  • Charity Status & The Constitution

    Posted on 17th October 2016

    This year, we will be applying for Charity status for our PTA. There are many benefits that this brings to the PTA and School, and it also provides greater transparency of the use of the funds raised. Part of achieving Charity status is to have a constitution that we operate within. We have decided to adopt the PTA UK constitution and will be running the PTA within the boundaries of this document. Please feel free to have a look at this document.

    Thank you for your support with this.

    The PTA Committee
