As a parent of a child at Probus Primary School you automatically become a member of the Probus Parent and Teacher Association.  New committee members are 'volunteered' each year but we would love to welcome you to our informal meetings so that you can get to know us and perhaps get more actively involved in the life of the school and our community.  We are always looking for new ideas!

The PTA is a very active body that works hard to raise money for the school and provide opportunities for parents to get to know each other and share the challenges of being a parent.  Money raised during the year has been used to help provide those 'luxuries' not easily provided through the school budget.  We have provided a gazebo on the school field, play equipment for KS2 playground, new playground markings in KS1 playground, benches and digital cameras and provide each class with £100 to spend each academic year for those extra bits and bobs which are 'nice-to-have's' such as beanbags, software educational games and additional art and sporting equipment.

During the year we aim to support a varied programme of school events in addition to organising and running the Christmas and summer fayres, seasonal discos, Mother's Day/Father's Day Secret Shopping Rooms, Family Bingo Night and the Year 6 leavers VIP day.

Every member of the Probus Primary School PTA is expected to adhere to the PTA Code of Conduct.
