JOYDENS WOOD JUNIOR SCHOOL P.T.A.
Find us on Facebook JWJS PTA
As a PTA, we play a very active role in supporting the school. All parents, carers and staff are automatically members. The PTA aims to encourage good relations between staff, parents, carers and others associated with the school to support, as well as advance the education for the pupils who attend it. The objectives of the PTA are: to organise fund raising activities and to involve as many people as possible to make these activities fun!
We are always looking for input and suggestions on what else we can do to support our school. If you have any comments or ideas, we can be contacted either via our Facebook page JWJS PTA or you can leave a note in our PTA post box which is located next to the school office door. Alternatively, you can leave a message with Mrs Coates, the Office Manager, and one of our committee members will contact you.
The Charities Act 1993 requires organisations such as ours, with an annual income in excess of £1000, to register with the Charity Commission. As a charity, we must abide by the Charity Commission rules and regulations and we are bound by the constitution. Our Constitution lays down rules about how we operate as a PTA and how we conduct ourselves.

How we raise money
Throughout the academic year, the PTA arranges a variety of events which raises money for the school and, just as importantly, these events enable pupils, parents/carers and staff to have some fun together. The activities that are held during the year normally include a Christmas event, Summer Fair, Inflatables Afternoon, Discos, Ice Skating, Mothers/Fathers Day Gift Sale, as well as lots more. All events rely on generous support of parents/carers and everyone is most welcome to participate in anyway they can.
Once we have banked the money raised, the PTA Committee meet with the Headteacher and Deputy Headteacher to decide where the money is going to be spent. In the past we have been very fortunate to be able to supply the children with the following:
- New laptops and charging stations
- 2 large wooden sheds to store the PE equipment
- Additional funding for the school library
- Interactive whiteboards for the classrooms
- We also supply a large budget for the Year 6 Leavers' disco each year
This year we are planning to update our front and back playgrounds with some new safety markings, as well as some interactive games that the children have chosen. We are also looking to purchase some much needed new brightly coloured benches for the back playground.
We collaborate with the school to send out newsletters to keep you informed of any up and coming events, as well as letting you know how much money we have raised within that term.
