Come Support the PTA

Come and join us at our 1st PTA meeting for this academic year! See you there!

  • DATE :             Tuesday 30th August
  • TIME :              7pm
  • LOCATION :   Kingswells Primary School

We are seeking new members for the committee as quite a few of lour long serving members have now resigned because their child has moved on to the Academy or is in the last year(s) of  Kingswells School.

The school has been fortunate to have had an active supportive PTA over many years.  It fund raises to  allow staff to purchase resources, materials and experiences for our children that otherwise would not be possible.  These have included:-

  • Transport costs for school trips
  • Maths, Language & Science resources
  • iPads, mini iPads & iPad accessories
  • Whiteboard speakers or every classroom
  • Nick Sharratt (Reading Patron) visits
  • Christmas craft materials
  • Christmas show licenses
  • Nursery play equipment
  • Pupil First Aid courses
  • Espresso & Manga High licenses
  • Playground repairs & improvements

We would encourage you to have a look at the PTA video for more details of what the PTA does and consider becoming involved with FUNdraising that benefits all our children from Nursery to P7.  Please get in touch!

Kingswells Parent Council and PTA AGM – Monday 8th September @ 1900

You are invited to attend Kingswells School Parent Council and PTA AGM on Monday 8th September at 7pm at Kingswells School.

There will be a short presentation from the Parent Council and PTA activities and accounts.

Mrs. MacIver, Acting Head Teacher, will share an overview of the developments within the school in the past academic year as well as the priorities the school will be working on going forward.

Councilor Delaney will also be available for a short question and answer session with parents to discuss issues affecting our local community including housing development, transport and super fast broadband.

If you are interested in learning more about what goes on at Kingswells School, please come along. This can be to contribute or just to listen. It may reassure you to know that we already have nominations for the major roles on both committees so you will not feel pressured into making any commitments.
