Welcome to the Norris Bank Parent Teachers Association (PTA)
The PTA brings together parents, staff and carers to raise money and support the school. The funds raised are used to provide resources that the school budget would not normally stretch to. The PTA is involved in a range of activities including:
- Raising funds to help the school provide additional resources for the children
- Organising fundraising events for parents and children
- Subsidising school trips, outings and other special events
- Organising monthly meetings to ask parents about how the PTA can help the school
Over recent years, the PTA have raised funds for:
- Key Stage 2 playground resurfacing, shelter and seating
- Key Stage 2 playground gazebo, trim trail and sports markings
- Key Stage 1 playground shelters, activity boards, hoop and climbing wall
- Reception playground overhaul
- Blinds and PA systems in the School Hall

How Can You Help?
There are several ways in which you can help raise funds for the PTA:
- Lucky Lotto: How would you like to help raise funds for your school and be in with the chance of winning a cash prize every month?
Norris Bank Lucky Lotto is a private monthly lottery draw, run by the PTA, which is open to parents, friends and relatives of pupils at Norris Bank Primary School. You can enter the draw by purchasing a Lucky Lotto Number, or more if you would like. Each month all the Lucky Lotto Numbers will be entered into a random draw and a cash prize will be awarded to the first 3 numbers to be chosen with a 1st prize and 2 runners up prizes. The amount of money won will depend on the number of entrants. Half the money raised goes towards the PTA fund and the other half will be shared between the winner and the 2 runners up. The more participants the larger the cash prize!!!
Each Lucky Lotto entry costs £2 per month, and this can be paid monthly or annually, by standing order or bank transfer. Winners are notified by Email with prizes to be collected from the school office. The winning number and prize money will be announced in the Friday issue.
