The PTA is an open, fun and friendly group of parents, teachers and staff, working towards a common goal; supporting the education of the children at our school and strengthening the school community.

About us

We currently have a team of 14 parent volunteers, plus a number of staff members. However, we will always need more pairs of hands! If you have ideas to share, or want to know more about the group, why not send us a message, or come along to our next meeting?

Please come and join us. Support us by attending events, tell us what we can do for you and your children, and between us, (with a little effort, and a lot of support) we will make Prince Avenue the best it can possibly be.

We have already achieved a lot, but over time you can expect to see a range of planned events and activities, member surveys, and lots more information from the PTA.

We now have our own Facebook Page, which you can like and follow for the most up to date information. You can also follow us on Instagram @paanpta

In time, we hope to introduce online booking for our events to make the process easier for everyone. Watch this space for details of progress on this.

Please continue to look out for us on ClassDojo, or check out the playground and School Foyer noticeboards.

Don't forget you are now able to send us details of your child's birthday so that we can announce this on ClassDojo for everyone to send them Happy Birthday wishes. Parents/Carers should send this by email to: including your child's name, class and age, along with a photo if you wish.

If you would like to contact us at any time, you will find our email details at the top of this page.

We look forward to meeting you all.

Your PTA Team

Design a new PTA Logo

Voting took place at the PTA meeting on Monday 3rd February 2020 to decide the winner of the ‘Design a new PTA Logo’ competition.

The competition was tight, and there were 53 amazing entries.

We are thrilled to now share with you the fantastic design, and to announce that the winner, with the most votes was Mia P, aged 7 from class 8.

Her design wowed us all. It’s colourful, well thought out and symbolises everything that the PTA is.

We would like to thank Monkey Bizness Rochford for their support and generous donation of a Family Day Pass for the winner.

A huge thank you and well done to Mia, who should be very proud.

Here she is, with her winning original design, and the finished digital logo. We hope you all love it as much as we do!
