Who are the PTA?

The PTA consists of parents and staff who work together to raise funds to provide resources that benefit all of the children at Barker’s Lane.

The PTA meet regularly to organise events and to get ideas for future fund raising activities. We need lots of different skills, support and ideas. All are welcome to come along to meetings. Dates are posted on the school calendar.

Ms Rachel Banks is Chair of the PTA, Ms Carole Jones is Vice Chair and Mr Simon Hill is Treasurer.

The position of Secretary is vacant.

How did the children benefit in 2017-18?

Just under £8000 funded 19 Chrome Books and a charging trolley, 4 laptops, iPad apps and practical maths resources across the school.

What are we fund raising for this year?

To support the further development of digital competency skills, the school would like more iPads and funds for apps.

Fundraising Update

February 2019 – The PTA have already funded 22 new iPads and credit for apps which the children are just beginning to use. At our last meeting, it was agreed to fund a further 21 chrome books and another charging trolley. This news was very well received by our digital leaders in school and will enable even more access to digital equipment. Many thanks to our members for organising events and parents for the support you give.
