What has the PTA donated to Montpelier Primary School?
Parent Teacher Association events are great fun for the children and the parents of Montpelier Primary School and the fundraising element is obviously vital to the school, as state funding to schools like ours is continually cut. Here is a list of what the PTA has fundraised from events and therefore has seen invested back into our school.
H.M.S Parents Teacher Association
Montpelier Parent Teacher Association donated a large amount of raised funds to supply and install the brand new wooden ship in the Infant playground. Hours of fun, learning by play and a productive investment to update the children's enjoyment at the school for KS1.
Your PTA donated funds for the hire of football fields for 10 matches so the Montpelier Primary School Football team could practise and compete with other local schools. 4-4-2 or 4-5-1? That is the question!?!?
Everyday Magic is a London-wide charity currently running regular programmes in the boroughs of Kensington and Chelsea and Ealing. Every year over 1,500 children aged 3 to 11 have their imaginations fired up with colourful and vivid storytelling at school.
Living Eggs is a very successful programme which has been operating throughout the UK for 10 years. Schools and Care Homes love the programme and re book year on year.

SchoolComms provides a tried and tested communication solution used by thousands of schools in the UK and beyond. Providing schools with the easiest and most effective solution for home school communication.
The Infant Train

A Head Teacher request was made for new equipment for the Junior playground. The PTA agreed and made a donation to benefit KS2 during their learning periods and playtime.
Used on a weekly basis, both projectors in the school halls were in need of replacing. The committee signed off for the purchase of two brand new projectors for School and PTA use.
With so much use on a daily basis, the School Climbing Frames were in need of major repair. The PTA were very happy for fundraising income to be used to fix these structures.
Did you know that the PTA contributed to the funding of the whole of the original ICT suite. This was a major donation for your children's advancement in IT.
Books get read and then books become worn and need replacing. The PTA signed off the request for new Classroom books and requested that they be sourced from local businesses.
The Junior Banks
The new and splendid Banks in the Junior playground is a BIG success. The PTA contributed to the cost of the artificial grass. It certainly looks great and benefits the children.
The New Stage
This is a new addition to the Junior playground. The new stage is designed for the children to perform outdoors during their time at school. The PTA saw this as a positive step for increasing child confidence.
The new canopies in the Reception playground are a welcome relief for the little one's to be outside and be protected from the elements. An excellent addition to the school.
The PTA sometimes and where needed contribute for school trips to take place for the children to advance their learning aptitude and interest.

The very popular trip to the Isle of Wight is a hi-light for Year 5. The PTA contributes to this memorable off-site trip that supports the children’s emerging independence
