Greeting from the PTA!
The NJA PTA are a group of parents, carers and teachers who meet every half term throughout the year to plan and organise fundraising events, and ways in which the academy community can be supported.
All parents/carers of pupils at NJA and any members of staff can be a member of the PTA. Just come along to the meetings or keep in touch through the social media page on Facebook to contribute as little or as much as you can.
We realise that time is precious, however if you decided to become a more active member of the group, even if you only have an hour to spare, there are always tasks you could do to help: taking event admissions, serving teas/coffees at a car boot sale or any school events that are held.
Each year, the PTA fundraise in a variety of ways, which include: a winter and spring disco, a summer fayre, a Christmas fayre, refreshments at sports days and music events.
Each term, the year groups and different departments of the academy, are asked to make a bid for funds that the PTA have raised. Recent purchases have included:
- Sports equipment
- Musical instruments and tuition
- Athletic vests for when teams are representing the school
- Camera, laptop and printer to enhance student learning
- Media editing equipment
- Wall hangings for the corridors
If you are interested in joining the PTA, please get in touch with the reception, who will be able to support your request.
