Parent Teacher Association

Sandford PTA is an inclusive and respectful collection of parents, teachers and friends with the aim to support the school community via events and also to fund raise in order to provide the children of Sandford school with extra opportunities.

Sandford PTA is a registered charity and has a formal committee with four positions; Chair, Vice chair, Treasurer and Secretary. We hold an ADM once a year where committee roles are appointed. We subscribe to Parent Kind for insurances, guidance and our constitution.

Sandford PTA also includes a large group of parents , carers and teachers who provide support in a variety of ways throughout the year. Everyone contributes in a way that suits them best, with no expectations or commitments. We meet as a PTA group, normally in a local pub, about once a term, and we also communicate regularly throughout the year via a PTA Whats App group. EVERYONE IS WELCOME; new ideas, skills and approaches are always wanted.

Sandford PTA communicate events via the school Teachers2Parents app, Sandford school Facebook group, class whats app groups, text messages and the school newsletter. We use an online volunteer app to support parents to be able to participate in fund raising events (no grabbing you on the school playground!), and this has been very successful in supporting a greater variety of participation.

Each year we meet with the school council to gather the voices of the children which informs our fund raising events and how profits are spent. We also seek and welcome parent and carer feedback.

If you have an questions, queries or want to get involved please do not hesitate to contact us.

We look forward to seeing you at our up-coming events.
