Friends of Deighton Gates (PTA)

As a parent, grandparent, carer, friend or neighbour of a Deighton Gates child, you are welcomed to the family that is the "Friends of Deighton Gates".



Formerly known as the PTA, we hold monthly meetings and everyone is encouraged to attend and share ideas on how to raise vital funds for our children.  It’s also a good place to have a cuppa and chat!  The more people we have as active members the easier it is to fundraise, organise family events and develop new ideas for future events. 


We hold regular, very popular events such as our summer fairs, Christmas Quizzes, school discos and bake sales hosted by the year groups.  We have been very lucky with fantastic support from local community to hold regular raffles with prizes that have included a glamping holiday, tickets to Leeds United, voucher for photoshoots, beauty treatment and the list goes on!


The success of these events has been down to the amazing support we get from parents and friends of the school.  Families have realised that these events raise money for the school and as importantly they are great fun!!


In recent years the money we have raised has funded the Year 1 outdoor area, an upgraded IT suite, a fully re-furbished Sensory Room, our all-weather fitness track, new school library books, defibrillator (which is available for school as well as the whole local community) and also an Imagination Playground resource, classroom smart-boards, microphone / speaker system and much more.   


The Friends of Deighton Gates also provides every child with a reading folder to start school with and a gift to remember their time here when they leave for high school. 


The events are a great opportunity for you and your child to socialise with other parents, staff and members of the school community.  They are great days and nights out for everyone who attends.
