What is the Friends of Horsenden PTA (Parents, Teachers Association)

All parents and carers automatically become members of Friends of Horsenden PTA when your children join our school. Parents and members of the school community can get involved in a variety of ways if they want to, even if they only have a small amount of time available.

The video below explains a little more about what we do.

Our Mission Statement

To promote partnerships between parents, students, teachers and the community that creates a positive and safe learning environment for our children to learn and grow. To raise money whilst encouraging community spirit to enable the school to improve their facilities and equipment, thus improving our children’s educational and social development.

Your PTA Committee

Mrs Salma Awees - Chair (Parent)

Mr Rahim Ismail - Treasurer (Parent)

Miss Marzena Ernest - Community (Parent)

Vacancy - Secretary

Ms Ann Marie Charles - Pupil & Family Worker (Staff)


Why join the PTA?

Our PTA is about much more than just fundraising. It also supports closer links between home and school and is an excellent way to bring staff and parents together socially in support of the school, working towards a common goal and thereby making Horsenden Primary School feel like a special place to be part of.

It's a great way of getting to know other parents. Research has shown that children do better in school if their parents get involved with school events as it gives the children a real sense of belonging.

If you'd like to get involved, in any way you can, please contact us at ptafriendsofhorsenden@gmail.com


What have we achieved?

As our PTA was only established in September 2019, we are still a very new association, however in the short time we have been active we have already raised over £2,000 from our Halloween Discos and our first ever Christmas Fayre. We are really excited to continue to arrange events and activities that will help raise funds for the school as well as bring the school community together on a more social level.

The committee would like to say a huge THANK YOU to the teachers, parents, children and the community for continuing to support our school.

Support from Parentkind (formally PTA-UK)

Our PTA is a member of Parentkind, which is a national charity and membership organisation for Parent Teacher Associations. We pay an annual membership fee, which gives us many member benefits including comprehensive insurance cover for all PTA run events, support and advice on running the PTA plus fundraising ideas and good practice hints and tips.

We raise money in other ways too. Donations from parents are extremely important. You can donate time, money, items for sale, raffle prizes and auction lots or offers of services and skills.
