HOW CAN YOU HELP YOUR CHILD'S SCHOOL AND PTA

First, you need to understand the PTA's goal. Too many people think of the PTA as the "school bank". They just raise funds, buy things and distribute money.

This couldn't be further from the truth!   PTAs support student learning too! 

You, as a parent or carer of a child attending our school are automatically a PTA member and should be involved as much as possible.


Now, how do you support student learning? Here are some specific ways you can help:

 

  • Find out about the School Improvement Plan. What areas is the school (Headteacher and staff) targeting for the year. Find out how you can help.
  • Learn about school activities where parents can involve themselves. Is there a reading program? What about an organised extramural after school club that can be parent run?
  • What about trips? Can you offer your help?
  • Studies show that parents who are involved in their children's education have students with greater success.
  • Contribute to the school's newsletter.
  • Find out if parents are struggling with English as a Second Language (ESL) encourage them to join Mrs Bali on Monday afternoons for an informal chat and to find out what's happening in school.
  • There are a lot of ways that you can support student learning. Brainstorm with your fellow parents, teachers and school administration.
  • Give us your ideas and suggestions for fund raising and getting involved.
  • All parents are encouraged to contribute to major fundraising by helping to organise events, making donations, helping on stalls and most important of all - attending.  We cannot do it without your valuable support!
  • Join the PTA committee we urgently need new committee members.

Finally.......

  • We know people's time is valuable and we appreciate everything you do no matter how small your contribution may be.  Your involvement is for the benefit of not only your child but all Fixby school's children!
