East Boldon Schools PTA Registered Charity No. 1143889
East Boldon Schools PTA is a registered charity (no 1143889) that raises money to support East Boldon Infant and Junior Schools.
The PTA is run by a committee of parents who organise various fundraising events throughout the school year.
The money raised is combined and then allocated between the schools proportionate to pupil numbers. A cheque is presented to each of the headteachers at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) which is held in the Autumn term.
The headteacher of each school decides how their allocation will be spent; typically the money is used to buy valued resources which support the children’s learning. It is often the case that without PTA contribution the school would not be able to acquire these resources within their available budget.
The PTA hold a meeting each term to review and plan future events. These are usually held midweek in the early evening in the upstairs function room of The Grey Horse pub in East Boldon.
Each meeting tends to last around an hour and is attended by PTA committee members and staff representatives from each school. Parents are warmly invited to come along and get involved.
There is never any pressure on anyone to commit to anything, but if you do feel that you can help in any capacity then we’d love to meet you. This could be helping with admin from home, getting onboard with planning and organising or helping at an event or with the tidying up afterwards.
Many hands make light work!

Our calendar of events looks a little like this. We do continually review our events and are very open to new ideas – especially from anyone who can get involved in turning an idea into reality.

Mr T Shenton– Headteacher of East Boldon Junior School
Our PTA work incredibly hard across the year to organise events and fundraising opportunities. The monies raised are shared between our schools and is welcome income for us to often purchase items or to make changes in school to benefit our children that may often take us a while to save for!
This year we used the PTA money to develop our yard area. We updated our murals that were becoming a little chipped and flaky and purchased some hanging baskets and window baskets to make our yard a little more ‘green’. The children also chose some fun, character little bins.
We are incredibly grateful for the donations given each year and will keep you up to date with each development.
