Knaphill Schools PTA is run on a voluntary basis by parents/guardians/carers of children in the school and by school staff.
All parents, carers, guardians and staff are automatically members of Knaphill Schools PTA and are welcome to attend meetings.
Knaphill Schools PTA is a registered charity and works solely to raise funds for Knaphill Schools, primarily by staging fundraising events, which are used to purchase additional resources, which are not available within the standard school budget.
If you would like to get involved in Knaphill Schools PTA or wish to know more please contact us or speak to any of the team members at school.
What We Do
In the 2015-16 academic year, Knaphill Schools PTA raised approximately £16,000 for the school! This is a phenomenal amount of money for a school PTA to raise and we are really proud of what we have achieved.
During 2016/17 academic year, the money was spent on some more iPads for the children so that there is enough for a whole year group to use them at one time; to improve the eco garden so that it is used more during lessons and to improve our French resources for the children with a new French scheme called Jolie Ronde.
This year (2017/18) we have set a target of £20,000…
How we do it
We carefully plan a programme of events to include children, parents, school staffand the community. Some of the events are huge fundraisers and involve lots of planning and help, such as the Summer Fete and Christmas Fair, others are newand we have no idea how much they will raise, but it’s the fun in taking partthat counts and any funds raised is a bonus!
We are always looking for new ideas, so please yell if you would like to suggestor help with any.
We also raise money through more simpler routes such as:
- My School Printing
- Co-op Local Community Fund
We have a social media presence on Facebook and have recently launched a brand new website www.knaphillschoolspta.org.uk which has all of our events, newsletters and important dates on.
You can also contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave us an old fashioned message via the school office.
