Our Parents and Friends
We are the PTFA (Parent, Teacher & Friends Association) - Supporting the school by raising extra funds for equipment and activities not supported by government funds & grants.
Our Committee members are all parents of children at the school but we welcome support for our events from all willing helpers.
We begin each school year discussing with the school what they would like us to help fund that year.
This year it was decided that the school wanted help raising money towards a new ‘trim-trail’ for the year 3 & 4 playground. Lots of discussion has taken place and the design has now been agreed and the first part of the construction will begin around Easter time.
Along with this we’ve also funded the costs of the Young Voices concert coach to Birmingham. Our aim for this school year is to raise £10,000.
So far this year we've raised £3,414!
Our Christmas fayre was a huge success and we managed to raise £2,154 and we want to take the opportunity to thank all those local businesses that gave us raffle prizes, you were so generous!
We raised £600 at our school disco back in November. Our new ‘photo-booth’ was a real hit! We aim to have it at our next disco too!
- At our quiz night back in October we raised £210!
- For giving us all your unwanted clothes, Rags2riches gave us £100!
- The Movie night back in December raised £50!
- We were also kindly given £300 from local engineering firm Renishaw!
