Our aim

The school’s priority this year – agreed by the Head and Governors – is children’s well-being, focusing on outdoor resources.

This year the PTA aims to raise £10k to support this priority by contributing towards

  • Refurbishing Nursery outdoor facilities
  • Re-marking the yard to facilitate learning and play

What parents and staff say

We ran a survey in June 2018 asking parents for their views on the PTA. Families engaged, we had 160 responses; there are 280 families and 410 children at Ysgol Pen-y-Garth.

Plan for 2018-19

We have a plan of events for this year built on the success of last year’s events and people’s suggestions and ideas for new events. All our events are included in the main school calendar on this website.

Help us raise more money

Cash donations

So that we can hold fewer, high quality events, focus more on community and to give people the option to contribute when they are not able to attend (if they want to!) we have set up a MyDonate page.

You can give a one-off or regular donation. You can also let us claim gift aid on your donation. Link to come
