Welcome to another fantastic year at Bishop Alexander L.E.A.D. Academy, whether it’s you first year or last year. Our objective is to bring to you and your children enriching enjoyable programs and activities.
Who are we?
We are a group of parent and staff volunteers who give up their time to create better learning experiences for our children through organising fund raising events and activities. This in turn improves our school and brings the whole community together. It gives our parents the opportunity to get involved in their child’s education, make a difference and have a say.
Don’t be put off if you feel you cannot give your time, haven’t been asked or are unsure what’s involved. Everyone is welcome!
- We have parents who work part-time or full time. Any time you can give is welcome. Some members come to meetings when they can, others support behind the scenes and some come and volunteer on event days.
- Having a child at this school means you can join us. We can use any skills you have and you might also learn new ones.
- Being involved is a great way to know the school and other parents
What sort of events do we run?
There has been many fundraising events and activities which we have run of the past years which include Chocolate Bingo, Fairs, Discos, Cinema evenings, Danceathons, fancy dress days, Frozen Fridays, penny wars… and our biggest and most successful event which the whole community has got involved in has to be Bishop’s Music Festival!
However we want to try and keep things fresh and new so news ideas shared are always great.
What is the money raised spent on?
The PTA work with school to decide on how funding is spent to enrich the children’s learning further. We have raised over £8000 in the last three years which has been spent on items such as camera’s, playtime equipment, sport’s kits and our magnificent log cabin which is used for tuck, as a break time and lunch time chill area to read and relax on the sofa’s and comfy chairs as well as being used for clubs. Every year we also raise money for both local and national charities too.
We have had lots of new suggestions from our PTA members for our next fundraising project.
Watch this space!
