The John Port Spencer Academy Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is a charity body which relies on volunteers and organises up to 25 fundraising events each year. Funds raised by the PTA are channelled back into the school, providing funding for equipment or student opportunities that would not otherwise be possible from normal budget allocation.
Recently, the PTA were able to support requests ranging from magazine subscriptions to larger investments such as defibrillators across the site and seating in the library.
For more info about getting involved (even if you can just spare an hour in the school year!) or if you are a staff member looking to make an application to be considered for funding, please do not hesitate to email us: PTA@johnport.derbyshire.sch.uk
The PTA has a Facebook page (JohnPortSpencerAcademyPTA) where we post about our events and projects. Please ‘like’ our page and sign up for notifications if you wish to receive PTA updates.
