Welcome to your schools PTA!

Our committee is a friendly group of parents and staff who meet regularly throughout the year to discuss and arrange fundraising events. The funds raised by The Raisers and HIPA are for the extra’s which are not provided by the school budget. We aim to raise as much money as possible each year so we can keep providing the school with these ‘special’ items that make the children’s learning experiences so much more fulfilling and exciting.

Our members are:


Angie Mason


Amy Harding


Tash Grundy

Vice Chair

Lisa Clifton

Vice Treasurer

Richard Smith

Vice Secretary

Donna Smith


Like most PTAs the majority of funds are raised through the events. Some of the most popular events are the Christmas Shopping Evening (November), children’s Discos (1 per term), The Summer Fete and our annual Sponsored events. We have also printed tea towels and run many cake sales and raffles.  We are always looking to plan new events so fresh ideas are always welcomed.

There are lots of ways you can help and support your child through the Parents Association.

Offering to help with events during the year is so valuable – it really is a case of ‘many hands make light work.’ It doesn’t matter if you can’t help on a regular basis, or even if you can’t come into school.

You can of course volunteer to be a committee member and put your views and ideas forward. This is also a great way to meet new people and have a sociable evening with a ‘cup of tea and a biscuit’. We meet once a term for an hour or so.

We really couldn’t achieve what we do without the support of parents so if you are interested in joining the PTA please speak to your child’s class teacher, someone in the school office or member of the leadership team and they will be happy to introduce you to some of the parents who run the PTA.

Havelock Schools have launched a lottery, all our profit goes to our school and there is a guaranteed prize to someone on the supported list and a further chance of winning £25,000 in a separate draw every week. Start supporting now for only £1 per week!
