PTA About Us

Bishop’s Tachbrook School PTA is a relaxed and sociable group of parents and staff.  We coordinate a wide range of fund-raising events that bring all parts of the school community together to raise funds for things that cannot be covered by the school’s budget.  In doing so, we aim to enrich children’s education and provide lasting memories for children and families during the primary school years.

How we make a difference

2017-2018 target: £10,000

The PTA has planned a full calendar of fun fundraising events this year. Working together with the staff, we have a list of items the PTA would like to purchase with money raised including:

  • Additional cameras for classroom use
  • Guided reading book sets for use by every class
  • New stage lighting equipment for drama and school productions

An amount will be invested into purchasing small items which are used for a variety of PTA events including a new BBQ.

2016-2017 amount raised: £12,956 

The outgoing committee led by Michele Turner McEvoy held many, well attended events including, School Disco’s and Film Nights for the kids, a Quiz Night for the adults and the Christmas Fayre and Food Fest for all the family. The money raised has been spent on:

  • Hand chimes for KS2
  • Binoculars for use in Science lessons and the Y5 Space Camp
  • Outdoor play equipment for Reception
  • Creation of two all weather areas for role play, developing curiosity and storytelling for EYFS and KS1

An amount of money was reinvested into the PTA with the purchase of a new shed plus storage and a gazebo.
