Alternatively, please let the school office know (via a quick email) when you have bought something. Thanks again. Your support makes such a difference.
