PTA Committee for 2018-2019

Matthew Squires – Chair
Katie Hamilton – Vice Chair
Eimear Diviney – Treasurer
Miriam Dorado-Lee – Secretary

At The Lea the PTA is called The Lea School Association.  We have two aims: firstly, to raise money to benefit our children and secondly, to promote the strong sense community that exists between parents, children and staff.

All parents of children at The Lea are automatically members of the PTA.  How much you become involved is up to you: from supporting events, helping organise and run events to becoming a member of the committee…  We know how precious time is; however, if you would like to get involved, we always welcome new faces and it’s a great way to get to know some of the other parents.

Over the years the PTA has hosted a wide variety of social and fund-raising events including quiz nights, children’s discos, fancy dresses, summer and Christmas fairs, cake sales, film nights, Lego exhibitions… to name but a few!  The PTA committee is always on the look-out for new ideas for events though so whatever your area of expertise or interest, why not get in touch?

Over the years we have provided the school with iPads, an outdoor classroom, a playground climbing frame, interactive whiteboards, pantomimes, a PA system, hall lighting, library, mobile ovens, scooterpods, Y6 leavers tshirts and SATs breakfast, and many more – all of which really help to improve the learning experience of all children at the school.


PTA AGM – Tues 25th Sept, 7.30pm

September 8, 2018

The Lea School Association (PTA) will be holding its (very informal) Annual General Meeting at 7.30pm on Tuesday 25th September at the school. This is an open invitation to all parents and carers, the school staff and members of the Governing Body. The current Committee will be giving a short presentation of the events we ran in the past year and how funds raised are supporting the school and our children. The AGM is also when Committee Members are appointed for the forthcoming year. It is a great opportunity for new parents to come and meet existing families and find out how you can help the PTA support the school.
