A Little Bit About Us


We are a group of parents who get together every few months to plan fundraising events and activities 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: Wednesday 3rd July, 7pm

Summer Fayre Raffle Prizes 2019

PTA Summer Fair 2018 Update


Saturday 30th June was the day of our annual Summer Fair and what an absolutely amazing day it was! We had pony rides, a bouncy castle & a bouncy assault course, candy floss, BBQ, raffle & tombola, refreshments including the Licensed bar and face painting.


A colossal £3,070.00 was raised, which includes the fabulous Ynot VIP tickets we were generously gifted by the festival organisers, and all of us at the PTA couldn’t be more thrilled of this record breaking amount. Some of money has now gone towards the purchase of a class set of iPads, charging station and software.


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 and 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.


We really hope to see you all again next year and thanks a million for your continued support – we couldn’t do it without you all.


Another Generous Donation!!

Following the Summer Fair, we were asked to attend the Abba tribute night at Barrington’s where we were absolutely blown away to be presented with a cheque for £400 from Mr David Thompson. This came from half of the proceeds David has raised from donations received for his magical Christmas light display at his home in Darley Dale, which is truly a sight to behold!


This money will be added to the PTA fund pot and will be put towards some more amazing things for the whole school to enjoy. We will of course, keep you updated on where the money is spent.
