Fantastic news!!!! ... with the money that you have helped raise this year, school has now been able to purchase 16 iPads which will be ready for use in September. Thank you for all your support in making this happen.
To read more about what the PTA have achieved this year, please see the Annual Report below.
Even though the school holidays are (nearly) here, you can keep raising money to support the PTA over the summer:-
About the PTA
At Deighton Gates we have a thriving PTA which organises events throughout the year. The events are good fun, a great way to meet other families and raise money for our school.
All the money raised goes towards providing extra educational opportunities and equipment, making Deighton Gates a richer learning environment for our children.
For the benefit of all our children we would love everyone to join in with PTA events, whether it is as an organiser, a helper on the day or turning up to support the events.
With a little help from everyone we can make a big difference.
In 2017/18, we supported school with the upgrade of the IT suite, purchase of new carpets and lockers, bought a set of 100 books for year 5 and 6 children, and have bought new microphones and speakers to be used for class assemblies and plays. We were also successful in raising funds to purchase a public access defibrillator, located on the wall outside the school office, which is available for the wider community as well as school. (In the event of an emergency, dial 999, and they will give you the code for the cabinet. The defibrillator is fully automated - as soon as you open it, it starts talking to you and telling you what to do!). Finally, we were also able to support school with the purchase of an all weather Fitness Track which was installed over the summer - it's great to see the children making so much use of this already!
