Kelly Broster Chair of the PTA
We are the PTA and we organise events for Elson Infant School to bring together the school community and raise money for extra equipment to benefit all the children.
In the last year we have contributed to the new hall floor. We will also be contributing towards the redevelopment of the library happening this year. We hosted a Magicians Picnic for the school, organised a Year 2 party for the leavers and paid for chocolate for the children at Christmas.
We raised the money for this by hosting the following events:
- Christmas and Summer Fayre
- Mother’s Day and Father’s Day shop
- Spooky Disco, Friendship Disco and Summer Disco
- Royal Wedding Party
- Easter Egg Trail in the local community
At our AGM we have been able to welcome new members to our expanding group of dedicated parents.

We have already held our first few events – the back to school coffee mornings and Macmillan coffee morning – thank you to everyone who supported us! We are currently organising this year’s Spooky Disco on the 1st November as well as the Christmas Fayre on Saturday 1st December, and hope to see lots of you there. Please keep an eye out for more details nearer the time.
None of these events would be possible without the wonderful team effort from everyone involved and we are always grateful to all the parents and staff who pull together to make them happen. If you would like to help out at any events, or would like to join us, do not hesitate to get in contact.
