PTA Film Night - The Greatest Showman :)
Can we just say on behalf of the PTA, we’d like to say a big thank you to everybody who took part in attending the movie night on Wednesday 13th March 2019. It was a huge success and raised over £130. The children enjoyed the chance to spend time with their friends in a cinema environment and loved singing and dancing through the movie.
Look out for our next one :)
Christmas Fayre - 14th December 2018
The next event we will be taking part in is the ‘Christmas Fayre’ on 14th December 2018. We are seeking raffle prizes so if you know anybody who would like to donate a prize (employers, friends, family etc) we would be very grateful. A list will be published showing who has contributed to the raffle so a free advertisement too J
Thank you all for your continued support...

We managed to raise £301.
Which will go towards items at school to contribute towards your child's learning.
Look out for future events and meetings
Do you have any unwanted gifts you have no idea what to do with? Want to make space for more gifts at Christmas?
The PTA will gladly take them off your hands. Just drop them to the office or PTA member & we will make good use of them.
Also look out for our refreshments stall at the Christmas Fayre & treat yourself to a nice warm drink with a scrummy treat.
A while ago we purchased 6 Kobo readers for guided reading sessions in school. The school council had a meeting to discuss what books they would like purchased for the readers. We have now purchased the books & they have been loaded on to each reader. Hopefully the children will enjoy using this new piece of technology & will get lots of benefit from them.
