Who are the PTA?
We are the parents, carers and guardians of the pupils who attend The Sherwood School
What do we do?
We raise funds to enable the pupils to enjoy a better experience at school
What have we done?
We organise and raise funds through the Christmas Fair, the School Disco, the Summer Fair and the Christmas and Summer raffles, enabling us to:
- Sponsor the Easter Hat Parade. Last year the PTA acquired sponsorship from Sainsbury’s Tooting, who provided all the Easter eggs, which were given to the children as prizes. This year we arranged the donation from MS Business Consultants.
- Buy a PA system for use at outdoor events
- Donate £500 to the school to purchase playground equipment
- Fund the repotting and replanting of flowers and herbs around the school
- Sponsor the Year 6 Leavers Disco
- Sponsor the Jolly Jam Jar Competition
What can you do?
- READ all your ParentMail messages and notes from school
- ATTEND events
- GIVE your child an item to bring when we appeal for donations. If each child brings 1 item, we have 450 items, meaning we don’t spend money we raised for your child to buy prizes or foodstuff for events.
- If you work for Barclays or Marks and Spencer let us know - we can increase our fundraising through you!
- VOLUNTEER to set up, clear up, organise, plan events - 30 minutes, an hour, any time is time well spent!
Do you want The Sherwood School to be a fun and exciting school for your children?
