Ousedale PTA

Welcome to the Ousedale PTA

Our objective as a PTA, is to raise funds and provide a link between the school and families to assist in ongoing improvements and initiatives to enhance our children’s educational experience at Ousedale School.

How To Contact Us

If you would like to join the PTA; have any questions you would like to raise; or some amazing fundraising ideas, please feel free to contact us on PTA@ousedale.org.uk.

As this account is run by volunteers, please allow 5 working days for a response. If you have an urgent matter that needs attention, please contact the school directly.

Latest update from the PTA!

We’re delighted to be able to share the news that Ousedale PTA is now a registered charity (charity number: 1207201).

There are a number of benefits to registering with the Charity Commission including:

  • Being able to receive charitable donations from local and national companies
  • Being eligible to apply to grant-making charitable trusts
  • Being able to receive donations made through payroll giving and matched giving schemes

We’re now in the process of registering with HMRC in order that we can also get tax back on Gift Aid donations.

PTA Projects

Uniform Assistance - We have recently supported 7 families with uniform assistance, across both campuses.

Willen Hospice - We continue to work with local shops to collect uniform donations with a dedicated area set up in the school holidays. Uniform can be bought throughout the school year when available.

Cook-Away - We are proud to have supported the Food Tech team in providing these sessions to pupils in association with St Mark's Meals. This has been a huge success!

Winter Coats Collection and Redistribution - We were blown away with the support from our families and communities who donated. Most of the coats have been distributed at our Olney campus, but we still have some available at our Newport Pagnell campus, so please do get in touch with the relevant PAL if your child requires a warm coat this winter.
