Welcome to the Sutton Green PTA homepage
WHAT IS THE PTA?
The PTA is formed from volunteer parents and the teachers at the school. It takes the form of a committee with chairperson, treasurer, secretary and general committee members. All teachers are members of the PTA and a member of the school staff tries to join us for each meeting.
WHAT DO WE DO?
We arrange various events throughout the year; some for the children and some for everyone. Over the last year we have had children’s discos, Christmas and Easter Bingos also Race and Comedy Nights, but our major fundraising event of the year is our Summer Fair.
WHAT DO WE SPEND OUR FUNDS ON?
In the past we have funded learning through play equipment for the Reception children’s outside play area, gardening equipment, pop-up gazebos for use at Sports Days and other outdoor events, classroom resources, a new sound system for the hall and donations towards transportation for school trips.
This year we have funded part of the whole school trip to the pantomime, purchased the year 6 summer house and we are looking to purchase further equipment for the outside space.
CAN YOU JOIN THE PTA?
Anyone is welcome to come and join us; currently we have about twenty regular members who help organise the many events throughout the year. We normally have a meeting every 6-8 weeks usually in the Chimneys Pub, so nothing is too formal, it’s a good excuse for a night out, a chat and of course we do remember to discuss the PTA Agenda.
If you are unable to come to the meetings, but have a spare half hour and wish to help at any of the events, your time will be gratefully accepted. We can always use an extra pair of hands!

Our school is also signed up to TheGivingMachine, which is a great way to raise money without having to spend a penny more than you would normally. So, click on the link below, join TheGivingMachine and choose to support our school.
