PTA

Just by sending your child to Cottons Farm Primary school you are already a member of the PTA. This section of the website is designed to keep you in touch with what fundraising events are being held at the school and how your money is being spent.

We are currently raising funds to purchase books to support Reading for Pleasure

But it’s not just about pounds and pence. The PTA holds many social events during the year so you can meet other parents and feel like you’re part of the school community.

Forthcoming events run by the PTA:

For more information on how to take a more active role as part of the PTA please contact Miss Lambert.

  • Year 6 books ‘Leavers’ gifts funded every year as a celebration of each child’s school life at Cottons Farm as they transfer to secondary school
  • Provided class Christmas Parties and gifts
  • Purchased plants and seeds to grow in the allotment.
