Halterworth School Association (PTA)
We have a very active Parent Teacher Association called the Halterworth School Association (HSA) which raises thousands of pounds each year to buy equipment and resources to enhance our children’s education. But it is much, much more that just fundraising! The HSA creates closer links between home and school and brings staff, parents and friends together socially in support of the school. And it’s fun! All parents and members of the school community can get involved if they want to, even if they only have a small amount of time available, and all parents are automatically members of the HSA when they join our school. Not all events are run purely as fundraisers. For example, celebrations, and seasonal fayres are run with the aim of providing the children and their families with enjoyment and to develop a community spirit.
Previously, the HSA have raised funds to improve the outdoor environment available for our children. Our outdoor fitness equipment is very popular and the children also benefit from a multi-use games area on the KS2 playground for ball games. They have a climbing frame known as “pick up sticks” and, in the KS1 playground, the children have a pirate ship and a train, as well as a fitness trail.
