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 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.

Y5 LEAVERS HOODIES
The PTA very generously purchased our gift to our lovely Year 5 leavers - personalised hoodies. The children were delighted with their gifts.
Grow £1 into something big!!
The latest PTA fundraiser aimed to get the children thinking about how they could take a £1 coin (provided to them by the PTA) and turn it into a larger amount of money.
The children worked very hard during the summer holidays and came up with some fantastic ideas which raised a whopping £677!!!
The photo below shows some of our pupils teaming up to sell homemade popcorn and works of art to passers by!
Congratulations to the prize winners! - more details on what they did as part of the challenge can be found in the latest PTA newsletter.
Summer Garden Tea Party - 7th July
Many thanks to the PTA for organising this event and to all who baked scones etc. Tea, scones and a recital by the school choir in our lovely school garden - a perfect way to spend an afternoon.
Bird Watch update!
The PTA kindly purchased an RSPB birdcam for the school garden a while back and we are delighted to share with you some of the lovely images it has captured of various birds enjoying our bird feeders!! So far we have seen House Sparrows, Blue Tits, Great Tits and a Green Finch!
