Hello and welcome to Chessington School PTA.
The aim of our PTA is to organise social events and fundraising activities for the purpose of creating a community involving children, families and staff from our school and the local area. We are a parent-led association, supported by Mr Ali, Headteacher with involvement from various members of staff and the Senior Leadership Team.
We hold meetings every few months to discuss and decide upon upcoming events – some of which include a fireworks night, live bands, comedy night, pub quiz and coffee morning. We are also heavily involved in the schools' community projects like the SEN garden, the Wellbeing Room supporting mental health and The Den, supporting our rewards system.
We also support school-led events across the year, welcoming new families to the school, assisting with charity coffee mornings plus other occasions. Unfortunately due to COVID-19, all these activities have been put on hold.
It is good to keep up to date with Chessington PTA via social media. You can find us on Facebook and on Twitter. We do send out newsletters once or twice a year but generally, most of our news and what's on will come via Facebook. Due to COVID-19, we have been very quiet, but hope all that will change from September 2020.
Due to COVID-19 the PTA have not been able to fundraise for Chessington School. Parents/carers can donate a small amount each month by direct debit. Be it £1, £3, £5 or £10 per month or more, or a single donation, every single penny counts towards much-needed items for the school.
You can set this up via your bank directly to the Chessington PTA bank account.

Our committee is made up of Chessington School parents/carers:
Chairman: Tracy Dale
Committee: Liz Roberts, Irene Roberts, Clare McCarrick, Zahra Reilly, Lisa Mack, Di Stubbing and Leighann Bessant.
We are always looking for new committee members, grateful for help at events, a fresh pair of eyes and new ideas so do please get in touch if you would like to be involved.
This PTA has been operating since September 2017. Our next AGM will be held as soon as possible in the next academic year. We hope to recruit many new members each term especially from the new Year 7 intake in September. You are all welcome to attend the AGM and a notice will be sent prior to the meeting.
All our fundraising and social events rely on the support of parents and friends to help organise and also to turn up! We would love to hear from you with any ideas or help you can offer, so do please get in touch.
We hope you and your children will enjoy everything on offer at Chessington School and we can count on your support. If you have any questions then do please get in touch, not just about the PTA but also about general school life.
