Team Harpur is the school's parent and teacher association (PTA). Every parent is automatically a member of the Team Harpur, which is an umbrella organisation of parents and friends of the school, who work together to support it. This can be through fun events, fundraising, welcoming new parents to the school and occasionally, consultation meetings.

How does Team Harpur help the school?
In numerous ways! Fund-raising for important things such as:
- contributing each year towards the transport costs for school trips;
- paying for the school's text/email facility known as 'Teachers2Parents';
- buying each child a present for the Christmas parties;
- Easter egg hunts;
- paying for school discos;
- subsidising visitors fees (e.g. 'The Romans, The Victorians' and many more);
- enriching the curriculum and supporting children's learning;
- buying resources needed for the school.
Having a formal PTA also provides us with indemnity insurance for events that are run by Team Harpur.
