Committee Office Bearers and General Committee Members are nominated and elected at the association’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) to form a PTA Committee responsible for managing the association on behalf of ALL of the members.

PTA members and helpers can be easily identified at events with their official Royal Blue PTA Polo Shirts. ALL PTA volunteers wearing an official polo shirt MUST have current DBS approval logged with the school.
We also need supporters, and occasional helpers, without support and help we would not be able to put on events such as the Summer and Christmas Fairs.
The PTA are always looking for new members, friends and helpers. If you are able to help please let us know. It may be that you can contribute a small amount of your time or know someone who might be interested in helping.
