Welcome to the Eastrop PTA (Parent Teacher Association)
Hi, I’m Gillie Hudson and I will be the new Joint Chair of Eastrop’s PTA wit Sarah Nichols from September 2019. I have a daughter already at Eastrop and another joining next September.
We are a newly appointed, community spirited and friendly PTA committee, here to enable family friendly and exciting social events to happen as well as to raise vital funds for the direct benefit of our pupils here at Eastrop.
I encourage you to come and say hi in the playground, and share any suggestions with us too. Additionally, if you’re keen to become more involved in the school’s PTA then we would welcome that too! All supports is greatly appreciated.

How do we raise money?
We are always open to new ideas and suggestions but things we do include school discos, quiz nights, Christmas fair, summer fete, sponsored events, face painting and craft days. We don't just raise money, we make sure everyone has a good time doing it too!
Where does the money go?
Every penny raised is spent on the children, enhancing the provision in school and providing them with extra special opportunities. Examples of how we spend the money include, paying for the coaches used for school trips (which reduces the cost to parents), buying new reading books, creating an outdoor library/calm space in school and making wet-play bags to keep the children busy when it rains.
