Welcome to the PTA section of our website.
Chiddingstone School's Parent Teacher Association is run for the benefit of our children and future generations of children at Chiddingstone and we cannot say enough about how invaluable this support is to keep our school running in the unique way it does, so a huge thank you to you all.
The Treasurers’ report for the 2020-21 year can be found below summarising our fundraising achievements and how we have been able to support the school.
Looking to the year ahead, we have a nice full calendar of PTA events. We will be having regular second hand uniform sales, at least two Bag2School collections, return of 50p Friday outside the school at pick up, several October half term fundraisers for the children to get involved with and our very own school apple juice to be produced and sold at the Christmas fair.
The Christmas season will be jam packed as always, kicking off with the fair on Saturday 4th December. We will be providing refreshments and doing a raffle at the KS1 Nativity and KS2 Carol Concert. The children will also be invited to join a Christmas themed disco.
In terms 3 and 4 we are hoping to have some smaller scale fundraising events organised by the Y2 & Y3 reps, fingers crossed for the return of the ball and a lovely summer term of sports days, maypole dancing, the school production and the village fete. Extra events will be added as they are suggested.
We have introduced a PTA newsletter which will be sent out every term summarising the events from the previous term, money raised, forthcoming events and an update on what we are fundraising for. You can find our latest edition below.
We are hoping to raise money this year to put towards new technology for the classrooms and to support the completion of some building work in the library area.
Please keep an eye on this page for updates of our progress throughout the year as well as links to fundraising initiatives that we sign up to. If you have a fundraising idea, please do get in touch!
