Hello and welcome to Chessington School PTA.
The aim of our PTA is to organise social events and fund raising 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 and Tony Mills, Chair of Governors, 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 events across the year, welcoming new families to the school, assisting with charity coffee mornings plus other occasions.
It is best 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 whats on will come via Facebook.
Our committee is made up of Chessington School parents/carers:
Chairman: Tracy Dale
Treasurer: Mike O’Reilly
Secretary: Charlotte Sapsed
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 and we have had one AGM to date. Our next AGM will be held Autumn 2018 term and we currently have ONE vacancy for the position of Secretary. We also hope to recruit many new members each term. You are all welcome to attend the AGM and a notice will be sent prior to the meeting.
Many parents donate a small amount each month by direct debit. Be it £3, £5 or £10 per month, every single penny counts towards much needed items for the school. You can set this up via your bank direct to the Chessington PTA bank account.

All our fund raising and social events rely on the support of parents and friends to help organise and also to turn up! Our next event is the annual BBQ & Fireworks night on Friday, 19th October from 6pm. Please see posters and our Facebook page for more info.
We would love to hear from you so do please get in touch. We hope you and your children will enjoy everything on offer at Chessington School and we hope 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 school life.
