PTA Minutes (Agendas/Questionnaire Responses)

Can you help at Pilsley Village Fair or Pilsley Fell Race in aid of School funds?

PTA Meetings held on Fri 3 February


On this occasion, very few people attended the meetings, and in fact Fri 9am was best attended. 

Not having an imminent event, we were able to discuss general issues and agreed the following:

  • Purchase stronger badges for maths whizz etc
  • Do another Calendar for 2018 OR 2019 but prepare it from July, and print to orders taken in October.
  • Do an item with self-portraits on but prepare it in September and sell it earlier.
  • Easter Egg Hunt & challenges set by Marie for Thursday 6 April morning.
  • Book the Pig Race for March/April 2018 and sell tickets to the wider community from the start.
  • Try for an evening meeting at Cavendish Club or Hassop Station Cafe (in summer) to enable working parents to come if they want to (otherwise stick to the dates committee can make!)


PTA Questionnaire Results May 2016

Returned Questionnaires Oct/Nov 2016


There was a feeling that some parents or carers would like to attend a PTA mtg but couldn't attend on Fridays at 9am, therefore the questionnaire was hastily sent out to see if this was true and gather other information/ideas.  Unfortunately only 6 were returned so difficult to analyse!


However, it was very clear that cotton bags would be popular, so we have gone ahead with taking orders.

Families are already looking forward to the Pig Race on Sat 14 January 2017, which is very good news.

Thanks to those who offered help at Christmas Fair, Summer Fair and Village Fair . . . we won't forget!


Regarding PTA mtgs, the questionnaires returned indicated the most popular times are Thursday and Friday 9am and Friday after school, and the core of the committee can all make Friday morning 9am in school.  We will pursue an a meeting at another time occasionally - keep checking the webpages.


Interestingly 50% (3) wrote that they thought Dads COULD organise an event.  50% (3) thought they couldn't/wouldn't.  Where do you stand on this? (50% of 56 families is a lot of Dads!)
