A VILLAGE school has encouraged parents to step forward to help save their parent-teacher association.

Sunningwell CE Primary School near Abingdon has become the latest to warn that its PTA, which carries out valuable fundraising, could fold if new members do not materialise.

Parents were told in a newsletter on Monday: "Our PTA is in real danger of folding.

"If this happens this will have a direct impact on each child as the PTA fundraising has funded many school projects that otherwise we could not implement.

"We have recently purchased new Chromebooks to replace our very ancient laptops - without PTA funding we could not have upgraded, and children would have had very limited online access to learning materials.

"If you can help, please contact the school office."

In October the Oxford Mail reported that two schools, Henry Box in Witney and Abbey Woods Academy in Berinsfield, had issued similar pleas.
