What does the PTA do?    

The Parent Teacher Association raises between £2,000 and £5,000 each year, providing funding for a variety of projects within St Nicholas School which enhance the children’s experience at the school. The fundraising events aim to be fun for the children (and hopefully some adults too!), while giving the children a sense of pride in their school's community spirit and, of course, raising some extra money.

Over the past few years, the PTA’s donations to the school have included these treats:

Year 5 'Robot Day'

Floodlights for the High 5/Netball pitch.

A new strip for the school football team.

The Mini-Beasts mosaic and sensory garden in the Key Stage 1 playground (near the entrance gate for Years 1 and 2).

A contribution towards the cookery equipment in the Technology Suite.

A greenhouse, wheelbarrow and accessories for the Gardening Club

Indoor wet-play equipment for every class for rainy day and outdoor play equipment


Annually, the PTA pay for:

A leavers' treat for Year 6 pupils

The school panto at Christmas/New Year


The PTA organises refreshments at Sports Days, cake sales, Christmas Cafes, events such as a Christmas Fayre, Family Games events and 'Nic Stock' in the summer term, 'Bag2School,' (a clothing/textile recycling initiative which is held at least once a year) and sort out and sell on second hand school uniform.  They also coordinate initiatives where Reception pupils design their own tea towels at the end of the school year and all pupils design their own Christmas cards/mugs. 

If these events and activities are to be successful, they need support from parents either by attending events or by encouraging their child to take part. PTA events cannot happen without volunteers to run and organise them. The PTA committee is a small group of parents who always welcome new members to help co-ordinate the events diary. However, we also really value anybody who volunteers on a more ad hoc basis.

The saying: 

Many hands make light work

is fully embraced by the PTA.

 Notice of PTA meetings is given in newsletters (Diary Dates), the school website and on the PTA notice boards. These are friendly, welcoming and open to all and usually take place on the first Monday of the month at The Engine, starting at 8.00 pm.
