We meet the public benefit requirement because we are a group of volunteers who come together with a common purpose to support the school and advance the education of the children attending. We support our local school in that we meet and liaise with the principal to discuss if there is any additional educational voluntary support that we can
provide such as help with craft activities and help in the outdoor learning environment. We organise fundraising events to enable us to raise funds that we then use to purchase educational resources or equipment for the children of the school eg. Technology resources P5-7, active maths scheme for foundation stages, outdoor and wet playtime equipment for all of the pupils....
What your organisation does
Our organisation is made up of a group of elected mums, dads and staff . As a group we strive to ensure that all parents and staff are actively involved in our operation. We do this by seeking regular feedback on events and operation, looking for parental/ staff skills to aid run clubs and help at events. We believe that good communication is key
and that is why we publish regular news letters and keep the website updated. We have also developed links with the local maintained school PTA. A joint event being when grandparents and primary two children from both schools alongside both PTA's came together to rejuvenate an area of the village by planting floral displays. This was maintained over the summer by parents, children and grandparents. Through the PTA's and schools working together we are improving cross community relationships. Every year we organise a calendar of fundraising activities and these include family and children only events examples of these last year were Pudding night, Summer Fete and the children's logo design. Alongside the school we agree the expenditure of funds in that they will always be used to purchase educational resources or equipment for all the pupils in the school....
