"Parents strongly support the school. They value the welcoming environment in which their children learn effectively and feel happy."
Parent Teacher Association
The Down Ampney C of E Primary School PTA is a great way to bring together parents, teachers and others to support the school and make a difference for the children. As a registered charity, it provides an opportunity for everyone to work together to raise funds and is open to all parents and teachers even if they only have a small amount of time available to get involved. Our meetings are generally held in the evening twice per term in the school hall.
Regular events are organised throughout the year to raise funds that can be used to benefit our children. These may include events to mark things like Bonfire Night (we call it Spuds and Sparklers), Sausage Sizzle, Summer Fete. Whatever the occasion, everyone pitches in and the aim is to provide an enjoyable time for all whilst raising much needed funds that can be used by the school to help provide the best possible opportunities for the children. A recent example of PTA financial help to the school is funds donated to help purchase new laptops and play role equipment for Butterfly Class. Plus a new digital projector and screen. This has added to the amazing facilities available to our children in the school hall.
The Down Ampney Christmas Bazaar is an annual favourite and is organised in partnership with the Parochial Church Council, with funds raised being shared. Keep your eyes open for the event and come along. Father Christmas will be there! Will you?
If you feel you have a little time to spare and you’d like to get involved, please do not hesitate to contact the school office and they will be able to help you further. Minutes from our latest PTA meeting can be found below:
