The Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is very active and organises a number of events throughout the school year. The main aim of these events is to raise funds for the benefit of the children but they are also a valuable opportunity for staff, parents and children to meet together and have a good time and reinforce our sense of being a close, caring and friendly community.
Some events such as Quiz Nights are aimed at the parents. Others such as the Discos and after school Arts and Crafts are for the children.
The PTA is run totally by volunteers for the benefit of the children so please support them by attending events, sending in requested items or volunteering to help run an event.
The money raised by the PTA is crucial to provide extra experiences and equipment and to help us undertake projects which would otherwise be hard or impossible to fund. PTA funding made it possible to build our ICT suite, create new play areas, refurbish our cookery room and to continue to provide treats such as a magician for the Early Years and an outdoor adventure day for Year 6.- plus much more!
Key Events run by the PTA are -The Christmas Bazaar and Summer Fayre, The Easter Fayre, running competitions and quiz evenings, hosting pamper and shopping evenings, art and craft afternoons, discos…. And much more!
