Where the money goes...
Over the past few years, the funds raised by the PTA have subsidised school trips, funded author visits, the school's 75th Anniversary Arboretum, visits from the Life Bus, the trim trail on the field, and helped to build an outdoor classroom. One major funding project was the purchase of educational electronic tablets for the whole school to use. Some projects this year include improving our wildlife pond and garden so the children can enjoy it all year round, and creating mini-libraries in each classroom with age-specific reading books.
Ways you can help raise funds
There are many ways you can help to raise funds, such as supporting the regular PTA events such as the children's disco, the Summer and Christmas Fairs, the regular class cake sales, and our occasional special events such as the Magic Show, Quiz Night, and our visit from the circus.
There are also additional ways that you can help...
Why not sign up for our 100 Club? For as little as £12 per year to take part, we have total prizes worth £725 to be won over the year. It is a great way to support the school and be in with a chance to cash in!
