A BIG WELCOME TO ALL OF YOU TO OUR FAIRLIGHT PARENT-TEACHER ASSOCIATION!

  • What is the Fairlight PTA?

    Fairlight Parents’ and Teachers’ Association is an organisation for our school community to support the children of Fairlight Primary & Nursery School.

    What is our aim?

    Our stated aim is to facilitate educational opportunities for the children at our school. Our primary activity is fundraising, to support our school with resources that help the education of the children. We also put on events for the enjoyment of the children and for our adults to get to know each other.

    Why is the PTA a charity?

    We are a registered charity, which allows us to access grants from charitable trusts on behalf of the school. Under current laws, state schools like Fairlight cannot access these funds, whilst private schools and academies can.

    What do we do?

    Prior to the pandemic, we organised annual Christmas & Summer Fairs, and Hallowe’en & Spring Discos. These are things we would like to bring back better than ever! We also organise smaller events, such as bric-a-brac, book and jumble sales. We sell Christmas Cards that children can design. We are hoping to start running other events for parents, such as quiz nights and pudding auctions. What events would you like?

    Can I join? Can I help?

    Yes, and yes! You are already a member of the PTA by being a parent or staff member! We are looking for new members to join our PTA committee. You get a say in what we do and can also stand for secretary, chairperson, and treasurer. Just fill in the application form on the back of this flyer! You can also just contact us to help as a volunteer for our events – either helping with preparations or on the day!

    How to contact us!

    You can leave a message expressing your interest at robertwhatman@hotmail.com or by text at 07793 522179. Or come along to meet us in person at our next meet and mingle event at Mojo Café!

HOW TO GET INVOLVED!

All parents, carers, governors and staff in our school community are automatically members of the PTA. We are always happy to meet you and don't be afraid to approach any of us in the playground to say hello!

  • Join the PTA committee, elected each autumn at our AGM. We are always excited for new parents, carers and teaching staff to join us.
  • Join and help with an Events team: they are always eager to hear from anyone who has even a spare hour to help set something up, sell tickets, pick up some supplies or can be there on the day!
  • Fund-raising: we are always interested in hearing from anyone who has ideas and contacts in fundraising, event management and business or entertainment who might be able to lend their professional expertise or support.
  • Sponsored events: do you have an idea for a sponsored event? Would you like to raise money on our behalf? Let us know!
  • Local companies are invited especially to donate prizes to our fair raffles, in return for a spot on our posters and a shout-out to all of our fair visitors.
  • Everyone who comes to one of our events is helping us to raise much needed funds.
