Birchwood Grove CP School



Parent teacher association (PTA)

Parent Teacher Association is run by a voluntary committee of parents and staff. They give their time generously to organise and run a calendar of events throughout the year – discos, quiz nights, Bake off’s, summer and Christmas fayres and many more. Through these events, the parents and staff raise thousands of pounds each year. These funds have provided Birchwood Grove with a variety of resources; such as: IPads, a book vending machine, science resources and whole school playtime equipment and more.

If you have any suggestions for fund raising events or would like to get involved with the PTA we would love to hear from you. Please feel free to contact us:
Please join our facebook page:










The committee relies on parents to help run and support these events. All parents of children at the school automatically become members of the PTA and are encouraged to join the committee, or to give some time to help run the PTA events, which are all great fun and very rewarding.

Reading vending machine

The PTA recently funded the purchase of our book vending machine. This will be used across the school to recognise the children's amazing efforts with reading. Every month one child in each class will be nominated to receive the golden coin, by their peers, for something wonderful they have done with their reading. This could be for challenging themselves with their reading, or making an interesting comment about one of the characters.
