At Chevening, we’re really lucky to have a very involved and supportive group of parents and a very active PTA. The PTA’s main function is to fundraise. We organise various activities and events for both children and parents throughout the academic year and use the money raised to fund various requests the school may have.
In the last academic year, we successfully raised over £24,000.
Throughout the year we organise various events such as the Christmas Fair, Annual Ball, Easter Funday, Movie Nights, School Disco and the Summer Fair. If you’d like to assist with any of these functions, or wish to contact us, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Over the past few years we have helped fund the purchase and maintenance of two new minibuses for the school, interactive smart boards for classrooms, replacement reading schemes, pantomime trips and the refurbishment of the school swimming pool.
At Chevening, all parents are automatically part of the PTA and we do encourage people to be as actively involved as they can. Please do come to our PTA meetings that are held each term; being part of the PTA is a great way to meet other parents in the school, experience first-hand the wonderful school community and a rewarding way to volunteer.
The PTA Team:
Chair - vacancy
Treasurer - Graham Stoneman
Secretary - Emma Parmley
The PTA held their AGM on Tuesday 8th October at which Heidi Brooks formally stepped down after serving her three year term as PTA Chair and thus creating a vacancy.
Fran Sanderson also officially stepped down from her position as PTA Treasurer. Graham Stoneman (Father to Y4 and Y1 pupils) was nominated, and officially elected as the new PTA Treasurer and we are very grateful to have Graham on-board.
Both Heidi and Fran have been huge assets to the PTA over the last 3 years and their leadership, hard work and commitment have enabled us to raise significant funds for our school. We are very pleased that Heidi and Fran will continue their involvement with the PTA as official committee members.
To ensure that the great work of the PTA continues, we are actively looking to fill the role of PTA Chairperson. This leadership position is essential to ensure the PTA remains effective at raising crucial funds for our school. The role could also be done by two people sharing the role as a Chair and Vice Chair and will be supported by the officers (Secretary and Treasurer), and an active committee.
If you would like to be considered, or would like any further information, please speak with Heidi Brooks or myself and we would be happy to provide further information on the functions of the role.
