Houldsworth Valley Primary Academy


The PTA raises money to benefit pupils by funding equipment and activities that enrich their school lives.

An equally important function is to involve the parent community in the life of the school and organise opportunities for parents to meet and get to know one another.

With these aims in mind, the PTA committee organise a number of fun, social events for families during the year. These are really enjoyed by both parents and children, whilst raising valuable funds for the school.

In the past, money raised by the PTA has been used to help buy new books for the Library and make improvements to the outside space, including an lunchtime equipment and chicks for Reception.

Annual events run by the PTA include a Christmas Disco with lots of stalls and a visit from Father Christmas and a very successful Easter raffle.

All parents automatically become members of the PTA when their children join the school. Details of PTA events and activities are included in regular newsletters. Help is always needed organising and running events and all are very welcome at committee meetings.

Getting involved by joining the PTA committee or volunteering to help with an event is a great way to get to know other parents and help the school at the same time.
