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, setting up at events… 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. Following the recent EGM, we now have a newly appointed PTA committee and we are delighted to welcome the following people into the roles below:-
PTA Leaders :
Sarah Faulkner - Co-Chair
Becky Smith - Co-Chair
Claire Haworth - Secretary
Amy Bunnell - Treasurer
See us in the playground!
We would like to thank the outgoing PTA committee made up of Chris Nixon, Caroline Sharp, Bryony Jones and Nicola Brinkman for their incredible efforts over the years.
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
• New ICT equipment (This is our main focus currently)
Ways we raise funds
The school and the PTA look out for local and national grants that we can apply for to aid the school in its projects. We have been successful in obtaining several grants recently from the Co-op and Morrisons.

Before Covid-19, the PTA held regular social events throughout the year. Our main events in the past have been our Summer Fair, Christmas Fair and Halloween Disco. Of course, our ability to hold events has been restricted over the last couple of years, meaning some of the younger children in the school, their parents and carers may not have heard much about the PTA or even experienced our events.
BUT, we are now back with a BANG!! We have an exciting schedule of events planned for the remainder of this academic year and into next year!!
