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.
Buy a Brick!!!!!
Please help us to raise funds for our new barn extension and be part of a permanent display of our supporters at the school once the extension is complete!
Our school has not been extended for a good number of years and as you all know we are extremely short on space, having used the hall as a classroom for the last 6 years!
The barn extension will commence at the end of May and will hopefully be finished mid August 2019.
If you would like to make a donation there are lots of ways to do this. You can download the form from the link below and return it (with cash) to school or feel free to call at school to collect/complete a form.
All donations are very gratefully received.
Beetle & Bingo Night
We have lots of activities planned for this half-term and we kicked it off with a Beetle & Bingo night on our first week back.
Thank you to all of you that came along and made the evening so enjoyable.
Christmas Fair 2018
Thank you to all those who joined us for the Christmas Fair on Friday 23rd November and to those who gave up their time to help or donated goods for the stalls!
It was a lovely evening and we raised a fantastic £800 in funds for our small school!!!
Without the support and commitment of our parents, staff and friends of the school, fundraisers like this wouldn't be possible and the money raised has a real impact on the things we can provide in school.
Please contact school if you are interested in finding out more about the PTA and how you can help.
Wigs & Wellies
The weather was on our side for our Wigs & Wellies walk on Tuesday 23rd October. We had lots of fun walking along the tea-lit path, over the fields and back to school for a well deserved drink and hot-dog.
Thank you to everyone that sponsored the children and their families.
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 at school on Friday 23rd November from 5:30 - 7:30pm for lots of Christmassy fun, crafts and refreshments. All are welcome to attend.
Wednesday 5th December sees our next movie night - send money in a named envelope if your child would like to attend and watch Arthur Christmas.
