Barlows PTA (Parent Teacher Association)

Joining the PTA is an excellent way to bring together parents, teachers and your local community to raise money and to support the school. It provides an opportunity for everyone to work together towards a common goal.

All parents, teachers and school staff can get involved even if they only have a small amount of time available.


What Does a PTA Do?

PTA activity can vary from school to school. Here at Barlows, the PTA have helped raise funds for a range of school items, from Reception outdoor equipment to Y6 leaver’s gifts, as well as raising money through cake sales and stalls at the Fun Day. These funds benefit all children in the school and are used for the following purposes:

  • to help the school provide resources and extras for the pupils
  • to run social events for parents and children
  • to provide support for school trips and outings and other special events
  • to run after school clubs

If you feel that you have some time (no matter how little) and would like to join the PTA, please contact the school office, who will be happy to assist. Extended family and friends of the school are also very welcome to join our PTA.
