Welcome to the Evenlode PTA Page

Welcome to the new school year!

Can you believe September is here again? No – neither can we!
The PTA at Evenlode Primary School is made up of a group of volunteers, who give their time and effort to help raise funds to enhance your child’s experience at school. We would like to extend the invitation to each and every parent, grandparent, guardian or carer to take part in this fund raising in which ever way you can.
We completely understand (and empathise fully) with the pulls of family and work life, and we offer a variety of ways in which you can participate in the fund raising activities.
We have a very active Facebook page (see link below) and  we keep this updated with all the meetings and events going on. ‘Like’ us and join the Evenlode PTA community.

What happened last year

Last year saw a whole host of new and familiar events taking place at school.

We tested your knowledge in the quiz, had Breakfast with Santa and the whole school community rallied round when a power cut meant that the Christmas Fayre had to be postponed for a week. In the new year, you tasted gin, baked some truly spectacular cakes and hunted for Easter eggs.

The summer term brought laughter in the form of the Circus at the Summer Fayre and sweat at the Fun Run. All these events and the other fundraising activities such as the Silver Trail, Sunflower Growing Competition, Bag2School and the money raised from uniform sales have meant that the PTA was able to raise a huge sum of money. Although the final figures are not available just yet, we estimate that we have raised in excess of £13,000 – a massive total, which will enable the school to purchase much needed resources both for within the school and in the playground.

Fundraising total

Last year we raised over £13000

The events since Christmas raised the following:

  • Gin Tasting Evening £760
  • Easter Fun Day & Silver Trail £2000
  • Summer Fayre & Circus £4000
  • Sports Day (so far) £230
  • Bag2School £200
  • Sunflower Competition £100

Thank you for all your help. Lets see what we can do this year!

2016/17 PTA Survey

Thank you to everyone who took part in the survey that we ran last year. You have given us some excellent feedback on what you would like to see more of in the 2017/18 academic year.

Sunflower Growing Competition

Earlier in the year, we gave you the opportunity to test your horticultural skills by seeing who could grow the tallest sunflower using our seeds. We have received lots of entries – but the winners are Elin and Liwsi Payne. Their sunflower reached a magnificent 2.72m tall (although their mum thinks it might have grown a bit more since they measured it!). A gardening set prize will be presented to the girls for the splendid efforts.

Have a look at the gallery below to see the entries received.

Sunflowers Galore!

Upcoming Events

Keep watching Facebook and the website for a calendar of events for the autumn term. We will be releasing this soon.

In the meantime, please add this date for your diary:

The welcome meeting will be on Friday 22nd September at 7.30pm at school. All are very welcome – and there will be a glass of wine available.
