About the PTA

Ramsbury Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is a registered charity made up of parents and staff, whose main purpose is to fund raise for additional activities and equipment for the children.

A meeting is held at the beginning of the academic year where the fundraising project for the year is decided. This could for example be play equipment or enrichment activities and determines the amount that needs to be raised. In previous years we have raised in the region of a fantastic £10,000!

This year, the PTA are looking to fundraise £10,000 to refurbish children’s facilities and resources.

 

PTA Events

With COVID-19 doing its best to prevent us raising much-needed funds for our wonderful school in the traditional face-to-face way, your class reps are very keen to find alternative ways of raising money to help school bridge the gap.

We are going to take a two-pronged approach to fundraising this year.

  1. For the children – we will organise COVID-secure fundraising events over the course of the school year, to build a sense of fun in these strange times
  2. For the adults – we will organise a few fundraising events so we can have some fun. But, critically, we will also ask for cash donations over the course of the year.

 

Coming soon…

The PTA will be producing and selling a 2021 Ramsbury calendar. If you would like to sponsor the production of this, please get in touch with Class 1 Rep, Rachel Dowdell.

Corporate Charity Match Funding

Many UK companies will match any donation their employees make to a registered charity. For example, they may match the amount that an employee has raised by running a cake stall for the school.
