There is an active Parent Teachers Association at Otley Primary School to which all parents/carers and teachers are automatically subscribed to.  The objectives of the PTA are twofold, (i) to encourage closer links between the parents and the school community and (ii) to raise funds to source the “additional extras” which would otherwise be very difficult within the parameters of the school financial budgets. We aim to raise over £2,000pa which is quite an achievement for a school of this size. Over recent years, we have hosted events such as our annual Christmas Fayre, Casino Nights, Sports Days, Tea Parties and Refreshments in conjunction with school events.


Our aspirations are to develop further fundraising opportunities and fresh ideas from new and existing parents are always most welcome.
