Welcome to the PTA at Mount Pleasant Lane School. As a parent or carer of a child at MPL school you are automatically a member of the PTA. The PTA is here to help raise vital funds for the school to help pay for trips, software, equipment etc. to help enrich the time your child spends at our school. We do this by arranging events such as cake sales, discos, festivals, surprises rooms etc. These events are to raise money, but they also bring our community together, to have fun and meet other parents and children.
As a PTA we always need your help and are very aware of how busy we all are with work, family and general day to day life however, if you can help by giving an hour of your time on a stall at an event or by attending the PTA meetings to offer new ideas, or you can offer to become a committee member no matter how much time you do (or don’t) have we really appreciate any help that you can offer!
Our Current Committee:
Co-Chairs: Katie Holmes and Amanda Mills
Co-Secretaries: Rachel Blomfield and Suzanne Dolan
Treasurer: Julie Childs
Event ideas for 2022:
We are planning several events for next year, but we are having to see what will be possible in the current times. We would love to get a summer festival event back in the diary and re start surprises rooms as they are always so popular. We would love to do the discos again and organise family events such as book at bedtime and family bingo.
We will organise a meeting in the new year once we know what education and government advice is and we can see what we can get in the diary.
If you have any additional ideas, please do let us know, and please attend the PTA meetings if you can – we need you to help make these types of events a success, both by helping with the planning but also by attending the events.
We have already helped to fund the new laptops in school but we are looking at other areas we can help improve too, so again if you have any ideas please do let us know
You can contact the PTA anytime via email: firstname.lastname@example.org, by using the contact form at the bottom of this page or by posting a note in the PTA box in the school reception area. If you have anything urgent you need to discuss, please speak to the office who can put you in touch with either Katie or Amanda.
Thank you for your continued support and we would love to hear from you regarding any new ideas or helping us to achieve our ambitious plans for the playground area.
