As a parent or carer of a Deighton Gates child you are welcomed to the family that is the PTA.
We hold monthly PTA 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.
Prior to Covid we held regular, very popular events such as our summer and Christmas Fairs, 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 as funded new school library books, defibrillator (which is available for school as well as the whole local community) and also an all-weather fitness track, an upgrade for the IT suite, an Imagination Playground resource, classroom smart-boards, microphone / speaker system and much more.
The PTA 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 PTA 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.

We are looking for local businesses who would like to host a stall at this event.
All we ask in return is either a raffle prize or a £20 donation to the PTA.
Our mission this year is to upgrade the outdated computing suite for the children. The devices are now feeling their age and unable to cope with the latest educational programs that the children need.
