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.
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.
