The Parent Teachers Association at Ashford works tirelessly to support the school in fundraising initiatives. Throughout the year we hold fayres and discos as well as other social activities. The dates for this year’s events can be found in the calendar in the school Year Book.
The committee is always grateful for more helpers and committee members. If you have suggestions for fundraising initiatives or would like to become more involved in the committee, please contact the Chair of the committee via email firstname.lastname@example.org or through the school office.
The policy and procedure below has been compiled by the PTA for its members, active members of the committee and Trustees. It gives more in-depth explanation about the PTA, safety and procedural policies which are required for Charity organisations. If you have any questions that remain unanswered, please contact one of the committee members (Chair, Treasurer or Secretary) via the school office or speak to a member of school staff.
Over the last few years our fundraising efforts have enabled us to purchase: LearnPads, laptops, library books for new class libraries, dictionaries for each class, Guided Reading books for Juniors, a PA system, climbing frame for the playground and new PE equipment for the hall. We have also contributed towards the new playground markings.
In 2014 we launched our ICT fundraising project to help the school improve and develop the ICT resources available. We have now purchased 11 sets of LearnPads, a new projector and wall speakers for the hall and a set of 16 laptops. We are always looking for businesses and other organisations to help us provide more equipment, for our children to use in their everyday learning, and so to prepare them for their future schools and enable them to become highly competent employees or employers of the future! If you know of a company who would be interesting in helping us please contact us via email email@example.com or through the school office.
