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.

Committee and Contact Details:


Issy Arnett and Sara Davies

Co-Vice Chair’s:

Bake a cake once a year for the staff room – the staff pay £5 a term which will all go to PISA. Please contact Sarah Abberley on or call on 07799 036 875 to be added to the rota.

In the Autumn term, PISA have paid for the Year 2 mosaic that was created with local artist Vicki Ostersen during Eco-Week. This beautiful mosaic was displayed during parents evening and will now be hung in the Year R construction zone. They have also paid for the hosting fee for our wonderful 3D Tour. In November, PISA have paid for a photographer to spend the day in Year R. They will take images to refresh those used on our website, the foyer and various marketing materials. PISA have also funded a videographer to come and film each year groups Christmas Performances. These will then be added to our School You Tube Channel and emailed out to all parents.

PISA is currently raising funds for a new set of iPads to replace a very old set in Owls class as well as additional reading books.



In May 2019, PISA paid for a Road Safety Magic Show for every child to enjoy! This coincided with Walk to School Week. The children absolutely loved it!


In December 2018, donations from PISA enabled the school to order 20 wonderful horseshoe tables! Every Year  1 and Year 2 classroom now has two of these tables each and Year R now have one each.

Teachers and children both absolutely love them!
