Welcome to the Parents & Teachers Association (PTA)
We are fortunate at Quainton School to have a PTA that has been an integral part of the school community for many years. In its time, it has raised thousands of pounds, which has been spent on equipment, resources and experiences to enhance our children’s education and the school’s facilities, which would not be covered by the normal school budget.
Our PTA is about much more than simply fundraising; it exists to provide closer links between the local community, home and school and it is an excellent way to bring staff, parents and carers together socially in support of the school, working towards a common goal.
All parents and carers are automatically members of the PTA. We look forward to hearing your ideas and welcoming you to future meetings and events. You can email us on firstname.lastname@example.org or speak to any member of the committee.
The PTA manages a stock of secondhand uniform. We endeavour to have a stall available at the start of each term, plus individual requests can be organised by contacting us via the PTA email address.
New school uniform can be purchased through our preferred supplier ‘Different Class School Wear’.
The PTA will arrange for a pop-up shop at the school at appropriate events or orders can be made through their website www.differentclassschoolwear.co.uk or by telephone.
The PTA makes a small commission from sales of new school uniform.
The majority of our funds are raised through events. In recent times, we have organised school discos and film nights, Christmas and Summer fairs, treasure hunts, Easter activities, bingo nights and theatre trips. We try to ensure there is always something to look forward to.
We raise money in other ways to - the sale of Christmas cards designed by the children, clothes donation schemes, and commission earned on school uniform purchases and year 6 leavers sweatshirts.
Parents and community members can donate time, money, items for sale, raffle prizes or auction lots or offers of services and skills.
We also raise money through Gift Aid, company-matched giving schemes and our 100 Club.
