Our latest big event was the Curry and Quiz night held on Friday 5th February which raised around £550.
Watch this space for future events
It is important to recognise however that every parent is a part of our PTA in one way or another. From the smallest of contributions be it time or financial it all plays a huge part in our happy school. We are keen to help and support our children’s school, learning and development and encourage as many parents to join us where possible. Please feel free to come and find us in the school playground or join us when you can with this years PTA meetings and events.
Our Aim: The results from last years parent questionnaire indicated that parents wanted PTA funds to go towards 'an outside learning space'. We are therefore supporting and funding our children’s regular annual events such as Christmas presents, School Discos, Easter eggs and Yr6 leavers’ presents.
When do we meet? We try and hold a meeting during every half term and we try and rotate meetings between day time and evening meetings to try and include all working and non-working Mums and Dads.
We are always interested in new ideas for fundraising and welcome all parents to help plan our next “big thing”, come and join us...a warm welcome awaits!
It is a pleasure to be involved with a super group of children and parents. We hold many social events throughout the year which in the past have included selling pumpkins for Halloween, firework displays, Christmas Fayres, Discos, currys and quizzes.
We are lucky to have very supportive staff and parents which makes it a fun and very worthwhile cause to volunteer for. With education funding being continually squeezed we find more and more the need to keep the coffers topped up.
