We welcome and encourage the involvement of parents, grandparents and the wider community as this creates a sustainable model for success.

There are variety of ways in which people can become involved.

  • Joining and supporting the PTA 'Friends of Heronshaw'
  • Joining the governing body (including in a parent role)
  • Volunteering at school

February 2023 update: There are currently 2 parent governor vacancies. 

Parents of children currently attending Heronshaw can add a huge value to discussions in the governing body meetings. Post Ofsted, school continues to develop and improve communication links and having parent views are incredibly valuable. If you are interested in finding out more, click on the link below or contact Mr Ainscow or Mrs Outtram at school.

The Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is plays a crucial part in raising money in school. This money goes straight back into the school to give children a wider range of opportunities.

The PTA was set up back in 2014 and is made up of parent volunteers, wider family member volunteers and teachers who work together to organise and run fundraising events for the children at school.

All money raised buys additional equipment and also helps to subsidise school trips for our children. Some of the events we are responsible for are:      

  • School discos
  • Summer fayre       
  • Christmas fayre       
  • Film evenings       
  • Coffee afternoons
  • Quiz nights

We would love for more parents, grandparents or friends to join our friendly ‘Friends of Heronshaw’ Group to help us raise funds for the school. 




To join the ‘Friends of Heronshaw’ group, we ask for you to attend meetings, put forward ideas/suggestions and volunteer for some fund raising events.  We understand that people have busy lives, work, children etc…, so, if you can spare a little time, we would love you to join us. If you would like further information, please leave your details at the school office or with Mrs Zastron.
