At Egerton School we have benefited from the support of many parents over the years and the monies raised have enhanced our children’s learning and helped make their time at Egerton fun and stimulating.
For this to continue we need the support of parents who help in a variety of ways. Some parents attend PTA meetings on a regular or occasional basis whilst others offer a small amount of time to help out with an event, e.g. helping to supervise a school disco. We appreciate that not everyone can attend meetings and events. Some parents decide to make an annual donation to the PTA fund instead.
Updates on meetings and events are detailed in the weekly school newsletter so please get involved and let’s continue to improve our fantastic school!
