The Parent, Teacher and Friends Association is an integral part of the school community. Our current committee is made up of parent volunteers. However, each event relies on the additional help and support of other parents and staff along with local businesses and other member of the community.
We are primarily a fundraising group and raise money throughout the year at a number of events. Firm favourites are the Summer Fair, End of Year Disco and the Easter Bingo. We regularly collect old clothing to sell to bags2school. We also raise money through Easy Fundraising. Members of the PTFA help at sports day and on school trips.
The support for our fundraising events has enabled us to fund specialist inputs such as circus and skipping workshops, travel costs for school trips, maths resources, a trip to the pantomime and forest schools equipment. We have also been able to buy seven new computers which fulfills our commitment to enhancing the learning experience of all the children within the school.
Our work would not be possible without the support of the school community and we thank you for that!
I look forward to seeing you at our fundraising events an if you feel able to give up a little time to help you will be made very welcome.
