As I continue in my role of Chair,  I would like to thank all of the PTFA committee members, parents and staff, for their enthusiasm and hard work throughout the years.

I would also like to thank those who, although not officially on the committee, give so much of their time and energy to assist at PTFA events. Although the PTFA has several purposes, we do need to raise the funds which allow us to support the school and our aim is to do this in ways which include as many children and their families as possible. The PTFA needs the support of all parents, whether as members of the committee, occasional helpers or as supporters of our events.

The PTFA aims to give donations to all aspects of school life and we are delighted to have held many activities throughout the school years including an evening at Kidsworld, the Elf Shelf, discos, film nights and summer fete which was a huge success!

Through these events if has been possible to donate to the school over £4,000 to assist the school in furnishing the year 5 building and to enable them to upgrade the ICT systems.

This year our summer fete will be held on 30th June 2018 and we look forward to seeing you there! If you run a business, craft or otherwise or know someone who does and would like to donate a raffle prize we would be most grateful and so please contact us.

Alternatively, if you or the business holder would like to hold a stall at our fete then please contact the school office or the PTFA direct on [email protected] and we will be happy to provide you with the relevant form and details and to answer any other queries you may have.

Can I just finally say, no matter what we do, our efforts are for our children to ensure that school life is not only about education but fun as well which we hope we convey.

If you have any events that you would like us to hold please suggest these to us using our email address and these will be put forward.    Similarly if any of you have any skills that you think you may be able to offer please let us know!
