About Us

The PTA is a very important organisation within our School

As a parent/carer of a child at our school, you automatically become a member of the Parent Teacher Association (PTA).

The main aim of the PTA is to raise funds to support activities in school which are to the benefit of all pupils.

The funds provided by the PTA are an invaluable source of revenue which greatly benefit our school and our children.

Items purchased by the PTA include:

Computers and charging trolley, maths and science equipment, wet play resources, playground picnic benches and shed, Forest Schools resources, outside play equipment, pond, development of the outside learning environment, dressing up resources, resources for productions, subsidising guest speakers, leavers’ book tokens, stage blocks, £3000 worth of books for the library, sound and visual system, projector & screen for the school hall etc.

There is a PTA Committee which exists to run the various social and fund-raising events held throughout the year.  Committee members may serve for a maximum of three years and a minimum of one year.

Following on from our AGM on 23rd September 2021, the current PTA Committee are:

  • Alecia Ridout-Garfield & Dominique Atwell (Co-Chairs)
  • Melanie Williams  (Treasurer)
  • Alex Williams (Secretary)

​We are also very lucky to have other volunteers who help at individual events.  If you would like to get more involved, please speak to any Committee member, look out for the sign-up sheets for volunteers for individual events or email  We also have a Facebook page which is used to advertise PTA events (Friends of Balcombe School ).
