The Vineyard School

Welcome to The Vineyard School PTA's website

We empower pupils, staff and fellow parents and carers to support the growth of each child at The Vineyard School to his or her highest potential.

We are eager to engage!

About the Vineyard School PTA

Our goal

  • Serve as a model for (fun) parental support of a state primary school in the United Kingdom.

Our role (In order of importance):

  • Connect teachers to parents and carers

  • Convene the Vineyard Community

  • Raise funds to elevate The Vineyard School beyond the level of minimum state funding. (State standards of funding do not include funding for the library, an additional photocopy machine, AV equipment, smartboards, playground equipment and many elements of the school that our children use every day.)

How we act

  • Openness: We listen closely to parents and operate transparently.

  • Efficiency: We aim to make it easy to help your child’s school and we value any form of contribution, from time to money, ideas or cake.

  • Fun: We are an inclusive group that people want to join (and are welcome to do so)

How is the PTA Structured?

The PTA is a flat organisation of which every parent or carer is an automatic member. For efficiency, there are several sections to the PTA. Core functions are the following:

1. Core support functions: Chair, Secretary and treasurer

  • Work with parents and carers to set vision and priorities

  • Ensure all necessary roles are filled

  • Enable all forms of communication

  • Account for money raised and spent

  • Sponsorship Coordinator: Find, prioritise and approach organisations local and national that may be willing to support financially or other ways

  • Ensure the legal entity delivers books to the charity commission, pays insurance, etc

  • Maintain PTA assets remain in good working order (wooden hut, noticeboard, store room, etc )

2. Class Reps: Class Rep Coordinator and Class Reps

  • Ensure each class has two Class Reps

  • Enhance connection between the individual parents and teachers in each class

3. Support Functions
