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 2022-23 year can be found below summarising our fundraising achievements and how we have been able to support the school.
Our calendar of events kicked off with a pre-loved toy & book sale and a group of pupils taking on the Hever Commando Obstacle Course challenge, collecting sponsorship from family & friends.
We will of course be providing a variety of refreshments once again at all school events, holding second hand uniform sales throughout the year and our ever popular 50p Friday sales at the end of each term. A Bag2School collection has been booked in for after the October half term and another in April.
Children will have the opportunity to design their own Christmas cards and merchandise, with a % of sales coming back to the PTA in commission.
The disco and movie night is booked in for November and the Christmas Fair in December. We will be treating the children to ice creams at their various Christmas pantomimes and shows they are booked in to see and we will be providing refreshments and doing a raffle at the KS1 Nativity performances and KS2 Carol Service.
Year 3 reps are in the planning stages of a bingo night for us in Term 3 and the Year 6 ball committee have already started getting the wheels in motion for the school ball in March.
It’s safe to say it will be a full calendar of events rounded off by our busy summer term in school including sports day, maypole dancing and our school open evening and summer production. We look forward to being involved again in the rugby tournament hosted by the local Badgers team who made a generous donation to our PTA from the profits made this year.
We will continue to produce our 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 continuing to raise money this year to put towards IT equipment, a new PE equipment storage shed and repairs needed to the play areas, along with donations throughout the year to enhance the children’s school experiences.
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!
