Welcome to Ashford Hill Primary School PTA Web page



All parents, carers, guardians and staff are automatically members of Ashford Hill Primary School PTA and are welcome to attend meetings. Please don’t be shy, we would love to see you there.


What The PTA Does

We are passionate about our school and helping the children be the best they can be. Over the years we have raised money to help the school in numerous ways, but when we were asked last year if we could fund raise toward replacing the Wooden, we knew it would be a big challenge. Thanks to the huge effort from children, parents and staff we made it happen and we are very proud of the results.


We are always looking for new fundraising ideas and opportunities, but we usually raise money through fun events and initiatives:

  • Summer Fete
  • Christmas Fayre
  • Bake Sales
  • Bags to School
  • Christmas Cards


Last year we also held Film Nights for the children,  camping in the summer and an Easter Egg Hunt. If you have any ideas, please do let us know.

Spends its money to enrich the children’s education

Following on from replacing our 'Wooden' play area, we are looking towards funding new P.E equipment and other items for the classes. 


More recently we have contributed towards/purchased:

  • New school Wi-fi system
  • Doodle Maths software subscription
  • Subsidised school trips
  • New dictionaries for Hornbeam class
  • New atlases for all classes
  • Year 6 day out after the SATS finished
  • Year 6 breakfasts each morning before SATS
  • New storage and step in Maple
  • Lovely new wooden welly racks outside Maple and Chestnut
  • Guinea pigs for Willow class


Helps the School

  • Helps with the Christmas and Summer Parties
  • Provides refreshments at the Christmas and Summer Production
  • Provides leaving gifts for Year 6
