Potterhanworth Church of England Primary School

We are a small team who aim to run fun events throughout the year for children (and parents) with the profits used to supplement the dwindling school budgets to improve the opportunities available to our children. We normally run discos, raffles, film nights and sponsored events. We are also supporting the Potterhanworth Dog show through selling tea, coffee cakes and a few fun stalls.  

The profits have contributed to support the creation of the Sensory Garden, an outdoor learning space with benches, essential early years equipment as well as books and the leavers’ ties. None of these events and improvements would be achievable without help from fellow parents.

We are always looking for volunteers to help at events and if you would like to join the committee please contact a member of the team through the school office, Potterhanworth PTA Facebook page or email

We all live busy lives nowadays juggling work, family life and various commitments so we do not expect everyone to be able to do everything. Every little helps, whether it is baking a cake for a stall, giving out hotdogs or watching a film with the kids on a film night, or even being on toilet duty at a disco. Any offers of support greatly appreciated.
