Coopers Lane PTA is an important part of the community of the school.
What we do:
- Raise funds to pay for extra resources for the school and pupils. Our school fairs, quiz nights and cake, and secondhand uniform sales have been very successful. Recent projects funded by the PTA have been the peace garden, a shade for the playground, Year 6 yearbooks, and subsidising school trips
- Develop local community links through our activities
- Encourage and enable parents/carers to become more involved in school life
How you can get involved:
We are always looking for new members. The more parents and staff we have, the better we will be able to realise our goals and dreams for Coopers Lane. We hold regular meetings, alternating between drop-off (9:00) and evening to try to accommodate as many as possible.
If you can’t manage to come to a meeting but would like to get involved in any way, just email us on firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a message at the office. Whether it’s a one-off donation, volunteering, even for a few hours, or getting your employer to sponsor an event, we are always very grateful for any help.
Elaine Harris (Learning Mentor) is the school contact for the PTA so please get in touch via the school office if you would like to get involved. If you are good at fundraising, creative, sporty, or even just good at talking to people, we can use your skills!
