The PTA is the Parent-Teacher Association which supports the school in a variety of ways. As well as organising fun events, the PTA funds the Year 6 leavers treat (usually a day trip with activities), Christmas class gifts and school competition prizes.
Some of the fundraising events arranged by the PTA include:
- School discos
- Seasonal events such as the Christmas Bazaar & Summer Fete
- Quiz nights
The PTA also help out at school events, providing teas and coffees for assemblies and refreshments on Sports Day.
The PTA is a registered charity.
The PTA have been able to donate some significant funds to RPS in recent years for initiatives which have had a direct impact on the pupils experience.
In 2019 the PTA donated £4.1k to RPS to renovate and repair the popular Disco apparatus within the school playground.
In 2020 a further donation of £3.4k was spent on equipment for the ICT suite including ipads for use by pupils and a projector.
The PTA successful applied to be part of the Co-operative Community Fund, which ran from October 2019 to October 2020. The application was for new outdoor play equipment. A donation of £3.6k was received from the Co-operative in November 2020 and the School Council will be deciding how this money will be spent to enhance the playground.
