Parent Teacher Association - PTA
The Parent Teacher Association is a wonderfully supportive group, which organises a range of social, practical and fund-raising events throughout the year. In recent years, the PTA has provided the school with additional music equipment, library books and technology equipment as well as developing our outside play areas.
All parents are automatic members of the PTA, and all are welcome to play an active part in running the events. These include children's disco's, beetle drives and a regular Christmas fair. For information on help that is currently needed, please click here.
PTA representatives are elected annually at the AGM each September. The current PTA contacts are:
Chair...............................Mrs Karen Upton
Vice Chair ......................Mrs Diana Bristow
Secretary........................Mrs Nicola Earle
Treasurer........................Mr Hugh Smith
All are contactable through the school or by email on LeaPTA@leagarsdon.wilts.sch.uk.

Thank you to everyone who returned the nomination forms and gave apologies or attended the AGM held on 26th September. We are pleased that the Chair, Treasurer and Secretary were re-elected to stand for a further year and that new volunteers have come forward to help with events and fundraising. There are some exciting fundraisers being planned and we look forward to sharing the details over the next few months. If you have any ideas for a great fundraising event, do please get in touch.
