What we do
The events organised by the PTA are many and varied. Each year we hold the very popular Christmas and Summer fairs which are the main fundraising events of the year. We also organise class cake sales, children’s discos and adult events. As well as providing fun and social occasions, these events help to raise funds to provide extra items of equipment for the school. Many years ago the school swimming pool was built and equipped by the PTA. More recently, purchases for the school have ranged from new computers for each classroom, a new heater for the swimming pool, digital cameras, playground artwork and a new Ark in the playground.
The 2017/2018 school year was yet another fantastic year for fundraising. Thanks to the hard work and dedication of the committee, parents, staff, and everyone who attends our PTA events, a massive £25,700 was raised! How has the money been spent so far? £20,000 for installation of new interactive whiteboards, £2,313.71 on books and several thousand pounds worth of learning and play resources.

We've got lots to look forward to in the summer term. Our next major events are the summer fair on Saturday 15th June and Happy's circus on Thursday 18th July. The class cake sales have finished for the year now. They raised a wonderful £1304.23 to be spent on items for the classes. The children along with their teacher get to choose which items they would like, usually games, toys and books.
