PTA

How can you get involved?

All parents and members of the school community are encouraged to get involved, even if they only have a small amount of time available.  Involvement in the PTA can range from a simple one-off commitment such as helping on a stall for an hour at the Summer Fair, to joining the committee or one of our event organising teams. We also need volunteers to issue tickets, create posters, purchase refreshments, help out at coffee mornings and much more!  Everyone has something to give and we always welcome new ideas and suggestions.

If you would like to find out more, come along to our New Parents’ Coffee Morning or PTA Welcome Meeting, where you can chat to members of our PTA in person.

We would like to welcome you to Middlewich Primary School and to the Parent Teacher Association.

Why do we have a PTA?

We are fortunate at our school to have a PTA that is, and has been, an integral part of the school community for many years.

Our PTA, however, is about much more than simply fundraising! It exists to provide closer links between home and school and it is an excellent way to bring staff, parents and friends together socially in support of the school, working towards a common goal. It is fun too - just ask any of the Committee members or our many valued helpers.

Who are the PTA?

All families are automatically members of the PTA when their child joins our school.  Meetings are held monthly and you are always welcome to come along to hear more about what we do. Meetings are not just for committee members, many parents contribute to the running of our PTA and the many events we hold throughout the year.
