Welcome to Fircroft's Parent, Carers and Teachers Association (Fircroft PTA).
We are an organisation with 2 key roles:
- To raise valuable funds to support the education of all children at Fircroft Primary School
- To encourage and facilitate social activity between parents and carers, their children and the staff
We have a very active Parent Teacher Association at Fircroft Primary School which aims to further strengthen the positive relationship between the staff and the parents and carers and their children.
As a parent or carer of a child at Fircroft, you are automatically members of the Parent Teacher Association (PTA). You don't have to be invited to join in – we warmly welcome everyone, and very much value the skills, passion and experience of the whole of our school community. A true sense of community is at the heart of all we do and we always work in close conjunction with Mrs. York, the Headteacher.
The PTA coordinates a number of events throughout the year starting with a picnic for the new children and parents before they even start in their Reception class, so that there are a few familiar faces on their first day at school. This is followed by events such as; International Food Evening, Quiz Nights, Family Bingo, Wine Tasting, Family Ping Pong, DJ nights, The Summer Fair, The Christmas Fair, School Discos, coffee mornings and regular cake and food sales. We rely on volunteers to help run all our events successfully...so please get involved. All our events raise funds which benefit all the children at Fircroft.
The PTA supports the school throughout the academic year in a wide variety of ways, such as: subsidising school trips and residential school journeys, clarinet tuition, PE uniforms, school equipment and whole school performing arts events to name but a few. We are committed to raising funds so that the school can provide opportunities which would otherwise not be possible.
These pages have been written with the aim of giving you all the information you will need about the PTA and how you can support our work.
Thank you for your continued support!
