Who are the PTA?
We are extremely lucky to have a thriving Parent Teacher Association (PTA), a dedicated group of parents and carers who organise many social and fund-raising activities throughout the academic year. We hope all families will support their efforts to provide extra equipment and enrichment opportunities for the benefit and enjoyment of all pupils.
What do they do?
Last academic year alone, the PTA raised over £6,500 thanks to successful fundraising events and the support of our wonderful families and local businesses.
Over the last few years, this funding has provided valuable learning experiences and materials including: upgrading IT facilities; providing a mud kitchen for our EYFS pupils; paying for a theatre company to visit the school at Christmas (a real treat in light of Covid restrictions!); funding an outdoor Science classroom on the KS2 playground and contributing to other materials and resources within school, accessed by all at EBPS. 2023 also saw the return of the May Fayre which brought the whole school together for further fundraising to support our school.
How can you support the PTA?
Look out for details of fundraising events and opportunities both on social media and within our school communications. Here are some examples:

In the Autumn term the PTA held a sponsored bounce and sponsored Zumba, events enjoyed by the children which raised over £2700!
The Christmas Fayre, held at Earls Barton Working Men’s Club, raised almost £900 and saw some fabulous performances from our school choirs!
Two Popcorn and Pyjama nights were well attended and raised over £500.
Class raffles, held both at Christmas and Easter, were well supported and raised in excess of £1400
The blue clothing bin is also a way for our families and community to raise money to further enrich pupils’ educational experience. The bin can be found at the bottom of the ramp to the main office, next to the KS2 building.
The PTA hold a range of pre-loved EBPS school uniform that can be purchased at a very reasonable price. Head over to the Facebook page: ‘EB Primary pre loved uniform’ for more details.
