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.
Last year was another busy and successful year for the PTA. Our main event was the Masquerade Ball, which was held at Hever castle and attended by over 120 parents! It is this type of involvement that really does give the school a lovely friendly community feel and makes school part of our parent's social lives as well as being a wonderful place for your children to learn.
We were incredibly lucky to receive such generous support from parents raising over £20,000 allowing us to be able to continue leasing a second minibus as well as purchasing new smartboards for the classrooms. We also organised a special treat for the children when three GB Hockey players visited the school and ran workshops for the children. As well as this the PTA continued to support lots of additional school initiatives that enrich our children's experiences, including forest school, Christmas shows, Pancake races, Easter prizes, 50p Fridays, not forgetting all the refreshments at various school events!
We are hoping to raise money this year to put towards new technology for the classrooms including laptops, tablets and a new charging dock. A resurfacing of the playground is also high on the list!
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 would like to get involved by being a class rep, committee member or have a fundraising idea please do get in touch!

So far this term, we have had the Farmers Market (thank you to the Y5 Reps for organising/running this) and the School Disco (thank you to YR and Y4 reps for all your efforts - the children loved it!).
The Farmers Market raised £133 and the School Disco raised £737 - a great start to the academic year!
30th September 2019:
We are aiming to work alongside the schools “eco policy” this year with a big emphasis on reducing plastic waste and so are hoping to produce Jute bags for sale at the Christmas Fair as well as providing reusable cups at all our usual events throughout the year.
