PTA - Parents’ Association

Haydon Parents Association is a small charity run by a committed group of parents whose purpose is to try to enhance our children’s education at Haydon School.

The PTA brings together parents, teachers and children to raise funds and strengthen the school community. The PTA is a registered charity and all our funds go back into Haydon school to the benefit all students.

Funds raised for 2022/2023:

£1612 so far!

Thanks to all the support of Haydon families, this academic year! 

 It’s been a tough few years following COVID19 and trying to build back up a committee over the last few years. We are slowly starting to get back to raising funds and we appreciate your support and welcome any new members to support this.

How can you help?

  1.  Join our team! The committee is a small team that organizes  events and fundraising initiatives.   We meet every 2 months to coordinate dates, brainstorm ideas and assign responsibilities for each event.
  2. Volunteer at eventsWe understand not everyone has the time to sit in on meetings and plan events.  Before each event we usually do a shout out for volunteers to help us with specific tasks at events mostly selling refreshments or manning a table.
  3. Support our initiativesBuy a ticket or novelty item,  come to the school productions and shows and support our stalls.  We rely on donations for prizes and welcome any contribution no matter how small.
  4. Ask your company to fund match usCertain companies partner with PTAs to fund certain events or to sponsor prizes.  Big companies will ‘match’ some of the takings at an event and this will often mean an extra £500 or £1,000 to the school. 
  5.  Join our Facebook group ‘HAYDON PARENTS ASSOCIATIONKeep in the loop, detailing planned events and a place to share ideas and suggestions.
  6. School Uniform donations. Donate any Haydon branded uniform or PE kit you no longer need or want that is in good re-sellable condition. Haydon PTA will enable those in need to be able to purchase items at a lower cost.  Drop your donations at the school office. 

The Difference Haydon Donations make

Last year we contributed £20,000 to the cooling system for St Mary's Gym that was installed during the summer holidays in 2022. 

This year we have purchased soft seating, a wobble board and sensory seating in H111, to be used during breakfast, break and lunch club as well as during social groups and during periods of emotional distress. In the past we have also contributed to the drinking fountains and picnic benches to enable the students to make the most of the all too rare sunny days.  The PTA have funded the running of a monthly food club, provided costumes and lighting for the drama club and a sound system for the hall.

Things that our school needed your help to purchase

Our big challenge this year is to raise as much as we can to purchase a new
School minibus – a big target for 2023!

The school place bids for items they want to purchase and the committee always considers how many children will gain and how long the items will last ensuring the funds will enhance as many Haydon pupils as possible.
