Welcome to the PTA section!
Abbotts Ann School Association (AASA)
What is the AASA?
The main objective of AASA is in partnership with the school and parents, to enhance the education and well-being of Abbotts Ann School children by providing resources and activities for pupils. The Abbotts Ann School Association has one simple aim, which is "to advance the education of the children of the school".
The (AASA) PTA Committee always welcomes new members - to ensure there is a wider group of representative to contribute their views but also to benefit from the aptitude, skill-sets and experience of our parents and staff.
Participate in meeting new people, voicing your thoughts on how money could be allocated, and most importantly making a difference to the children's experience at Abbotts Ann School are just some of the benefits you will acquire by being involved with our PTA.
Our meetings are held on a monthly basis and are open to everyone, why not come along and listen to the variety of discussion points being explored? You can contribute as much or as little as you wish and chose to get involved as much or as little as you aspire to.
If you would like any further information regarding the PTA, are interested in joining the committee or have any suggestions or ideas about fundraising, please contact Alison Palmer or Chris Brown (Co Chairs) via email or alternatively drop a note for her attention into the school office.

Saturday 30th August was our Bottle Tombola at the Village Fete which as always was a sell out! The queues formed before the Fete even opened & the stall was a huge success. A big thank you to all who collected bottles, numbered bottles and worked on the stall on the day. All the money raised goes into the fete committee to be distributed to Village Committees and Societies in November so watch this space information on for our share

Only £700 short of our target of £4000 which means we should be able to put the third phase of the outdoor play equipment in early next academic year. Congratulations to all involved!
