PTA Annual General Meeting

30th September 2016

What is a Parent Teacher Association (PTA)?

Most schools have a Parent Teacher Association (PTA), which is an organisation of parents and staff. Its role is to encourage closer links between home and school. PTAs are best known for their fundraising work, but they have a useful social function too. Fundraising events provide an opportunity for parents, staff and pupils to get together.

How is our PTA organised?

At our school all parents/carers and teachers are automatically members of the PTA.

Most PTAs hold their annual general meeting in September, at the start of the school year. At this meeting a committee is elected to run the PTA – usually consisting of a chair, a vice-chair, a treasurer, a secretary and ordinary committee members. 

PTA committees usually meet once a term and set up smaller working groups to organise individual events.
