Sandfield PTA (Parent Teacher Association)
Sandfield PTA is our parent/carer organisation that creates a programme of fund raising and social events for the school community. The money raised by the events is used to make the school environment even better. We always need volunteers and it's not as time-consuming as you might think. Just a couple of hours a month from you can make all the difference in the funds we raise.
We are extremely grateful to have such a pro-active and caring parent community with £9783 being raised last year alone. We put this money towards iPads in KS1 to go with the ones already purchased for KS2 with PTA funds, as well as new sporting activities and events for the children in order to raise physical and mental wellbeing for all. We have also purchased further iPads for KS2 in Spring 2020 as well as enabled all the children in KS1 to take part in a Sportshall Competition. Help is always needed and remember, every parent is a member of the PTA!
Please contact Emma or Waiyee or email the PTA email address: email@example.com if you would like any further information on how to help at events or become a member of the Committee.

Events planned for 2019/2020
Quiz Night - Friday 15th November 2019
It’s that time again, the next PTA parent social is the infamous ‘Quiz Night’ taking place on Friday 15th November 2019 at 8.00pm in the school hall.
Book your baby sitters, come along for a fun evening and see if the parents can win back the trophy from the crack team of teachers who took the lead last year with their paper-tower-building talents.
Make a team or join one on the night. We'd particularly love to welcome any new parents to the school. It's a fun, silly night and a great way to meet other parents.
Tickets £8 each (two tickets for £15). Amazing raffle prizes!! Bring nibbles and a bottle!
Christmas Jumpers needed!
To help reduce the impact of clothing waste on the environment, this year please donate any outgrown Christmas jumpers to the school after half term for our new Christmas jumper stall. More details to follow...
Christmas Fair - Thursday 5th December 2019 -5.00-7.00pm
If anyone is available to help with the Fair this year, please let a member of the PTA Committee know. We always need help to set up, man stalls and clear up after! Anyone with Christmas fair expertise, amazing ideas or just eager to run their favourite stall again please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer.
Start collecting your jam jars to turn into Jolly Jars for the fair. These need to be festively decorated and filled with sweets, smalls toys, stationery etc. Also please save up preloved, good quality toys and books for the fair too. Further details of when to bring items in to school will follow.
