Parent Teacher Association (PTA)

Contact us at

New Ash Green Primary School has an energetic friendly and hard-working PTA which organises fund-raising events throughout the school year. We understand that there are many pressures on time and money, so in recent years the PTA has concentrated on regular events that are a mix of fun times for the children and easy money-making ventures, such as the recent successful recycling schemes.

The PTA seeks to raise funds to benefit the children in school. There are some events which the PTA pays for in total on a regular basis such as visits into school for all children from KIC Theatre, a visiting pantomime for all children to enjoy at Christmas and the funding of gifts and the disco for year 6 leavers. The PTA also renewed sports kit last year for our teams and have helped the choir.

Other events are put on by the PTA working with the staff for everyone to enjoy. There are fairs at Christmas and in the summer, cake sales and non-uniform days. There have been successful and popular Pamper evenings for ladies as well as entertaining Quiz nights and a circus, which the PTA would hope to repeat in the future.

Second Hand Uniform

Jayne Mcarthy is now the lady who deals with second hand uniform.  Her email address to request items is   The idea will be that Jayne will receive emails for requests for second hand uniform rather than standing outside with the rail once a week.  Any enquiries should be emailed to Jayne who will then sort out the order.  There is also a Facebook group.  Jayne has also produced a stock sheet which will be sent out to parents.

Who are the PTA?

We are all parents of children at New Ash Green who give up their time and energy to organise the events we put on. Some of them are very time consuming so new people and willing helpers are always welcome. The PTA is affiliated to the NCPTA (National Council of Parent Teacher Associations) and abide by their constitution. This means there must be an AGM, Chair and Treasurer with minutes kept. There should also be teacher representatives. A great strength of New Ash Green PTA is that there is great teamwork and that we organise everything ourselves. A lot of PTA’s now buy events in at great expense. Our aim is to keep costs as low as possible.
