Welcome to the PTA section.

Shelton J PTA 

We are a team of hard working parents and teachers who hold regular fundraising events to raise money for our school.

Latest Fundraiser


Our recent 'Summer Fair' was a huge success and raised £507. Thank you for your support in attending the event and helping to raise this money.

Our 'Dress for Summer' day and 'Raisin Box Challenge' raised £314. This has allowed us to buy new water bottles for every child in September 2016 (at a cost of £315!). Thank you to everyone who supported us in this fundraiser and well done to the winners of the sports equipment!

Our Festive Fun Bingo and Quiz Night raised a fantastic £454. Thank you for the bottle donations for our very popular bottle tombola and thank you to everyone who came and supported the school on the night.  The two nail-biting games of Bingo  proved a great success.  

The children on our School Council suggested using the £454 to fix the school bike shed, which we think is a great use of the monies raised. Our new bike shed looks great!

In addition to our Christmas event, over the Summer break the children were challenged to take part in a Sponsored Summer Reading Challenge. This raised a fantastic £588. Thank you to all the children who took part and everyone who supported them and sponsored them.  

The Shelton J PTA agreed to put the £588 towards the school's Investors in Pupils accreditation which the school (the first in Derby!) achieved in June 2015.

The money raised by Shelton  J PTA has supported the school in a number of ways:

A class budget of £50 for every class.

A new wooden shelter area at the back of the school so learning can be taken outside.

A fantastic new sound system  and DVD player for the hall.

Our fundraising also bought all the children in the school a water bottle in September 2015.

New books for the school's reading scheme have been purchased.


To be confirmed.
