Langtree Community School PTA
Our Parent Teacher Association is an organisation of parents and Staff. Our PTA is best known for its fundraising work and provides an opportunity for parents, staff and pupils to get together.
We raise money through events and try to hold one main school event each school term, for example Christmas Fair, Summer Fair, Easter Egg Hunt, Halloween Parties, Sponsored walks, Non-Uniform days and many more.
We are always on the lookout for new fundraising ideas!
The money raised by the PTA is intended to provide ‘extras’ not already provided by the schools main income.
Here are some of the things we have fundraised for over the years:-
Large playtime sandpit
Netball and Football Kits
Years 5/6 Residential subsidy
All weather surface for the play area
Fencing and turf for the new Quiet Area
Small world area for the children to use with their toys
Magnetic board games for playtimes
New school sign
Signs for the wildlife area
Wooden playhouse for Class F’s garden
Training bibs for F/KS1 Football club
There are many different ways you can help with the PTA whether you have lots of time to offer or not. If you cannot commit to a big job, look out for things you can do less frequently e.g. run a stall at a fayre, bake for a cake stall, donate requested items - and you can always support events by simply turning up!

News of recent and forthcoming events
Last year we managed to raise a whopping
for our children and their school and at our last meeting we have made plans for the next school year.
We start this year’s fundraising off with a Halloween Party for the children which is on Friday 4th November in the Parish Hall.
After Half Term, the children will be designing their Christmas cards ready for parents to proof and order online.
We will be finishing off the term’s fundraising with our annual Christmas Fair on Friday 9th December in the Parish Hall, where there will be fun and games for all and a visit from a special man dressed in red.
We have started making plans for this year’s fundraising and our next items we plan to fundraise for is a Digeridoo session for the children in Class One and new cameras for each class which they can use in their everyday work.
