As a parent or carer of a pupil at the school, you are automatically a member of the Parrs Wood PTA, the parent-teacher organisation. It provides you with the opportunity to promote the interests of your own child and those of other pupils whilst enabling you to meet other parents/carers and teaching staff to share ideas and participate in the decision-making process of the school.
The Association aims to create links between home and school by supporting the staff at educational evenings and organising fund-raising activities for parents, staff and pupils of the school. Our major fund-raising events over the past year have included our Christmas Markets, Quiz nights, supporting our various music and awards evenings as well as having a stall at the Didsbury Festival.
The money we have raised (in all manner of fun ways!) has enabled us to lend considerable financial support to the school. We would obviously be unable to offer such generous support to the school without the help of many parents, carers and friends who give up their time so willingly to assist us in our efforts. It is this support that makes us so successful and we would encourage you to contribute by becoming an active member.

PTA funds will go towards an outdoor dining and covered seating area for our students and teachers to enjoy.
