Welcome to The Highdown School PTA
Highdown PTA supports the academy by raising supplementary funds through events for parents/carers, staff and students.
As we are sure you are aware, school budgets are being squeezed so schools are increasingly reliant on additional funds and this is where the PTA help; it is no longer solely a social “nice to have” but is becoming more of an essential.
We appreciate how busy everyone is with work, family and personal commitments and are ever thankful to everyone who attends PTA events. The more people who support the PTA in organising these, the less everyone has to do.
How can you help?
Help organise events (email us if you are interested)
Volunteer at events (email us or sign up to the relevant event on PTA Events as a volunteer – link on this page)
Find out if your company offers fund matching for PTA events. We are signed up to Benevity which allows companies to support the chosen charities of their employees
Every parent/carer is welcome to attend PTA meetings and if you are interested in doing so please send an email to the address on this page. There is no obligation to take a role on the PTA Committee or organise events, but your ideas on fundraising events are always welcome.
We are a small, friendly and welcoming group!

Next PTA Meeting
Our next meeting is Tuesday 5 October 2021 at 6:30pm.
The year 7/8 disco will be our first in-person event in almost two years!
A great chance for students in Year 7 and 8 to have fun with their friends, and make new ones.
Year 7s might have missed their Year 6 leavers do and Year 8s didn't have a disco in Year 7, so they can make up for this now.
DJ, disco lights, and a tuck shop (students must bring cash if they'd like to purchase anything).
Online ticket sales close midnight Sunday 17th October. Tickets can be bought on the door for £5.

What are the rules about parking in School?
For health and safety reasons, the gates are closed to parents’ cars from 8.20-8.45am and 2.50-3.20pm. This is due to the number of students entering and leaving the site at the start and end of the day.
If you are dropping off / collecting your child by car, please do not drive onto the school site or block the school entrance.
Parking is available during other times but is very restricted. If you have an appointment at the school there are 4 designated parking bays opposite the minibus spaces.
