The PTA embraces the ethos of our school and plays an important role in raising much needed funds for the essential upkeep of the school, it’s equipment and environment. The PTA offers an opportunity to meet and make new friends, working alongside a team of parents and teachers who share a passion and love for the School.
Why join the PTA? Is it for me?
PTAs are an essential component of a healthy school and all staff, parents and carers are welcome. We meet once every half-term, but there is no requirement to attend all meetings. However much of your time and talent that can be offered will be warmly welcomed.
Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, SJP Contacts or drop us an email at PTA@sjp.essex.sch.uk for upcoming meeting dates and event announcements. We would love to see or hear from you.
Where does the money go?
The PTA has been going for over twenty-five years contributing over £100,000 to the school.

|Magnifying reading equipment
