Northfield’s PTA was established in order to encourage parents to take an active role in the life of the school.
All parents are automatically members of the PTA and we look forward to seeing you at one of our half-termly meetings.
The PTA meetings provide an opportunity for parents and key staff within the school to meet and discuss proposed developments and changes within school. It is also an opportunity for staff and parents to meet and discuss wider educational issues and how these may affect our school. Our discussions are often focussed upon how we as a school can support you as parents in supporting your child’s learning at home.
The PTA also has a role to play in fundraising and this year has raised funds to support some very worthwhile projects within school which have been of real benefit to our learners. A major success was our Summer Fair in June 2016 where £3,000 was raised!
We meet six times a year. Meetings normally run from 7pm until 8.30pm and are held in our Library Resource Centre. All issues are discussed in an informal and friendly atmosphere.
Our meeting schedule for 2016-17 is as follows:
- Wednesday 28 September 2016
- Thursday 17 November 2016
- Thursday 19 January 2017
- Thursday 16 March 2017
- Thursday 27 April 2017
- Thursday 15 June 2017
Other important dates for your diary:
- Friday 24 March 2017 – PTA Quiz Night
- Summer Fair Saturday - 24 June 2017 1pm to 4pm
It is really important that this partnership continues. Please get in touch with us at school if you are interested in joining us at our next meeting.
