Welcome to the Sheldwich Primary School PTA (also known as 'Supporters of Sheldwich').
We have an extremely active parent/teacher/staff association at Sheldwich Primary School who organise many events throughout the year, to raise additional funds, enabling the school to purchase the ‘extras’ for the pupils.
For the academic year 2017 - 2018, our committee is made up as follows:
Chair - Tara Blake-Harbord
Secretary - Ruth Twynam
Treasurer - Leanne Davies
Lydia McCorriston (staff)
Charlotte Hayward (parent)
Soshanna Hayhoe (parent)
Claire Roberts (parent)
Sveti Hristov (parent)
Over recent years the PTA have been able to help with the cost of our pantomime visit, provided large outdoor play activities such as the pirate ship and an outdoor classroom, bought thousands of pounds of new resources, equipped our ICT suite with 30 computers and headphones and bought hundreds of books for the junior and infant libraries.
They have helped the school pay for the outdoor dining space including picnic tables, covered the cost of our Year 6 Leavers' hoodies and books.
At the moment the committee are in talks with Mrs Garrett to decide what we would like to save up for next.
Fund raising events take place throughout the year for pupils and parents to participate in. As well as the traditional Christmas and Summer Fair, the PTA organises parties for pupils and an Easter Egg Hunt.
If you have any ideas you would like suggest to our PTA, please contact us in the office or message the PTA on their Facebook page.
