Welcome to the PTA section - supporting the school, enriching the education of all our children
Introducing the Parent Teacher Association (PTA)....
GEMS Didcot Primary Academy is a new school, but in a short space of time, we have established an active PTA that is becoming an integral part of the school community.
The PTA exists to provide closer links between home and school, and is a great way to bring staff, parents and friends together socially in support of the school, ultimately enhancing our children's educational experience, working towards a common goal. It's fun too! Hard work at times, but mostly fun - just ask any member of the PTA Committee or helpers! The current PTA Committee is made up of parents and members of the school staff, the Principal, an elected Chair, Vice Chair, Treasurer and Secretary. Meetings are held on a monthly basis, dates are organised well in advance and promoted on the school website and Facebook page.
You don't have to attend the meetings to be part of the PTA - as much as we love welcoming new faces, it really is a case of 'many hands make light work'! So how can you get involved? Offering to help before events is so valuable. It doesn't matter if you can't help on a regular basis, or even if you can't come in to school to help at the events, there are always little jobs that can be done from home, e.g wrapping gifts and preparing raffle tickets. We really couldn't achieve what we do without the unseen 'army of help' that exists in the school.
Following the success of the last family disco, the PTA are hosting another disco on Friday 8th February from 6.30pm to 8.00pm. The disco is open to children from Reception upwards, and the children must be accompanied by a parent. Please bring your completed booking form and correct payment to the school office in a named envelope, and your tickets will be sent home in your child's book bag.
Numbers are strictly limited to 250 due to fire regulations, and there will be no tickets available to purchase on the night. The last disco was a sell out, so book soon to avoid disappointment! If you are available to help the PTA on the evening, please let us know in the office.
If you would like further information, please feel free to pop us an email, speak to us in the playground, or have a look at our new Gems Didcot Primary PTA Facebook page.
If you have any suggestions, fund raising event ideas, want to volunteer to help, or just want more information about Gems Didcot Primary Academy PTA, then please complete the form below. Many thanks!
