Parent Teacher Association (PTA)

As a parent or carer of a pupil at the school, you are automatically a member of the Parrs Wood PTA, the Parent Teacher Association.

The PTA is a charity separate to the school and its purpose is to foster the school community and to raise money for extra equipment and activities which cannot be funded out of the usual school budget.

Supporting the PTA gives you the opportunity to meet other parents/carers and teaching staff to share ideas and work together to support our school and have fun, both by supporting the staff at educational evenings and organising fund-raising activities for parents, staff and pupils of the school.

Our major fund-raising events have included quiz nights, an Iftar event, stalls at the Didsbury Festival and other events. We also support various school events to celebrate pupils’ achievements and talents and to welcome new parents, carers and students.

The money we have raised has enabled us to lend considerable financial support to the school. We support the school hardship fund, an essential resource for many of our families during these times of austerity. A long term project is to redevelop the seating areas around school to provide more comfortable facilities for the children during their breaks and lunchtimes.

We can offer such generous support to the school due to the help of many parents, carers and friends who give up their time so willingly to assist us in our efforts. It is this support that makes us so successful, and we encourage you to contribute by becoming an active member.

The Committee

There are three elected members (Chair, Treasurer and Secretary) at any one time plus additional committee members and a wider circle of volunteer parents/carers.
