Who we are and what we do
To those parents new to the school or perhaps not so new, but curious about what the PTA organisation is all about, we are the Parent Teacher Association. Our aim is to bring together the school community, organising special events for both children and parents alike, while raising valuable funds. In the current economic climate, these funds are especially welcome to enhance the experience of our children at the school. In the academic year 2016/17 we managed to raise over £10,000 which was spent on a wide range of additional resources such as recorder lessons, tennis lessons, maths resources, IT learning aids and improvements to the school’s outdoor learning spaces. With your help, we hope to make the year ahead a similar success in terms of raising valuable funds for the school but also laying on some enjoyable events in the process.
In recent years, the PTA has organised a wide variety of fundraising events such as cake sales, quiz nights and the all-important summer fete, as well as fundraising initiatives like class tea towels, Christmas raffles and termly colouring competitions. To find out what events are coming up, please keep an eye on the school online calendar which is regularly updated, the school monthly newsletter and ParentMail.

Find out more
The best way to find out more about what the PTA is up to is to come along to our meeting on Wednesday 4th October at 7:30pm in the school hall. Everyone is welcome, the more the merrier. To entice you further (as if a wild Wednesday night in the school hall wasn’t enough), cheese and crackers are provided and most people bring a drink or two for what is a relaxed and sociable evening discussing events and fundraising initiatives for the year ahead – new ideas and enthusiasm actively encouraged but not essential.
