PTA (Parent/Teacher Association)

The PTA have funded new books for our KS2 library


The Friends of Poplar Primary School is the parent/teacher association (PTA) for our school. All parents and guardians of children at Poplar, and all teachers, are automatically members of the PTA. We also welcome and encourage extended family members, non-teaching staff, governors and people from the local community with close links to the school to get involved in our activities.

Our purpose is to enhance the quality of the children’s education and school life. We do this by raising money to help the school pay for items that are outside the school budget. To this end, we organise a variety of fundraising events throughout the year for parents, children, staff and friends of Poplar Primary. As evidence of what we can achieve, PTA funds have recently been put towards equipment and artificial grass for the Games Zone, new KS1 and KS2 library books, a set of iPads, school trips and activity days.

We are a registered charity (Reg. Charity No. 1103926), regulated by the Charity Commission. We have a formal constitution and hold an annual general meeting every academic year (usually February/March). We also hold regular meetings throughout the year to plan our activities. All PTA members are warmly welcome to come along.

If you would like to find out more about joining the PTA, you can find out more with this poster.  If you have any questions, suggestions or feedback, you can email us at
