"Overthorpe is more than a school - we are the heart of the community."
Overthorpe CofE Academy PTA was set up by a group of parents in September 2017. Its aim is to raise money for the school through the hosting of fun events and opportunities for the children that school budgets are sometimes no longer able to cover.
To raise money and support the school, the PTA holds regular events throughout the year, including clothing collections and jumble sales, stalls at the Christmas Fair and Summer Fair, discos, Easter egg hunts, raffles, movie nights, weekly tuck shops, and bake sales.
During the 2018/19 school year the money raised was used to refresh the school’s reading areas, supply pantomime refreshments for the children, buy classroom resources, provide equipment and support for the Lifelong Learners/STEM day, and transform an unused quad area at the heart of the school into an outdoor learning space.
The PTA is always on the lookout for new members and ideas, whether you would like to help on a regular basis, or just at a specific event.
If you would like to find out more, or get involved, please contact Keeley Loney in Our Neighbourhood Nest, or email the PTA at firstname.lastname@example.org.
