The PTA is run by parents at the school, who volunteer their time and expertise. We currently have a committee of 8, with a large group of other parents supporting in the running of events.
The PTA raises money, which is then used to the benefit of all the pupils in the school. Many PTA events are keenly awaited by the children as highlights of the year.
Funds raised go towards subsidising coach travel for class trips, and each class teacher receives a small sum each year to purchase items for their classroom.
Other funds are used to support larger projects – in recent years the PTA has funded the Outdoor Classroom (Gazebo), Storytelling chair & amphitheatre, the KS2 outdoor play equipment, a new PA system, stage for school performances and stage lighting.

Big Run, 14th September 2014
In 2013 we held the 1st Hertford Heath School Big Run. It was an amazing success and raised £2,465. It was a fantastic afternoon and a great family event. So we are doing it again this year.
Participants run/walk/hop/skip a 1 mile course through the village, starting and finishing on the school field, where there is also plenty going on. All current school children participating receive a medal (designed by one of our pupils) and a goody bag.
Any class managing to complete the 26.2 mile marathon between them will receive a prize.
