  1. Christmas Present Appeal - JT suggested that the PTA put out a Christmas appeal for presents to donate to Leicester Hospital, more specifically the people on their OAP ward over the Christmas period.  JT to arrange a box to be placed in reception for people to place their pre-wrapped presents in. 

Parentmail to be sent out W/C 4/12.  AS to ask Matt (her husband) to design a poster for this.

JT’s friend works at Leicester Hospital, so she will arrange to hand over the presents collected.

  1. School Pantomime Trip – 19th December – PTA to provide sweets to be taken with them.  AS to sort sweets out, suggested 120 small packs of sweets will be sufficient.


  1. Christmas Party Afternoon – PTA to provide pass the parcel present with lots of layers and a box of sweets in the middle for the winner.  AS and JT to arrange and wrap the present.
  2. Father Christmas Visit – To be confirmed with Kirsty whether her Dad would be willing to be Santa again this year.
  3. Christmas Class Presets – On checking the banking information for last year it was established that PTA donated £25 per year group last year.  The same amount will be provided this year.
  4. PTA Questionnaire Results – Only a few completed questionnaires received.  The suggestions received were: A Quiz Night, Movie Night, Christmas Fayre, Summer Fayre, Racenight
  5. We have a possible racenight pencilled in for 9th March 2018
  6. Family Film Night pencilled in for 23rd March 2018 – It is possible that this will be for the whole family and that children will not be left on their own.  WJ suggested that the movies are held in the classrooms as a pose to the hall so that it is a more confined space.  It was also suggested that could have 2 different movies running in different classrooms to offer choice.

  7. May Day  – It was suggested that a free bbq could be put on by the PTA after the May Day Celebrations.  Would need to look in to possible purchase of a bbq, or whether one could be borrowed.

    Could also sell PIMMS afterwards.

  8. JT to contact Rob to ask for an update on the bank account for the PTA.

    Discussed the level of uptake to join the PTA this year has not been very high from the new Reception class parents.  Any ideas on how to boost numbers would be gratefully received.
