As a parent or carer of a pupil at the school, you are automatically a member of the Parrs Wood PTA, the parent-teacher organisation. It provides you with the opportunity to promote the interests of your own child and those of other pupils whilst enabling you to meet other parents/carers and teaching staff to share ideas and participate in the decision-making process of the school. Furthermore, our social events are very enjoyable.
The Association aims to create links between home and school by supporting the staff at educational evenings and organising fund-raising activities for parents, staff and pupils of the school. Our major fund-raising events over the past year have included monthly table top sales, selling refreshments at the Annual School Production and at various music and awards evenings as well as having a stall at the Didsbury Festival.
