The PTA is a registered charity made up of a group of supportive Mums, Dad, Carers, Grandparents, who work together, alongside the teaching staff, to hold events and raise money to benefit the children of Tangmere Primary Academy. 

We are always looking for new ideas to raise money to support the school.  More recently we have arranged a number of events including:-

  • Cake sales, 

  • Raffles, 

  • Sausage Sizzles,

  • Community Quiz Night,

  • Family Photo- Shoots 

  • Secret Santa 

This has enabled us to provide a number of items for the children, such as;

  • Book bags for when the children start school in Nursery or Reception Class 

  • Commemorative hoodies the year 6 children 

  • Chocolate Eggs for the annual TPA Easter Egg Rolling Competition

  • Donations towards key texts 

  • Donations towards the library stock

  • Donations towards new Interactive Smartboards for each classroom.

We are also very lucky to have a swimming pool on site but the upkeep of the pool and surrounding area is expensive. We are happy to be able to contribute annually towards this. We also have a TPA PTA Swimming Pool Fundraiser page which can be found below.

There are a variety of ways you can get involved; we know everybody has busy lives so are mindful not to take up too much of your time.

Ways in which you could help:

  • Helping to sell cakes at the cake sales

  • Asking and collecting raffle prizes from local companies 

  • Writing and submitting funding bids for different school projects 

  • Taking part in a working party to improve the school grounds 

  • Manning a stall at the different events/ fairs. 

  • Selling raffle tickets 

  • Sharing the adverts for events on your social media accounts. 

  • Giving us different ideas to raise money 

Our PTA depends on a continual cycle of parent involvement, without your support, we have no PTA. We currently have about 10 members in our group, most of our members work full time and part time alongside volunteering and would really welcome support from any other parents, even if only on an event by event basis.

We have between 3-6 meetings a year.  We hold them in person and virtually to try to accommodate everyone's working patterns. We would love to see some new faces and hear lots of fresh ideas for our group.  Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

The PTA has its own page to collect additional funds for the school.  This can be found below
