Who are we?

One of this school’s key strengths is the well supported Parent & Teacher Association.  By having children at the school you are automatically a member of the PTA. 

Our committee is made up of parent and carer volunteers whose primary aim is to raise money for our children's school.  We also hold social events for pupils and/ or parents throughout the year.

As the school budget becomes increasingly restricted our fundraising efforts become more essential, not just for the extras, but also for everyday school equipment.

Parents, carers and family members are all welcomed here at Isleham, and becoming an active PTA member is one of the many  ways that you can support your child’s education.

The PTA meets regularly each term and meetings are open to anyone with an interest in the school – you don’t need to be committee member or helper to attend meetings.

How do we raise money?

The PTA organise a number of events throughout the year:

  • Family swim sessions
  • Summer Concert
  • Cake sales

We also organise the end of year disco. 

In 2019-20 the PTA raised almost £10,000 for smartscreens, and is in 2021 funding Year 6 leavers' tops and events, and a triathlon for all year groups.

We also help the school with the running of the swimming pool: our membership fees and money raised through fundraising go towards the general upkeep and running costs of the pool, which, as you can imagine, are significant. Our committee also assist with the cleaning and maintenance of the pool during the summer holidays.

Many primary schools have lost their swimming pools in recent years, so we are extremely proud of ours, its members and our committee who work hard to ensure that our pool remains open and a real asset to the school. Having a pool on site means that for some of the Autumn term and all of the Summer term, the children have lessons at least once a week.  

Families belonging to the PTA can use the pool twice a week after school, on Saturday mornings, and in the school holidays during the swimming season (approx. May to October).  For a price of £20 for the whole family you can attend as many out of school sessions as you like.

How can I help?
