In order to raise funds, we hold a variety of events during the school year ranging from a sponsored walk around the school playground, discos and other themed evenings, to our annual Summer Fayre.
These events are usually very well-supported, and over the years funds raised have enabled the school to purchase a variety of useful equipment, including: two new trim trails for KS1 and KS2 and new playground equipment.
Everyone is welcome to join the PFA, you do not have to attend every meeting but if you can help out in small ways throughout the year this is appreciated. We also operate a class representative system where each class has 2 representatives who liaise with the committee to help sell tickets, man stalls and provide help where required.
We are always keen to welcome new members and are now inviting parents to become class reps. This new role will involve getting involved in some ideas for future fundraising, sharing ideas with other class reps and feeding back to your own class of parents. If this is something you would be interested in getting involved in please leave your name with the school office.
The PFA organised a child’s entertainer, ‘Mr Banana Head’, to come and perform a magic show for the children in Early Years and Key Stage One. The children had a fantastic time meeting Mr Banana Head and his pet monkey Mango, who was very naughty! They enjoyed helping with some of the tricks and there was a lot of laughter coming from the hall!
The parents were able to gather together in the dining room for a hot drink, a biscuit and a chat whilst their children were entertained. Thank you to all of the volunteers who made this event possible.
