Our school has a very active and committed P.T.A. We help to strengthen the vital relationship between parents and the school, encourage support for the school in the local community and raise funds to provide extra equipment.
Our recent fund raising has helped to purchase a new stage for the hall, provide more books for the library, buy music and sports equipment and build an outdoor play trail. In 2014 we raised over £6,000 for the school. This money built the Envirozone, an outdoor learning area with a covered sail and natural planting, a willow archway and bug hotels for the children to explore. The Envirozone helps take lessons outside, enabling the children to learn more about nature, the environment and how this changes throughout the seasons. We also purchased a new, larger noticeboard located outside the Reception classroom.
We hold events throughout the year that the children really enjoy – discos, film nights and the summer fair, along with social events for parents – race nights, a pamper evening and a bingo night. These events build upon the sense of community within school, help raise money and are a lot of fun!
As a parent you are very welcome to come along and join us at the P.T.A. meetings. You can put forward ideas for new fund raising schemes or just offer support where and when you can at the events we run.
