Parent Teacher Association
What is the Parent Teacher Association?
The purpose of the Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is to advance the education of pupils in the primary school through:
- Developing effective relationships between the parents, staff and others associated with the school.
- Engaging in activities and fundraising to provide facilities, equipment and activities to support the school and advance the education of pupils.
Members of the association are the parents or carers of any pupil currently attending the primary school plus teaching and non-teaching staff currently employed by the school.
The committee is a team of volunteers who are elected at the PTA’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) to manage the association on behalf of the members.
Pre-Loved School Uniform Shop
The PTA runs a Pre-Loved School Uniform Shop to keep perfectly usable school uniform out of landfill while at the same time raising valuable funds to support the school and advance the education of its pupils.
There is a huge amount of gently worn uniform in stock, all in fantastic condition, washed and ready for new children to wear. All uniform is available at affordable prices. The shop takes cash and card payments.
The shop is based in ‘The Village’ which is the wooden hut opposite the Early Years gate. The PTA opens up the shop on regular occasions and can also open on request – please email the PTA.
Parents/carers can also donate school uniform to the shop. Please leave it with staff at reception.
Burlington Danes Family Cycle Library
The Burlington Danes Family Cycle Library was a PTA project which aimed to help more parents and children to cycle to school and for leisure. It was made possible through funding from the Walking and Cycling Grants London programme. The project loaned a range of adult, child bikes and seats to families from the school and the wider community for free over half term periods between April and October 2021. This was supported by free cycle training available through Hammersmith & Fulham Council. The project achieved the following:
- 71 parents and children helped to cycle through the loan of bikes and/or cycle training
- Cycling opened up to new people and to groups who are less likely to cycle. Before engaging in the project, 57% of participants had not cycled in the past 12 months.
- Overwhelming positive feedback with 99% of those taking part enjoying the experience
- 91% of those taking part now feel more confident to cycle. This includes 16 parents and children who can now ride a bike thanks to the project
- 93% said they will cycle more from now on
The project has now ended and the fleet of bikes redistributed to other Walking and Cycling Grants London projects.
