Jeavons Wood PTA is a registered charity made up of parents, carers and teachers who meet to discuss ways to raise additional funds to provide extra activities and equipment for the children of Jeavons Wood Primary School and Jeavons Wood Pre-School.  All parents who have children at Jeavons Wood Primary School are members of the PTA unless they choose to opt out.  If you would like to formally opt out, please do so in writing to our email address jeavonswoodpta@gmail.com.

 

The objective of the PTA is to advance the education of pupils in the school, in particular by:

  • Developing effective relationships between the staff, parents and others associated with the school
  • Engaging in activities or providing facilities or equipment which support the school and advance the education of the pupils.

 

Our PTA is about much more than simply fundraising. The PTA exists to provide closer links between home and school and it is an excellent way to bring staff, parents and friends together socially in support of the school, working towards a common goal. It is fun too - just ask any of the Committee members or PTA helpers. You can read our full constitution here.

 

Aims of the PTA include:

  • To arrange fun activities and events for the children and parents
  • To provide opportunities that will welcome and encourage parents and carers to become part of the Jeavons Wood school community
  • To raise funds for activities and resources that the school wouldn’t be able to provide for the children through the school budget
  • To oversee and organise charity events.
  • To have an eye open for ways in which the wider community can become involved with the school

 

 

Fundraising, events and contributions

We are fortunate at our school to have an active PTA which has been running since the school first opened in September 2009.  The majority of our funds are raised through a variety of events which run throughout the year, some examples of fundraising events and activities include:

  • School discos
  • Christmas cards and gifts
  • Easter trails and hunts
  • Summer Fete
  • Mothers/Fathers Day Gift shop
  • Pre-loved Uniform sales
  • Sponsored events
  • Family Bingo
  • Art Exhibitions
  • Cake sales
  • Coffee mornings

 

Not only do these events provide fun and enjoyment for the school children and their families, they also raise funds to deliver significant contributions towards school activities and resources. Some of the contributions include:

  • iPads for all classes - 1 between 2 children across the school
  • Trim Trail
  • Play House
  • Annual Christmas Pantomime
  • Christmas crackers and squash at the school’s Christmas lunch
  • Ice-pops on Sports Day
  • Contributing towards an indoor PA system

We really couldn’t achieve what we do without the behind-the-scenes help that we receive. If you would like to be more involved, you can volunteer to be a helper at individual events, bring in a cake for a cake sale or simply come to events and enjoy them! There are many ways you can help and support the PTA. It doesn’t matter if you can’t help on a regular basis, ALL volunteers are welcome.

Jeavons Wood PTA has Charity Status

 

Registered Charity Number: 1158028

 

We have adopted the PTA-UK model constitution which provides formal recognition of the PTA. Its charitable objects gives us a legal status which is publicly acknowledged. One of the key benefits of charitable status is the ability to seek funds from grant making trusts, national and local companies and through Payroll and Company Match Giving Schemes. It also allows us to be exempt from the payment of income and corporation tax and we are eligible to apply for Gift Aid.
