Parent Teacher Association
All parents, guardians and teachers are automatically members of the PTA. The PTA's two-fold purpose is to support the education of all students by the fundraising activities that take place throughout the academic year and to help to develop a strong sense of community which benefits RPA parents and the wider local community.
The PTA has 3 main fundraising events: The Fireworks Spectacular in the autumn term and Sheenstock BBQ and Music Festival in the summer term are community events for all those in school plus the wider community. The spring term Quiz & Chilli night is for RPA teachers and parents only. For the third year in April 2019 we will be supporting an RPA marathon runner as they fundraise for us over 26.2 hard London miles!
You can see a list of those items that we hhave purchased for our school with our fundraising at the bottom of this page.
We have termly, informal, meetings to discuss initiatives. You are warmly invited to attend; new thoughts and ideas are always very welcome.

The PTA Meetings
The PTA events don't happen on their own. There are 3 main committee meetings each year to coordinate the activity. All RPA parents are invited to attend. Involvement ranges from taking organisational responsibility at committee level to helping out at one of the events. The PTA will always find something that fits the time that a parent has, so get in touch or come to one of the meetings.
The next committee meeting will be on Wednesday 23 January 2019 at 6.45pm.
If you cannot make our meetings but have anything you would like to contribute, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
