Week B

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? 

  • Attend events
  • 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!
