Dear Children, Parents/Carers and Teachers
Allocation of PTA Funds
Rothwell Primary School PTA raises money to enable the school to pay for events, activities or equipment outside the normal school budget. We aim to use this money to enrich school life for all children.
We are proud of the money we have raised to date and what it has been used for. In the last year we have raised money through fun activities including a cinema evening, fashion show, Halloween disco, summer bbq, Christmas wrapping room and by selling refreshments at school events. This money has been spent on things such as subsidising school trips; drinks and snacks for the Pantomime; story teller for Roald Dahl day and much, much more.
We want to ensure that PTA funds are allocated in the fairest way and that the process is as simple as possible. To this end we have created a funding request form, which is attached to this letter and will also be made available via the PTA section of the school website. If you have an idea for an event, activity or equipment which could be paid for by PTA funds to benefit pupils then the process is as follows:
• Complete a funding request form
• Submit it to the PTA (directly or via the school office)
• PTA will discuss and make a decision at their next meeting (based on the amount of money requested and the number of requests we have received) Please do speak to a member of the PTA if you have any questions about the allocation of PTA funds.
Thank you again for your continued support. Rothwell Primary PTA
