Our PTA are a hardworking and dedicated group of parents and carers who play a vital part in raising funds for school and organising social events for the children, families and community of East and West Harptree, and the surrounding villages.
What we do: -
Look out for our in-school fundraising which focuses on; termly bake sales, refreshments at key events, school discos, craft competitions, personalised craft/gifts and bag drops.
Our larger events supported by the whole community include; Christmas wreath making, the Christmas Market, village trails, raffles, our joint Summer Fete with the church as well as the Village Craft and Flower Show, which kindly donates monies to the school.

Where the funds raised go: -
Funds raised support and enhance our children’s learning experience in the classroom providing unique resources, artefacts, workshops as well as trips and visits to support the curriculum.
Funds have provided an improved outdoor learning and social environment, with shelters, unique crafted seating and more recently, £400 worth of outdoor play equipment.
Furthermore, the tickets for the yearly trip to the Christmas pantomime are funded with the money raised through the PTA.
Children, staff and our volunteer parents and carers, highlight this as one of their much loved and anticipated events of the year.
