Friends of Hoyle Court Primary School PTA
Here you'll find information about the Friends of Hoyle Court Primary School which is a Parent Teacher Association (PTA) group at Hoyle Court Primary School.
Information about the events we've organised can also be found by following our Twitter account
or on the
Friends of Hoyle Court Primary School Facebook Page
The Friends of Hoyle Court Primary (also historically known as the PTA) are actually a small, friendly group of parents. We organise events that the school and local community can enjoy, in order to raise much needed funds for the school.
These funds contribute towards equipment and resources which enhance the education and experience your child has at school. In the past Friends have helped to purchase class cameras, the stage and seating in the hall, sports kits, playground equipment and the polytunnel for gardening.
The Friends of Hoyle Court Primary meet roughly once a month to discuss and organise events. As a parent, grandparent or carer you are automatically a Friend of Hoyle Court. Why not join us at our next meeting? We always warmly welcome new faces.
All support, no matter how small, is really appreciated. Be that as a full time committee member, helping out at an event for half an hour or simply preparing food at home.

Minutes of Meetings & Other Information
WE TAKE CARD PAYMENTS
Why have friends set up a Uniform Shop?
- Order at school and collect from school.
Savings for you
- The prices Friends are charging represent a considerable saving over the year for the purchase of uniform. They are cheaper than other local suppliers.
The Benefit to the Children
- £1 of every purchase goes back into school. This goes to ‘Friends’ so they can continue putting on their ‘inflatables days’, subsidising class trips, buying playground equipment – and all the other extras they help with.

The Friends is a registered charity (number 1097163)with the sole aim of enhancing the childrens' school experience by providing resources and experiences. The committee members all work but we volunteer in our spare time to ensure that this occurs. If you are interested in volunteering or helping out at events, you do not need to become a committee member or attend every meeting. The more helpers we have, the more successful our fundraising events will be. A big thank you, of course, to the parents who also attend our events. 100% of the profits are returned to school.
