A Little Bit About Us


We are a group of parents who get together every few months to plan fun events and to raise money to be spent providing equipment and experiences for all of the children.

We always welcome new members and appreciate any help behind the scenes at our events.

If you are interested in joining us please speak to one of us in the playground, send us an email using the form below or come along to our next PTA meeting.


Next Meeting: TBC

PTA Summer Fair Update


Saturday 8th July was the day of our annual Summer fair and what an absolutely amazing day it was – the sun was shining and everything! We had pony rides, bouncy castles, candy floss, the BBQ, raffle & tombola, refreshments, face painting and we even had a visit from Matlock Fire Brigade with their engine!


A whopping £2,737.00 was raised from the day and all of us at the PTA couldn’t be more thrilled of this achievement. The money has now paid for another Interactive White Board at school and we have also contributed £20 per child towards class trips.


Thank you to everyone who got involved and gave up their time organising and helping us. For all the donations of cakes & teddies, for the many hundreds of raffle tickets sold (The Reed Sisters are awesome, selling mountains of tickets to anyone and everyone – nobody was safe!) Not to mention the countless hours spent in the background by our dedicated PTA members helping with planning to make sure all the children, families and friends of Churchtown had a fantastic day.


One thing is for sure….. Our school may be small but by golly we are mighty!


We look forward to seeing you at next years’ fair, which will be on Saturday 30th June 2018


We are busy making plans for our next events but would welcome your feedback and any ideas that are fun for the kids, the adults and both together!
