Who Are We?

Welcome to all Pate’s parents from the Parents’ Association (PA) Committee!

The committee is a team of parents such as yourselves elected to keep the PA on the move. By the very fact that you are a Pate’s parent you are already a member of the PA, a registered charity.

Our aim is to do what we can to advance the education of our children by providing and assisting in the provision of facilities for education at the School – this means lots of fundraising which in turn needs lots of volunteers and support. Our aim is to keep you informed of our fundraising activities and to make it is easy as possible for you to volunteer to help at school events.

We hold Committee Meetings every half term and hold our Annual General Meeting (AGM) in the autumn term each year. The next PA Committee meeting date will be announced as soon as the school reopens.  Meetings are held in the Leopold Room in the Development Bungalow. The 2020 AGM will be held on Wednesday 7th October in the Art Gallery.

Always feel free to email us with ideas, suggestions, offers and thoughts.
