Yelvertoft Primary School

We are now open to all pupils

 PTA- Yelvertoft School Association

 

We are passionate about our school and helping our children be the best they can be. Over the years we have raised money to help the school in numerous ways, from buying resources for each class such as ipads and equipment for the playground to fundraising through events and getting grants from the Wind farm Fund, Yelvertoft Parish Council, Lilbourne Parish Council & Yelvertoft Educational Charity to enable our school to have new books and our whole school to be repainted and freshened up.


Our PTA is a charity, registered with the Charity Commission, and bound by the terms of a constitution. Our constitution sets out how we operate as a PTA and how we conduct ourselves. The management of the PTA is vested in a committee currently comprising of 4 elected officers, PTA Committee Members and teaching staff, our 2020/2021 elected officers are as follows:


Chair: Katie Ross
Vice Chair: Rebecca Tew
Secretary: Melissa Treharne
Treasurer: Danny Carter


PTA Committee Members: Rupi Kaur, Susie Lawton, Steph Tye, Tracy Starkey.


Our PTA have been very successful with our fundraising over the past few years, especially since September 2020 we have managed to raise £7915.39 to date, which has enabled us to buy new ipads for each class, 4x new rainbow benches for our playground and recently our Readathon which enabled us to spend £978 on books for each class. We will be continuing with our fundraising and applying for more grants throughout 2021 to reach our goals to better our children’s education and enhance their learning further. Some of the exciting events we hope to look at over the next year are:


• School/ Bubble Cinema Nights
• School Disco’s
• Village Easter Egg Hunt
• Sports Day BBQ, Refreshments & Games
• Quiz & Fizz evening (Adult Only)
• Halloween Disco
• Christmas Fayre with a special visit from Santa


Our PTA are committed to working hard to raise funds for our school, but have also managed to help with fundraising events which over the last year has generated the following:


Our 5p challenge for each class bought in a total of £348.70 which our teachers can spend on equipment & resources for their class.


Our School Lottery has bought in £339.84 to date, also alongside this we have our Amazon Smile and Easy Fundraising app which is currently on £571.13 to date which all generate money towards our school and has been a massive help during lockdowns where we haven’t had the chance to fundraise.


We had our School Tea towel which made an impressive £197.00


Our biggest event was our Christmas Raffle which unfortunately due to the climate we couldn’t have a Christmas Fayre but we managed to raise an amazing £1575.00.


Our Village Easter Egg Hunts, Bubble Cinema Nights & Readathon have bought in much needed funds along the way and bought our children back together where they belong.


Also additional Grants of £3845 has bought our total amount to £7915.39 to date, something the PTA is very proud of.
