Welcome to Balgowan Primary School
We recently had a parent forum on the Curriculum changes, and how the different subjects will be affected. Each subject’s presentation is available for download…
Hello and a big welcome from the PTA to all parents, especially parents new to the school. Now that you’ve settled in, we thought it would be a good time to introduce ourselves and explain how you can enjoy being a part of Balgowan PTA.
The PTA is an informal collection of parents and teachers who work together to raise funds for the school. As a parent (or carer) then you’re already part of the PTA. As well as being fun, the PTA serves an important role as a hub in our community, helping parents get to know each other better with different events.

We will be holding open mornings to allow prospective families to visit and tour the school in the next month. The open mornings will be held on the following dates: Thursday October 9, Wednesday October 22, Wednesday November 12 and Friday November 21. Please phone the school on 020 8658 6374 or email to book an appointment
UPDATE: These positions have been filled!
From September the PTA Chair and Vice Chair are stepping down and there cannot be a PTA unless these positions are filled, which would be a real shame for the school. Jo Shepheard Matthews is remaining as Secretary and will be on hand to help the new chair learn the ropes, as will many other current members of the committee, and the outgoing chair.
You won’t be alone and it can be good fun!
It can be one, two, three people so if you and a group of friends think you can take over this role, please let us know! Use the contact form on the PTA page or get in touch with the school.
