Welcome to our PTA
Our PTA is a group of parents and teachers who plan and run exciting events to raise money for the benefit of the children in our school. The PTA have funded some brilliant projects including new playground markings, school trips, swimming lessons, forest school equipment and loads more. The PTA doesn't just raise money, it also organises fun, social events for the school community from quiz nights to pop up takeaways to camping festivals.
Don't forget there are lots of ways you can help support the PTA
Amazon donate a proportion of your purchase to your chosen charity. It can be added to your app so so once you have set it up it will automatically donate if your purchase is eligible. Find us as 'Axbridge Church of England First School Parent Teachers Association'.
We are part of the Co-op membership scheme. If you have a Co-op card you can nominate Axbridge PTA as your chosen charity to benefit from donations every time you shop. Its really easy and free to get a card so if you're not a member already, please ask in store and select Axbridge PTA as your chosen charity.
The clothes bank can be found in the school carpark and takes re-usable clothes, paired shoes, hats, handbags, cuddly toys, DVDs and mobile phones.

It is wonderful that we all work together to provide the children with those extra-special experiences that they simply love.“
“Having so many parents involved in PTA activities is wonderful; it says so much about our school as a family community and sets a marvelous example of enthusiasm and helpfulness for the children.”
