A PTA is a Parent Teacher Association, an organisation with a mission to make the school a better place for children to learn. Horspath’s PTA brings together parents, teachers and children to raise funds and strengthen the school community. Money raised is usually spent on things that the school budget does not cover.
Horspath’s PTA committee welcomes any parents who would like to be a class representative to help organise events or explore new fundraising opportunities.
The Horspath Committee officers are
- Chair: Kathryn Goodliffe
- Secretary: Natalie Oakley
- Treasurer: Michael Timbs
In the school year ending in July 2022, the PTA organised raffles, cake sales, ice cream sales, Mothering Sunday flowers and provided refreshments at the end of year performance, Pirates of the Curry Bean. From these events the PTA raised about £3000 to support transport for school trips, a contribution to the cost of Art Week and the purchase of items for learning outdoors.
In non-COVID years, the PTA typically raises £5000 from different events, for example:
- cake sales
- sponsored events
- regular contributions from Easyfundraising.org.uk
