The parent “P. T. A” group

The “Friends of St John’s” is the parent teacher association (PTA) for our school. As parents you are automatically members of the Friends group. Our main aim is to fundraise to support the school in providing extra equipment and stimulating experiences which will benefit the experiences of ALL our children

Through fundraising, the Friends have been able to provide:

  • Digital cameras for every class to support learning
  • Annual Christmas pantomime trips and performances for all children
  • High visibility vests for each class to ensure children are safe when out on trips
  • Contributions to the cost of class trips, particularly more expensive trips such as to the Jorvik museum in York

In addition to this a small group of the parents formed a Playground Project Group and raised a substantial amount of money for the re-development of all three playgrounds.


How to get involved

We meet fortnighly, on a Tuesday morning from 9.00-10.00 am in the school hall to plan future events and fundraising. Young children are welcome and tea, coffee, and biscuits are served.  It’s a great way to get involved in the life of the school and make new friends.

You do not need any special skills- just lots of enthusiasm!  If you can’t get attend the meetings there are a number of ways you can help and get involved – from designing posters to providing contacts for raffle prizes and helping out at events.

We are so pleased to be resuming our Friends meetings after 18 months of Covid restrictions. Our first meeting is Tuesday 21st September and will take place in the hall straight after drop off at 9:00am. We really hope you will be able to join us to plan events for the term ahead.
