What is the Friends of Dolphin / PTA?

The Friends of Dolphin (Dolphin Parents and Teachers Association PTA) is a voluntary group of which we are all members as part of the school community. It is essentially a fundraising, social and community engagement group for the school.

There are other groups associated with the school who act alongside the Friends of Dolphin / PTA as follows:

  • Class Reps – a voluntary role to provide two way communication between parents and head teacher/governors. Meeting with head teacher once a term. 
  • Weekly Wednesday coffee mornings – social and informal gathering organised by the Family Support Worker (Kendal). An opportunity to have a chat with other members of the school community in an informal setting.
  • Governors – advice and recommendations to the Directors

The Friends of Dolphin / PTA is voluntary, fun and actively supports the children and the school by organising events and raising funds to buy certain items the school can’t buy. It also provides a social hub for parents, carers, children and teachers.  

The money we have raised has been used to buy equipment for the school playground, educational equipment and to fund events.

The PTA is also a social hub and we have organised some great events to date including:     

Spring Fair

Cake Sales

New Parent Welcomes

Ice Cream Sales

Parents Nights Out

Winter Fair

Christmas Cards & Tea Towels

Film Nights
