Beaconside (PTA) Parent Teachers Association


Welcome to our PTA page!

We are a group of parents and teachers who work to raise funds to support and enhance the learning of our children at our School.  We run several events a year for children and their families to enjoy and at the same time, raise money for treats, trips and visitors to school.  We would be delighted if you would like to come along to our meetings and join us (or simply to find out a bit more about what we do and how we do it).  Please see our recent newsletter for further information.

If you would like to come along to our meetings, we meet about once a half-term.  The dates of our next meetings are:

Monday 5th March and Monday 23rd April 2018. Meetings are at 3.30pm at school. Children are welcome.

We now have a Facebook group - simply search for PTA for Beaconside School and Acorn Nursery, answer a couple of security questions and you’ll be able to follow what we are doing, how we are doing with raising funds and volunteer to help at upcoming events.

Raise money for us, when doing your internet shopping (without costing you anything)

Did you know that whenever you buy anything online - from your weekly shop to your annual holiday - you could be collecting free donations for our PTA?

There are over 3,000 shops and sites on board ready to make a donation, including Amazon, John Lewis, Aviva, thetrainline and Sainsbury's – it doesn't cost you a penny extra!

  1. Head to https://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/beaconsidepta/ and join for free.
  2. Every time you shop online, go to easyfundraising first to find the site you want and start shopping.
  3. After you’ve checked out, that retailer will make a donation to your good cause for no extra cost whatsoever!

There are no catches or hidden charges and Beaconside PTA will be really grateful for your donations.
