All parents, guardians and teachers are automatically members of the PTA.

We have termly, informal, meetings to discuss initiatives. You are warmly invited to attend; new thoughts and ideas are always very welcome.

The PTA Meetings
The PTA events don't happen on their own. There are 3 main committee meetings each year to co-ordinate the activity. All RPA parents are invited to attend. Involvement ranges from taking organisational responsibility at committee level to helping out at one of the events. The PTA will always find something that fits the time that a parent has so get in touch or come to one of the meetings.
