Parents have been extremely supportive of our fundraising efforts over the years and have raised thousands of pounds for school for which we are very grateful.
Keep an eye out for our newsletters for information about our fundraising events and also how we spend the money you so kindly raise. We currently have a display board in the main entrance. See further below for previous newsletters and meeting minutes.
If you have any fundraising ideas or if you would like to help with any of the planned events, please do not hesitate to speak to a member of the PTA.
Thank you as always for your support with our fundraising efforts.
Thank you PTA!
Reception & Year 1 pupils enjoyed an amazing afternoon to tie in with their topic work on Owls....a visit from Wise Owl Bird of Prey Rescue Centre who are based at Scissett!!
We saw a collection of beautiful owls, plus a Harrier Hawk and whilst the children impressed Wayne greatly with their knowledge of owls, we all learned something new.
Each child also had the opportunity to hold Orville, a little owl - what an experience!
Thank you also to the Wise Owl Bird Rescue - we can't wait to have you back!
Upcoming PTA events
Join us on Monday 8th October at 3:30pm in school when we will be holding our annual general meeting. All welcome to attend!
We are always on the look out for event helpers and PTA members so please get in touch if you can spare any time or would just like to know more about the many ways you can help.
School budgets are being reduced each year and it is becoming more and more difficult to replace the resources in school such as books and IT equipment when they start to deteriorate or break. The success of the PTA is vital to provide these resources along with additional opportunities for our children such as trips and visitors.
Please take a look at the latest newsletter below to see an overview of the funds raised last year and what this money was spent on for the benefit of all our pupils.
Wigs n Wellies!
2018 sees the revival of this very enjoyable fundraiser....a fancy dress/accessorised (wigs!) sponsored local walk, complete with sturdy footwear (wellies!).
We will leave school at 6:30pm on Tuesday 23rd October and return a short walk later to school where you can purchase a warm supper.
Watch out for your sponsor form which will be sent home in book bags nearer the time.
Join us at school on Friday 23rd November from 5:30 - 7:30pm for lots of Christmassy fun, crafts and refreshments. All are welcome to attend.
