St Augustine’s School






The PTA would like to welcome all the new families that have joined St Augustine’s this year!

What is the PTA (also known as Friends of St Augustine’s)?

Parents Teachers Association – OK, but what does it actually mean / do?

We enjoy a great Community at St Augustine’s and the PTA is a way of bringing parents together to work for our children’s school. The PTA is a group of individuals who organise events and activities that help provide funds for the school to improve facilities, support refurbishment projects and to afford extra resources and facilities for our children, not ordinarily provided by the local authority. With these diminishing it is even more crucial! Be in it! You’ve got nothing to lose.

All time offered is appreciated and any level of expertise is welcomed.

Last year (2015/2016) we raised over £21,990 for St Augustine’s. A brilliant achievement!

PTA events are not just fundraisers; they are also social events where you can meet other parents and further enjoy this wonderful community we belong to here at St Augustine’s.

Who can be in the PTA?

Absolutely everyone! We all have something that can help the school, be it some of our time or expertise! That is all it takes!

We have roughly 200 children at school, so quite a number of parents / carers / grandparents at hand. Imagine if everyone was able to give some time – even ½ hr per person per term for instance!

Class reps – who are they and why?

These are PTA members that will be the link between your class and the PTA / school. Please feel free to contact them to find out more. As you will have already seen, they will keep you up to date with events.
