Welcome to the PTA
The Cookham Dean School PTA is a registered charity set up to raise much needed funds for the school. All parents of children at the school automatically become members of the PTA and your input and assistance on fundraising events throughout the year is very much appreciated.
The current officers of the PTA are:
YOUR PTA NEEDS YOU:
Following a very successful year three of the current officers of the PTA will be standing down in September 2019. We are, therefore, looking for some parents to step forward and take on the roles of Chair, Co-Chair and Secretary for the 2019/2020 School Year. If you have any interest in any of these roles and would like to know more, please contact Charlie (firstname.lastname@example.org), Claire (email@example.com) or Jackie (firstname.lastname@example.org) and they'd be happy to give you more information about the roles they currently hold. Alternatively, look out for any of us at the school gates :-)
Feedback to the PTA Committee:
If you would like to provide any feedback on the fundraising events held by the PTA, the projects/items the funds raised are spent on or have any ideas for fundraising activities, please put them in an envelope addressed to the PTA Committee and post it in the School postbox.
We use an online communication tool called PTA Social to help us to communicate more directly with parents and keep them up to date with all the latest news and events. It gives parents an opportunity to volunteer their help in an easy, transparent format. If you have not already signed up to PTA Social, use the link below.

This year's Summer Fete was held on Saturday 29th June - the hottest day of the year so far! The Wild West Howdown was a great success and all who attended enjoyed themselves. Thank you to everyone who helped in any way to make this event the success it was. We're counting up how much was raised and will confirm this in the near future.
