Community

What is a PTA?

A Parent and Teachers Association that represents the whole school community and gives an opportunity to parents to be more involved in school life. In our understanding a Steiner School is formed of trustees, College, Management, Teachers and Staff, Parents and friends working in close partnership to provide a safe and nurturing educational environment for our children. We believe that a PTA will strengthen our community by bringing everyone together.

What does the PTA do?

The PTA organises and facilitates social and fundraising events for parents and children. This creates opportunities for everyone to meet and get to know each other better. The funds raised provide extra resources for pupils, and go towards maintaining and improving school facilities. The PTA also creates an opportunity for parents to share their ideas on how to obtain and invest resources in order to constantly improve the school environment for our children.

How does the PTA work?

We have an active PTA committee who meet half termly in the evening. Parents and staff enjoy tea and biscuits and discuss fundraising, upcoming events and ideas on how to support our school.  Everyone is welcome to come along with fresh ideas or to support the old trusted fundraising events.  This helps parents to feel part of our school community, especially those who don’t come to school with their child regularly.

Meeting dates are displayed on posters around the school, as well as on the school’s newsletter and website. If you would like to come along to our next meeting you can simply turn up on the day and we always welcome participation from as many parents as possible. Your time and commitment is, of course, voluntary.

The PTA has an official committee of active members. There are 12 official seats for which members need to nominate themselves and be voted in. The PTA will hold an AGM wherein all re-elections and/or new nominations for committee members take place. This is also when the PTA will present its audited accounts, as well as a report on all events from that year.

If you would like to know more, have any questions or suggestions, the PTA can be contacted at thebrightonsteinerschoolpta@outlook.com
