Parent teacher association (PTA)

Birchwood Grove is very fortunate to have an active and well supported Parent Teacher Association which 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. 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, interactive whiteboards, the 'Read, Write, Inc' programme and whole school playtime equipment. Recently, they funded the design and renovation of the library and learning zone to support children's education across the curriculum.

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:


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.



Recent updates from Birchwood Grove's PTA

The PTA AGM was held at 9am on 15th October 2018. In the last year we raised £9,567.50 and made donations of  £13,058.14 to the school.

We held several events over the year with the Summer and Christmas Fayres being our biggest fundraisers. The PTA would like to say a big thank you to all the parents and carers who helped at the various events throughout the school year, without your help the events would not be able to take place. 

 This year we had to say goodbye to a long standing committee member.  Sarah Plimmer has been on the committee for 9 years with her last role being Chair. We thank her for all her hard work, commitment and great leadership.

 Library and Learning Zone

The PTA funded the conversion of the computer suite into the new Library and Learning Zone. This woodland themed area is a great space for the children to support their learning. It includes computing resources, different learning zones and space for all our library books. You can see the renovation pictures below.
