Thank you for supporting us in our recent Christmas raffle, and congratulations to all the winners.
You helped raise a fantastic £390 all of which will be spent on things needed by the children in school.
We know 2020 was a different year to most and we wanted to make sure every child received a gift for Christmas. Every child received a selection box from the PTA, we couldn't have done it without your continued support. More toasty Fridays coming soon as well as exciting Covid friendly fundraising.
Our 1st PTA meeting last term was a little different than usual
due to the current Covid19 restrictions it was an online Teams meeting.
We will post here with details of our next meeting.
Everyone welcome. Please phone the office for log in details if you would like to join our team or see what the PTA is all about.
Here at St Charles we have an active and enthusiastic Parent Teacher Association ( PTA).
Our PTA aims to support the school to provide a wider and richer experience for all our pupils which are usually 'extra's' that the school budget would not normally cover. Enabling us to make the children's experiences more fulfilling and exciting.
We raise money throughout the year by organising social events and school based activities for the enjoyment of the pupils and their families as well as the wider community.
Members of the PTA are all volunteers and are made up of parents, carers, teachers and non-teaching staff, and welcomes everyone who would like to get involved.
There are many ways to help and support the PTA -from one off smaller events, to larger ongoing and future projects that can fit around your availability and suit your interest. Events and fundraising are truly a team effort so many responsibilities are shared across all the PTA team.
To date we have raised over £1,300 with easyfundraising which donates money to school when you shop online (at no cost to yourself). This is an app you can add to your mobile, laptop or tablet.

Some of our most popular fundraisers throughout the year include chocolate bingo, film nights, break the rules day and Mothers day/Fathers day wraps. This has enabled us to purchase digital classroom cameras, help fund the renovation of the school library, whole school pantomime visit and subsidise school trips as well as many other projects.
We are always looking for more volunteers.
