National Confederation of Parent Teacher Associations

Our PTA group are members of the National Confederation of Parent Teacher Associations (NCPTA) which is a national charity representing over 13,000 PTAs across England, Wales and Northern Ireland.  Its objectives are to advance education by encouraging the fullest co-operation between home and school, education authorities, central government and all other interested parties and bodies.

We also receive their magazine which gives a wealth of information that we put to good use wherever we can.  The magazine can be viewed on line; just go to www.ptalocal.co.uk.

In addition to the magazine, we can also access their websites atwww.ncpta.org.uk and www.ptalocal.co.uk.  This is also a valuable resource to you as parents and carers, with signposts to useful, relevant websites on subjects such as bullying, school funding, special educational needs, homework, and much more.  It really is worth a look.

How funds are spent?

Funds are spent on activities and equipment that directly benefit the children - we like to call them the 'over and aboves'! The teachers submit their request, in writing, and we review and discuss the request as a group. On average we donate £3000/£4000 per year!

We have provided monetary support for playground equipment, transport for trips, leavers year books, Christmas gifts for the children, Reception Book Bags and lots more!

The PTA also commit £300 per year per class, for the class teacher to spend on anything that they feel is appropriate.


How much money do we raise?

The amount of money raised varies from year to year - this is also dependant on whether we have a target to meet for a specific item.

We concentrate on high value events, but we also like to provide events that don't raise/cost a lot of money, but are fun and enjoyable for the children - our school discos are legendary and the Secret Room at Christmas time is a joy to see! We may sometimes organise Mufti Days wear fancy dress or their favourite clothes, for chocolate boxes instead of cash! These are great social events for the children that bring the school community together and contribute to the children's positive outlook towards life at Milnthorpe Primary School!
