The PTA are a group of parents with children in the school ranging from Nursery through to Year 6.

 

We get together periodically to discuss events which we think would benefit the school and the children, as well as giving the children a fun activity, helping to raise money for the school.

 

We work closely with the school teachers who consults the children to find out what the children would enjoy, use and appreciate.

 

Our aim is to raise money for the school, predominantly so that it enhances the children’s experiences directly. We try to do this through fun activities that are open to all and we welcome all suggestions and help! With recent times we have not been able to fundraise as we have in the past so we are striving to find new and exciting ways to continue our efforts.

 

Towards the end of 2021 and early 2022, we have been pleased to purchase £1000 worth of non-fiction books for the school library. This was a specific request from the children.

 

Also as a result of the sponsored bounce last year, we have been able to purchase new playground equipment which includes, footballs, tennis nets, space hoppers, giant jenga, giant chess and more. These have been a massive hit with the children throughout the school and we have received some wonderful thank you letters.

 

It has been lovely to reward the children for their efforts and for them to take pride in knowing that it was their own efforts which raised the money to purchase this equipment.

 

Of course, all of this wouldn’t have been possible without the support from those of you at home! Without your donations, offers of help and fundraising suggestions, this wouldn’t be possible. We would like to thank you all for your continued support.

 

September 2022 is a new term and we would like to continue in our efforts to raise more money for the school.

So far the requests we have received are:

● Bike/Scooter racks so the children can cycle to and from school

● The repainting of the playground

● A new gymnasium for the playground

● Upgraded iPads for the ICT Suite
