What an amazing year it’s been! We hope you’ve enjoyed the lovely events that our school community has managed to put on! We’ve had cheese and wine nights, discos, raffles, the Spring Fair, the Komedia comedy night, the Summer Arts Festival, cake sales, and book giveaways. Thanks to you all for volunteering, coming to support and helping out at these events, since September the PTA have raised a record breaking…

For next year we are already working on:

    encourage a love of reading

    access, healthy snacks for all KS2 pupils and food packages for families in need.
  • Provide a whole school experience
  • Support the SEND team with much needed equipment
  • Raising funds for a ‘green screen’ across the top playground to intercept pollution from Elm Grove
  • Providing funds to renovate the Y5 classrooms

Want to get involved?! We are looking for a volunteer coordinator and a grant coordinator to join the team! We would also love to have lots more parents and carers to be part of the team, you don’t need to have a role, you can just join us to help come up with fund raising ideas as and when you can.
