PTA

Greens Norton School PTA aims to:
 
Develop relationships between the staff, parents and others, involved within the school 
Arrange events and activities that raise funds for equipment and projects in school to enhance the enjoyment of education to the pupils 
Organise fun social events for the pupils, their families and the wider community to enjoy and participate 
Support the school in any way we can. 
 
To help us obtain the above, we rely on the support of parents who can attend PTA meetings and/or spare a couple of hours helping out at events. 
 
We are a friendly relaxed PTA group who welcomes anyone that has children / grand children at the school.  We are always keen to welcome new volunteers and you don’t need to commit to every meeting or event, everyone does what they can.
 
If you would like to get involved please chat to any PTA member, or email: greensnortonpta@gmail.com

Or please view our Facebook page to see the latest news, events and happenings from the PTA.  It is currently a closed group, so just simply request to join and if you are a parent, carer or grandparent of a child of the school we will happily accept your request.

Clothes bin: The bin can take clothes, underwear, linen, paired shoes and handbags.  It’s located just outside the main reception area and is emptied every fortnight, with monies raised going directly to the school. 
School lottery; Players can support us for as little as £1 per week.  Each week someone within the school community will have the chance of winning a guaranteed weekly prize.  The more people that participate, the bigger the guaranteed prize becomes and the more money raised for the school.  On top of this, you will also be entered into a separate national draw with a chance to win an amazing £25,000, every week.
