Friends of Sherdley Parents' Teachers Association (PTA) - Sherdley Fundraising Group

Keep checking this page for news and dates of events. To contact the PTA please email:

We had a PTA meeting this morning and it has been decided to reform the PTA due to a very limited number of parents engaing with the meetings - this has reduced dramatically over the last 18 months. Over the years the PTA have always done a wonderful job organising events and raising extra money for school. The money that has been raised over the last few years has helped school purchase things such as:

  • new KS2 staging/lighting and microphones
  • playground markings on the Receptiona dn KS1 playgrounds
  • reading corners in classrooms
  • part set of class based ipads
  • covering the cost of two pop-up theatre shows for all children in school
  • money towards transport costs for the choir to attend Young Voices in Manchester
  • reading sheds for each playground (yet to be order - but watch this space)
  • donation towards cost of providing a 'Learning To Work' priogramme delivered by The St Helens Chamber for years 4,5 & 6 
  • 60 STEM science kits (just been ordered)
  • Providing daily breakfasts for the year 6 pupils prior to the KS2 SATs
  • school banners
  • and lots of other small items over the years

Moving forward the PTA will be renamed as the 'Sherdley Fundraising Group', with the aim and hope that more and more parents will help with the fundraising iniatives. This year we have planned for several events across the year -

Winter Bingo Night / Easter Bingo Night / Mothers' Day Shop / Summer Festival.

Meeting of the fundraising group will be promoted once some dates have been set. Please, please be part of the group, as they provide additional support with school funding - things that we struggle to pay for out of the ever tightening school budgets.
