Welcome to Lowercroft Primary School PTA (Charity number: 1176048)
Everyone linked to the school automatically becomes part of our PTA. We encourage you to get involved in any way you can, whether that be through helping out on a stall at an event, delivering leaflets, helping to plan an event, creating posters… the list is endless! There really is a task for everyone.
We raise a huge amount of much-needed money for the school. As always, any help, ideas or support are greatly appreciated, as are new helpers!! We would love to see you soon...
The PTA sees a natural turnover of parents each year with people leaving and new parents joining. We are currently looking for people to help in accounting. If this is something you can do please contact us.
PTA Leaders :
Caroline Sharp / Chris Nixon - Chair
Nicola Brinkman - Secretary
Bryony Jones - Treasurer
See us in the playground!
The PTA work closely with the school to raise money for any items not covered by school budgets. Mrs Farr keeps us informed of the exciting plans for the children and where the PTA can help develop the projects that benefit them.
Items the PTA have bought for the school include:
• Fantastic interactive whiteboards
• Subscription to Maths app
• Class Books – This is a current focus for the school and PTA
Ways we raise funds

Before Covid 19 we used to hold regular social events throughout the year. Our aim was to entertain the children whilst allowing the parents to meet up and get to know each other better. Our main events have been.
Unfortunately this year it looks like we will be limited in our ability to hold events. We are therefore looking at other avenues and would welcome help from anyone with ideas.
Each academic year we hold a 50/50 club lottery. It costs £1 per month and half the proceeds of the tickets sold goes towards the fundraising objectives for the school. The other half forms part of the lottery for all the people who entered. There are three draws a month and these draws are held in school, usually in assembly.
