Blue Coat Junior School PTA
Who are we and what do we do?
We would like to warmly invite you all to join in and support Blue Coat School through the PTA. Our absolute aim is to enrich every child’s experience of school during their time here at Blue Coat Junior School and to give them as many opportunities to make memories with their friends as possible. The following positions were taken up at the start of the current academic year 2018-19
Chair: Michelle Somerville
Vice-Chair: Lucy Green
Treasurer: Kerry Baiden
Secretary: Abi Hawkins
Any form of contribution will be so very welcome: you could join the Committee and help to plan our fundraising events; volunteer at PTA activities; bake cakes, make tea or whatever you feel you would like to do. The more the merrier, so if you have any contacts, ideas or skills we could benefit from, tell us about them! There’s no pressure and it’s a great way to get to know other parents from all year groups.
Our Facebook page, Blue Coat Juniors PTA, is a great way to keep up to date with events and share ideas, or please let the office know if you would like to be added to our e-mailing list. We can be contacted on firstname.lastname@example.org

So where does the money we raise go? As well as providing food and resources for our events, every penny goes directly to buy extras for the school to benefit every child. This year, Mrs Grieve has asked us to purchase outdoor clothing and outdoor play equipment to support the OPAL initiative and ensure that all the children can play outdoors all year round. For more information about this, have a look at www.outdoorplayandlearning.org.uk
As you know, one of the most popular stalls at fairs is the tombola and we are very grateful for your generosity in donating prizes. The school has kindly offered us additional storage facilities, meaning that we can collect donations all year round, rather than the day before events. If you’re having a clear-out and have any non-perishable items you would like to donate please send them our way! Donations can be handed into the office with a label stating they are for the PTA at any time.
