Ashmole Primary Parents and Teachers Association (APPTA)
The Ashmole Primary Parents and Teachers Association (APPTA) arranges a variety of social, educational and money raising functions throughout the year for the benefit of our children attending Ashmole Primary School. All parents/carers of children attending the school are automatically members and are welcome to attend the regular meetings to discuss events.

What is the role of a PTA?
PTAs bridge the gap between the school and parents, in relation to events and fundraising. They are best known for their fundraising work, but they also have a social function. Fundraising events provide an opportunity for parents, staff and pupils to get together.
What is a formal committee?
A formal committee is a group of people elected for a specific function by a larger group and typically consisting of members of that group.
Every parent or carer, is automatically a member of the APPTA, but not of the formal Committee, unless they opt in at the Annual General Meeting (AGM).
Some meetings will be an open invitation to all, but the monthly meetings will remain for the committee members only.
