Welcome to St John Fisher RC Primary School PTA page
We are passionate about our school and helping the children be the best they can be. Over the years we have raised money to help the school in numerous ways. All our parents, carers, guardians and staff are automatically members of St John Fisher PTA and are always welcome to attend meetings.
We raise money through fun events and initiatives but are always looking for new fundraising ideas and opportunities.
The St John Fisher Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is simply a group of parents and teachers who meet from time to time to arrange fundraising events which benefit pupils, parents and staff at St John Fisher RC Primary School.
The PTA spends its money to enrich the children’s education.
Over the years we have contributed towards / purchased:
- Subsidised school trips
- Outdoor play equipment in EYFS
This Year’s Projects
This year’s project is to fund additional outdoor equipment for the Key Stage 1 playground.
