Welcome to the PTA section.
We are a registered charity -
1028813 FRIENDS OF NETHER GREEN.
The committee is currently made up of parents and is supported by other parents/carers and staff.
The objectives of this flourishing organisation are:
i) to encourage social links between all those associated with the school
ii) to raise funds to purchase items for the school
iii) to promote and support activities concerned with the education and welfare of children in the school.
Many activities have been organised by PTA since it was formed in the autumn term of 1987.
Committee members are always willing to receive offers of help for planned activities and ideas for future events. It must be acknowledged that the success to date reflects the tremendous support the Committee has been given by other parents/carers.
You can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a message at the school office.
If you would like to hire our homemade bunting, you can do so for a donation. Please contact email@example.com or leave your details at the school office.
One way we can raise extra funds for school is by receiving 'cashback' on purchases made from organisations offering such rewards.

NETHER GREEN JUNIOR’S PTA UPDATE
Dear parents and carers,
Hello from the PTA! It’s great to have our children back in school and we’re looking forward to doing what we can in these unusual times to hold some fun events for the children and raise money for the school. We raised £8,200 in our previous school year (including donations from the Co-op and HSBC). We donated nearly £7000 of this to the school during the course of the year which has been put towards the new astro turf and benches in the playground. We have also bought a sound system, dictionaries, maths equipment, books and ipads in previous years and we hope to be able to support the school again this year with the funds that we raise.
Please keep a look out in the newsletter for our forthcoming activities: We’ll be in touch very soon to ask for your lockdown memories, recipes and activities to collate into a book for sale. Forms will be going out before half term for the children to design their Christmas cards and mugs We’ll also be joining up with a local artisan bakery again this year to offer you some Christmas puds and goodies. We have other ideas – a Christmas raffle, a fun run for the children around the mile track which loops around the school, an online talent show and we will hold our sponsored read again next year with all its lovely prizes. Any other ideas – please let us know!
Did you know that Friends of Nether Green is one of the charities you can support through Amazon Smile? For those not familiar with this initiative, Amazon will donate 0.5% of the net value of any purchases you make to our school, once you have selected us as your chosen charity. To do this, you just have to visit the following link and select 'Friends of Nether Green' from the drop down menu. https://smile.amazon.co.uk/ch/1028813-0 Once you have done this, please remember to go to www.smile.amazon.co.uk every time you shop on Amazon. Only purchases made through AmazonSmile will count towards the donations. This is a great way of raising funds for the school without actually costing anyone anything! Please do support us with this if you can.
JOIN OUR FACEBOOK GROUP
We have a Facebook group called Friends of Nether Green Junior School for you to use, where we post details of upcoming events and how you can get involved. https://www.facebook.com/groups/ friendsofnethergreen/. This is a Facebook group just for parents and carers of children in the school, so you will be asked a couple of security questions to join so please remember to answer them. It’s a great way to keep in touch!
Let us know if your company can do a local charity support e.g. HSBC £1 for £1 – it really helps to boost our funds!
PLEASE HELP US!
We are a bit thin on the ground and could really do with a few more to join our committee to help plan our activities. Do you have any bright ideas as we can’t run many of our usual events at the moment!? Would you enjoy organizing our Christmas raffle? We particularly really need a treasurer as our treasurer at the moment is continuing to help us out even though she doesn’t have any children left at the school! Our Chair is also looking to stand down soon so please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org - we’d love to hear from you! That’s all for now folks, we look forward to making the PTA a success this year with your help.
