Our PTA is a Registered Charity No : 1161619.
Our PTA is a very successful group and organizes endless fundraising activities for the school. In the school year 2016-17 they raised a massive £8115.66! They funded new playground equipment.
Alongside this they also arrange fun events that are free of charge.
All staff, parents, carers and families are automatically part of our PTA and we welcome the support of anyone who may be able to offer a little help. If anyone is interested in helping out, please contact our school office on 0113 2853000.
CAN YOU HELP THE PTA SECURE MATCH FUNDING FROM YOUR WORKPLACE FOR THE GALA OR ANY OTHER EVENT?
If you work for an organisation that has a match funding policy, any money you raise could be matched by your employer. We understand that the high street banks, building societies, supermarkets and large corporations are likely to do match funding. We have been successful twice in getting the funding from one of our parents who works at Barclays Bank as well as another parent who works for Lloyds Bank. We would be ever so grateful if you could ask your employer if they have a match funding scheme, or if they are willing to match fund any of our events. Please let us know if you can think your employer would be happy to support our school.
Hillary Holmes, PTA Chair says “PTA’s and similar organizations can sometimes have a reputation of being cliquey but that really isn’t the case at Drighlington Primary. We are very welcoming and always like to see a new face. Whatever time and help someone can offer is very much appreciated. It isn’t just limited to mums who help out either – we’ve had dads, grandparents and members of the community who aren’t linked to the school helping out in the past. The added bonus is we have our planning meetings at the Spotted Cow!!”
