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 to manage the association on behalf of the members.

Burlington Danes Family Cycle Library

The Burlington Danes Family Cycle Library is a PTA project which aims to help more parents and children to cycle to school and for leisure. The project lends a range of adult bikes, child bikes and seats to families for free for half term periods between April and October. This is supported by free one-to-one cycle training for adults provided by Bikeworks. The project also involves pairing new cycling families with existing cycling families to support cycling to school together, and a series of family cycle rides in the local area open to all. The project is open to families from Ark Burlington Danes Primary Academy and the wider community.

The PTA has received a £9,972 grant from Walking and Cycling Grants London to deliver the Burlington Danes Family Cycle Library project. Walking and Cycling Grants London is a programme funded by Transport for London in partnership with The London Marathon Charitable Trust. It offers funding of up to £10,000 over three years to community groups for projects that encourage people of all ages and backgrounds to walk and cycle safely.

 

The project has a dedicated webpage on the PTA website: https://bdpa-pta.org/cycle-library
