Welcome to our PTA Website Page. Here you will find all the information you will need about the PTA and the events that are organised.
What is the PTA?
The PTA is a group of friends of Settle C.E. Primary School who do so much to support and help the school by organising fun events for everyone to enjoy and raising money in many different ways throughout the school year. The PTA is made up of parents, relatives, staff and members of the community who give up their time to organise and run events. Every parent and member of staff is automatically a ‘Friend of Settle C.E. Primary School’ so we are always looking for more help with running our events.
What sort of events do the PTA run?
Each year the PTA have a programme of different events and the last school year saw the events of a Pampered Chef Evening, Chocolate Tombola at the Settle Lights Switch on, Christmas Craft Day, Bags to School, Easter Bingo, Easter Egg Hunt, Film Night, Summer Fair and an End of Year Disco.
What happens to the money raised at the PTA events?
The money raised through all of these events is so important and supports the school in contributing towards residential trips for Year 5 and 6. In the previous year £3300 was raised and this money helped pay for new seating and outdoor equipment for the school. This year other requests were made and so specific events contribute towards a specific need in the school such as the Early Years raised money towards some new waterproof suits.
Who co-ordinates the PTA?
We have a number of key roles in the PTA with the people below having responsibilities for specific areas.
