Here at the Academy we are a small group of parents, teachers and governors that are working together as the Friends of Sir Robert Woodard Academy (PTA).

As with all schools we have seen a shortfall in funding for essential educational items. One area we are keen to support as a PTA is the extra-curriculum provision. At the academy we currently have extra-curricular groups that are open to all students and meet before school, at lunchtimes, after school and in some cases at weekends. The school budget can only go so far to assist with these clubs. Some of the clubs provide snacks and need other resources.  

As a PTA, unlike the academy itself, we can apply for funding from outside sources to support these activities. 

All interest and support is very much welcomed.

Hello and a warm welcome to all existing and new Parents and Carers. 

The Steering Committee held its first AGM back in October last year where we elected several the Chair and the Treasurer. We also adopted the Parentkind Constitution which means that if you are a parent or carer of a child at the academy you are automatically a member of this group and are welcome at our meetings.

 Since then, with a grant from Sompting Big Local, we have registered with Parentkind, opened a bank account and even managed to raise some funds to put in it before we were all hit by the Covid pandemic. 

At our monthly meetings held in November, January and February, we had started to plan fund raising activities for the summer term, only one of which we were able to put in place, which was the 80’s Aerobic session - an full hour of aerobics dressed in 80’s clothing, several members dressed up properly and really transported us all back, some to our youth, others to a time and dress style long forgotten! Pictures are available on request!!

We also have a large amount of secondhand uniform pieces for sale. We are in the early stages (still being sorted) of planning to be able to sell this to parents at academy events. 

All interest and support is very much welcomed.
