Parent Teacher Association
The PTA exists to fundraise for the school and be a forum for parents and carers interested in school life.
We are always delighted to see parents or carers at the meetings, but if this is not possible parents can sign up to Classlist to connect with other parents and carers and keep up with PTA events. You can register here. There is also a Classlist app you can download.
We are delighted to say that Rutlish PTA has again been approved by Co-op for October 2020 to October 2021. Last time, the school community managed to raise over £11,000 with the Co-op, so please do make sure you register in store when they open and get yourself a loyalty card that can be tapped every time you shop in person or on-line.

We would like to ask parents to support the school by signing up to Easyfundraising. For every purchase you make on-line a donation is made to the school. For more details on how to register please use this link.
If you are buying online through Amazon please purchase using SmileAmazon and not through the Amazon main site and choose Rutlish School as your designated charity. Rutlish PTA receives a percentage of items purchased this way.
We organise social events for parents such as quiz and bingo nights and support the school at official events such as the Open Evening and Parents’ Evenings and to raise money to help support the school and the education of the students.
Parents/carers of Rutlish students automatically become members of the PTA. Membership is also open to staff and friends of the school. Members are also involved in the Rutlish Foundation and the Old Rutlishians to promote communication between all parties interested in Rutlish School.
Some examples of what the PTA has funded over the last few years are: sports kit, sports day medals, 6th form laptops, SEND dept computers, equipment for the Science dept, Media Studies equipment, library shelving, linguaphone equipment and Place2Be wellbeing equipment.
Meetings are held twice a term. These are informal and are open to all parents/carers and staff. Dates are found in the school calendar. Every other meeting is either a forum meeting where a member of staff or governor is invited to give a short talk about life at Rutlish, or is a general meeting where the usual issues are discussed.
