The Latest News from the PTA

Posted on February 03 2017

Here’s a little update to keep you informed with what’s been going on behind the discos, fairs, raffles and tombolas!

2015/16 proved a fantastic year for the PTA and funds raised were unprecedented.

Autumn term 2016, took off from where we left and our New Year accounts show that we raised approximately £2000! We are hoping to continue this going into 2017.

Movie Night…what can I say? I’m not sure if it was Haribo induced or the fact that it was such a great night but it was certainly a fantastic way to kick the term off! It was a great success and all of the children were so well behaved, that it was an absolute pleasure to provide a fun night for them…and parents. Due to the success and hugely positive feedback, it may be set to become a termly event.

Operation New Playground: is well underway due to funds raised through the various PTA events.  We have been able to contribute a huge £9000 towards the new playground structure/re-build in the rear playground. This has been in the planning for some time, so to be able to turn it into a reality is, for me, such a fantastic achievement. On Saturday 4 February, some of the parents are forming a “work party” to help dismantle the existing structure and ready the area for Playdale to start work in the coming weeks. If you have any free time on Saturday, please come on down and lend a hand. If you need tempting….there will be a bacon sandwich and hot drinks in return for your efforts!! 

Our next event is the Easter Disco; in fact, I’ve only today been confirming the disco booking. We are meeting on Monday 27 February to plan for the disco, keep an eye out for details and come along.

Despite it being February…planning for our Summer BBQ is already going on. There are some really exciting developments, its quickly shaping up to be a great way to end the year. If anyone is getting rid of gazebos, please donate them to us as ours have sadly come to the end of their life and no amount of Mr Pawsons’ tape can resurrect them!

We are hoping to hold another couple of events, but they are yet to be confirmed.

It goes without saying, that none of this would be possible without your support in attending our events, buying raffle tickets and donating raffle/tombola gifts etc – for which we are always very grateful.

Also, a lot of what we do wouldn’t be possible without the help of our PTA who all volunteer their time and effort. We are always looking for more helpers and volunteers; any help, in any capacity is always welcomed and if you would like to become involved, please speak to one of us in the playground, come along to a meeting or get in touch via our Facebook page:   You can also keep updated with what we’re up to on there.

Our next meeting is scheduled for 27th Feb in the school hall at 7pm – please come along.

Looking forward to seeing you at our next event!!

Please remember, if you fancy getting involved - in any capacity, you’re always welcome. If not you can always check out our Face book page;

Thanks again for your ongoing support.

Jessica – PTA Chair
