Welcome to the PTA section.
What is the PTA?
As a parent at Chalkwell, you are automatically a member of the PTA (Parent Teacher association). We are a registered charity and therefore we are legally required to have 4 elected committee members. This academic year, they are as follows:
Chairperson – Simone Isaacs
Vice Chair- Alison Alsegard
Secretary- Nicola Moule
Treasurer- David Baldwin
The elected committee and a handful of general members make up a small committee team. Members take responsibility for the organisation and smooth running of all the events.
Our regular events include:
Christmas Fayre, Santa run, Santa’s grotto, Summer fete, curry nights, quiz nights and Go bonkers. This year we have additionally run a very successful movie night in the juniors. We also sell discounted Adventure Island and bounce village tickets.
Why do we have a PTA?
The PTA has been an integral part of the school for many years and over that time we have raised thousands of pounds to improve the school facilities for all the children. New ideas conceived by the PTA have helped to boost school funds immensely. Our Summer Fete this year raised a huge £4,000 for the school. Together, teachers, parents and the children created a fantastic day for the whole community to enjoy.
The school notifies the PTA of projects they require funding for at the AGM in September and the committee then arrange the fundraising timetable for the year ahead.
How can you get involved?
We appreciate that time is precious, but being involved in the PTA is NOT a full time job. It doesn’t matter if you can’t attend every meeting, however new faces bring new ideas! The offering of help before and during events is so valuable, but should you wish to commit a little more time you could always become a General member and take on a regular responsibility. Our meetings are informal and for those of you with Pre-school children, you are more than welcome to bring them along.
