Welcome to La Mare De Carteret Primary School
Good news! As a member of our school community you are automatically a member of our PTA.
We are very lucky to have an active and well supported PTA but ultimately our success is down to the support of our children and their families. The PTA is a group of parents and teachers who meet every couple of months to plan fundraising activities. We are always looking for new members and new ideas. Being a member doesn’t require a lot of time, you can give as much or as little time as you have, any and all help is appreciated – even if just once a year serving hot dogs at the disco!
All the money we raise gets put back into the school for the benefit of all our children and the staff. Over the years the PTA have purchased iPad’s, camera equipment and sports kits. On a larger scale we have also funded the refitting of the junior work area, replacing all the tables and chairs in this area and we have funded the annual subscription to Mathletics, which at over £1000 a year, is a considerable investment in supporting the mathematical development of our children. More recently we have purchased wetsuits to enable the introduction of sea swimming sessions across the whole school.
Please note that even if you don’t want to commit to joining the PTA committee or attend meetings, there are plenty of opportunities to help out in school. Parents often help with reading, maths passport testing, sea swimming and trips. Even if you can spare only 30 minutes a week – it can be a great help!
If you are interested then please come and find one of us or contact the school office.
