What The PTA Does:
Have you ever wonderered what the PTA stands for or what it does for Rochford? PTA is the Parent-Teacher Association and they support the school in a variety of ways, some of the events arranged by the PTA include:
- Various School Discos; Halloween, Christmas, Valentines
- Christmas Bazaar & Summer Fete – Various raffles with some wonderful prizes
- Virtual Balloon Race
At the beginning of 2018 the PTA were informed that the Disco apparatus (which is currently within the school playground) was in need of repair and improvements.
Then when the children returned to school in September, we were advised that due to the cold weather which occurred earlier that year, the school had to reduce usage of the equipment.
Through fundraising efforts at beginning of 2018, we were able to hand over a cheque from the PTA for £5000 towards the renovation.
Then at the end of December 2018, the PTA had the pleasure of handing over an additional £2500 to the school. It is intended that repairs will commence in early 2019.

How to support, join or simply just give some time to the PTA:
We are always looking for volunteers to help us physically with our events or even just supporting us by providing raffle prizes or advertising (printing or having an event estate agent board on your own property).
If you are interested in knowing more and getting involved with the PTA please feel free to contact your class representative or alternatively one of the members on the bottom of this page.
We have been fortunate to work with some major companies within Rochford and Southend to support our school through the ways of sponsorship, donations, discounts and event attendance. We would welcome any additional companies to join us in promoting our fundraising events for 2019.
