Member benefits

PTA UK works to engage more parents in more schools in more ways, doing more good for the education of children. We help PTAs on the ground and support parent participation in schools and education by engaging directly with parents to inform them about things that matter and giving them a voice in education.

Our member benefits provide support to help you be the most successful PTA you can be, regardless of school and size. With nearly 14,000 members you can be a part of the largest community of parent associations in the UK. See the full member benefits infographic.
