Parents Association

WHAT IS PISA?

Petersfield Infant School Association (PISA) is our PTA and is a registered charity that supports the school by raising funds for additional resources which will benefit all the children.

As a parent or guardian with a child at the school, you are automatically a member of PISA.

PISA is run by a committee and holds half termly meetings which are attended by many members. Events are run by both individuals and small teams, and supported by many of the parents for our larger events.

We arrange lots of exciting fundraising activities throughout the year including bake sales, a summer festival, Christmas fair and gifts for Mother’s and Father’s Day. The money we raise goes towards lots of things that benefit the school and your children including IPads for the classrooms and funding the coaches for school trips.

We are currently raising money to replace the bridge over the pond with a new dipping platform, so that the children can enjoy this wonderful resource fully.
