What is the PTA?

The Parent Teacher Association, or PTA, is a charitable organisation that supports and enhances the school, for the benefit of the children.  The PTA plans and organises a wide variety of fundraising activities and events to provide additional resources that the school might  otherwise not be able to afford.  In addition, the  PTA is also a community organisation and organises social events for the children and parents that bring our community together.

Who are the PTA ?

All parents, guardians and teachers of pupils at Grands Vaux School are members of the PTA.  The PTA is organised by a central Committee.  At our Annual General Meeting we either confirm our Committee members and elect new ones as needed.

Our aim is to have a parent from every class, from Nursery to Year 6, to act as a class representative on the Committee and to make sure all views are represented.

In addition to the parents on the Committee the Headteacher is the President, and a member of the school’s Senior Leadership Management Team takes on the role of Vice President.
