Who are the PTA:
The Parents and Teachers Association holds events throughout the year to raise funds towards the school. These funds are used to purchase new resources which benefit all the children at Richmond Park.
The PTA is not an exclusive club, as a parent of the school you are automatically a member, you don’t have to be specially asked! Each new academic year we are required to elect official members, who are as follows:
Chairperson - Lisa Howells
Vice chairperson - Chimene Claret
Secretary - Sophie Peyton
Treasurer - Lorna Hosken-Thomas
Why do we have a PTA?
The PTA has been an integral part of Richmond Park Primary School for many years and over that time we have raised thousands of pounds to improve the school facilities for all the children.
The school notify the PTA of projects they require funding for, these requests are then considered and agreed as appropriately by those parents present at the PTA meetings. Furthermore the PTA can also put their ideas forward as to what the money should be spent on.
How can you get involved?
We appreciate that time is precious, but being involved in the PTA is not a full time job, it doesn’t matter if you can’t attend every meeting however new faces bring new ideas! The offering of help before and during events is so valuable, but should you wish to commit a little more time you could always become a General member and take on a regular responsibility.
Our meetings are informal and for those of you with Pre-school children, you are more than welcome to bring them along to our after school meetings. Please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Many thanks for your continued support!
