Respect - Collaborate - Grow


Dorney School PTA


Dorney School PTA is a group of parents who volunteer their time to support the school by raising funds to pay for extras for the children.

All Parent/Carer(s) of children at Dorney are automatically members of the PTA, and are warmly invited to attend meetings or support at events to help raise as much money as possible to support children in school. Don’t panic though – there’s no obligation to take part, it’s just always easier to run events and raise vital funds if more people are able to give their time to help. Many hands make light work!

It’s great to be able to support the school and provide the children with resources that they might otherwise not have access to. It’s hard work though and we can only do it with your support.

SO, can you help us with any of the following:

1) Do you have any ideas we can use to fundraise?
2) Can you attend meetings and support the fundraising programme?

We are all busy people and there’s every chance that you might not be able to help us at all. If you can support us by helping at events but can’t get to meetings, that’s fine. If you can attend meetings but can’t help at events – no worries. We will be grateful for any input you are able to give us.

So go on, take the plunge and help us to raise even more money to make our children’s learning experiences at this young age even more exciting, helping them to create treasured memories that will last a lifetime.


We meet regularly at 7.30 pm at the Palmer Arms, Dorney and have an open door policy - we welcome new faces, so why not pop along, all your help is greatly appreciated.


Any comments or suggestions for fundraising ideas can also be left in the PTA post box (situated at the back of the school on the wall opposite the bike shed) or email us at

Dear Parents,

We are pleased to confirm we have our next Bag2School collection booked. We hope the half-term and over next few months is the perfect time to have a de-clutter of clothes, textiles, teddies etc - especially with festive season around the corner.


A complimentary Bag2School sack should be with you via pupil-mail but feel free to use any bags you have as all are accepted and the more bags the merrier as we are paid by weight so the more we donate, the more we raise for school projects!
