PATCH is the Parents, Teachers and Children’s Association. Together we work hard to arrange and run various events including Children’s Discos, Summer and Christmas Fayres, Mothers’ and Fathers’ Day Shops along with a host of other events. All of the money raised at these events is used to benefit the children of Elson Junior School.

The committee is currently made up of: -

Mrs Tarah Puxty – Chairperson

Mrs Debbie Piper and Mrs Glenda Pratt – Vice Chairpersons

Ms Leilah Brewer – Secretary

Mrs Maria Peters - Treasurer

Miss Sherborne

Mrs Smith

If you have any questions or ideas then please contact any of us through the school office.

During the 2015/2016 academic year, PATCH raised funds that were used towards:

  • Replace Adventure Playground Equipment
  • A new Buddy Bench for the playground
  • Year 6's leaving event
  • Refreshments for school activities e.g. FRED, maths afternoon
  • Entry for 'J Rock'
  • Appreciation Station
  • An outside tap for the school garden
  • Transport to the Portsmouth Schools Music Festival
  • Provide additional extras such as christmas crackers and ice lollies at seasonal events for the children.

PATCH relies on your continued support. Even if you are not able to sit on the committee, your help with events will always be greatly appreciated.
