PTA

Fairlawn PTA was established as a charity for the purpose of creating a central fundraising entity that supports the education and wellbeing of the pupils and improving the school life for everyone that attends Fairlawn Primary School. 

All teachers, parents, and guardians of children at the school are automatically members of the PTA.

To become more involved, or to share fundraising ideas or work together on specific projects please email pta@fairlawnschool.net 

We would love to work with you.

Fundraising in 2020/21

Given the restrictions in place during the year, many of the traditional annual fund-raising events were unable to be held. However, despite this a remarkable £15.3k was raised, notably from the following campaigns: winter term JustGiving class donations, Christmas tree sale, summer term Get set to Tokyo campaign, end of term souvenir tote bag sales and many other much valued donations. The PTA would like to take this opportunity to thank all who donated so generously.

Through this funding, the PTA were able to continue to provide financial support of the school’s activities and resources. During the period approx. £11.3k was spent, of which the majority of this was for the fantastic treehouse and resources for the Golden Garden. Additional funding was provided to support a variety of school requests for materials such as books, crafts etc. During lock-down, the PTA were pleased to fund some virtual activities such as meet the author sessions, storytelling, and trips to the zoo. Finally, at the end of a difficult year the PTA provided Y6 with leaving souvenirs which were much appreciated, and we hope will become an annual tradition.

Current year

The PTA and the school leadership team met at the start of the school year and are excited to aim to host as many of the traditional fun and interactive fund-raising events as possible in the coming year following covid-safety assessments. We have already hosted early years coffee mornings to give parents the chance to meet after drop-off and it was lovely to see so many support the return of the cake sales. We are also planning and autumn disco, Christmas panto and other festive activities.

We are pleased to have been able to support funding requests for £150 class budget resources which was amazingly matched by your generous donations.  Other items include forest school storage, KS1 playground equipment and further requests are being considered with the aim to promote and support diversity and to welcome back school trips. Additionally, we are looking forward to supporting world book day, science week and International Mother Language Day plus many other resources and events.
