It’s great to see work on the new playground well underway – we’re as excited as the children! Past PTA fundraising meant we could contribute £40,000 to help make this project possible – and we have high hopes that we’ll be able to help with more great projects for the school this latest academic year too.

Total raised so far this year: £7,303
A big THANKS and WELL DONE to everyone who’s volunteered, supported and taken part in events so far this year. We’ve raised money from the School Disco, Cake Sale and Second Hand Uniform sale, Christmas Cards, Christmas Shopping Night and the Christmas Fair. By the end of the academic year we’re hoping to match (or beat!) last year’s total of £16,463.

About the PTA

Helping with projects like the new playground is a big part of what the PTA is all about. With increasing cuts to education funding, it’s more important than ever. But as well as raising money for school equipment and resources to enhance our children’s lives, the PTA also helps bring teachers, staff, parents and carers together. Whether it’s a social gathering or a fundraising event, we come together as a community with a common goal.

We’re all a part of it!
Every parent, carer and teacher is automatically a member of the PTA. Earlsfield PTA has gone from strength to strength over the last few years, with more classes, pupils and parents/carers than ever before. We try to encourage events that embrace the diverse and culturally enhancing intake of Earlsfield’s children. It’s only through your help that we can grow and improve this each year.

The Committee

The PTA committte currently consists of 7 members so it's generally easy to grab one of us in the playground if you want anything or need any questions answered.

We meet regularly to discuss plans for each term and year. Every event, from cake sales to bigger events like the quiz, disco or Christmas fair, is led by reps from a chosen year group.

Class Reps


Each class has two representatives (Reps) who act as a point of contact between the committee and class group. Reps hold meetings as required, depending on forthcoming events.

Our Reps are the social organisers for their classes, helping coordinate events such as discos, quizzes or cake sales and running stalls at the Christmas and summer fairs. Class Reps normally have their position for one year but often more!

Annual General Meeting


There is an AGM in September each year to which everyone is invited to attend. The treasurer presents a review of funds raised from the previous year and outlines where the money has been spent within the school.
