The School has a very supportive PTFA, which organises events during the year and helps to provide the school with extra equipment and resources.
The PTFA committee meet approximately six times a year. They organise a wide variety of social events throughout the year such as Discos, Quiz night, Christmas Fair, School Ball, Summer Fete and Bingo. They also provide teas for after school sporting fixtures as well as serving refreshments at assemblies throughout the School year. The year finishes with a lunch that they organise for the Year 6 leavers and their parents which is a way of saying thank you to all those families who have supported the PFTA in their years at the School.
Their main aim is to raise additional funds for what they like to term as ‘the icing on the cake’ items for the children’s benefit within the School environment. In the past they have supplied the School with an Outdoor Gazebo and such things as play equipment, i pads, a cookery room and new Junior Library. Although their key function is to raise funds for the School the events provide a fantastic opportunity for parents to become involved in the social network that thrives within our School and ensures a wonderful community spirit, creating such a warm friendly atmosphere.The mutual co-operation between staff and parents means that the school and home act as a partnership, each supporting and encouraging the other.In this way, with your help and involvement, the maximum educational growth of your child will be ensured.
Please help the PTFA to keep the spirit alive by joining them for as many social functions as you are able and for those of you who have time to spare; they always welcome new members.
As parents, you may wish to help in school but not necessarily join the PTFA. The school welcomes parent volunteers and they play an important role in the success of the School, hearing children read and helping with library time etc. If you wish to help during the school day please contact the school office. Please understand DBS clearance must be established before you are able to start.
