Welcome to FoSP (Friends of St Peter’s) or St Peter’s PTA as we are known by many! The aim of the PTA here at St Peter’s is to fundraise, build community and strengthen relationships between parents, carers, teachers and pupils.
We aim to raise funds for all the ‘extras’ that aren’t covered by the budget given to the school, but that make St Peter’s such a wonderful place to be. Over the years we have raised thousands of pounds and this money has been used to fund house trips, pay for Mathletics and Spellodrome subscriptions and provide equipment for the school. Last year saw us achieve the £65,000 needed for the new school playground and over the summer the playground was transformed into a fun, creative and exciting place for the children to play. This year our fundraising is for a new whole school library and we are looking to raise £20,000 in order for work to commence on this project.
We hold many events throughout the year in order to fundraise. Some of our highlights over the last few years have been the Summer and Christmas Fairs, Auction Night, Movie Night, the School Disco and Bridge to Bridge. Whilst all these events raise much needed funds for the school, they also provide an opportunity for building community too. We have many new and exciting events coming this year and would encourage all parents and carers to get involved, help out at an event or two and come along and enjoy them too!
Every parent is automatically a member of the St Peter’s PTA and one of the committee's main aims is to build strong community relationships. We want every parent to feel as welcome as we did when we joined the school and whilst we want to raise as much money as we can, we also want to enjoy our children’s school years.
We are always looking for people to come and join us on the PTA committee, so if you would like to get involved, please do email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
