Welcome to Clifton Hampden PTA

Our aim is to foster a strong and vibrant parent community and to raise funds to support the school in creating a rich, fun and varied learning experience for our children.

These funds go towards many curricular and extra curricular resources for the children as well as the cost of transport for swimming lessons, musical instruments and music software, a trip to the Panto at Christmas, a special Christmas lunch and exciting events such as the Bird of Prey and Falconry experience. In the past, our funds also contributed to the building of the two outdoor classrooms, supporting outdoor learning and Forest Schools.

Anyone who has a child at Clifton Hampden C of E Primary School is welcome to join our very active and sociable PTA. We meet once a term either after school or in the evenings. We have a dedicated PTA 'Working Group' of parents who help with organising events and we have a great team of parent volunteers. Our events include PTA discos, cinema clubs, dress-down days, sponsored walk, pop-up cafes, Christmas Craft Fair, Jumble sales, the Christmas Party, the School Summer Fete, Sports Day picnic, cake sales, and much more.

If you'd like to get involved with the PTA, please get in touch with the PTA Chairs  via the School Office.
