The aim of the Parents and Friends Association (P.F.A) is to ensure that our children get the very best of opportunities.
Water Bottle Tops
The PFA have purchased a supply of water bottle tops as we’ve found these break more often than the bottles, if you’d like some just ask Rosie Thurlby they are 50p each.
Friday 15th December - 17.30 - 19.00
Tickets for this will be going on sale shortly and will be available from the school office. The school hall has a maximum capacity of 120 and so be sure to get your tickets early. Tickets are priced at £2 for adults, 50p for children and a family ticket for two adults and three children can be purchased for £5.
Grand Christmas Raffle
There will be great prizes again this year, with 1st prize £50 cash. Among other prizes there will be a traditional Christmas Hamper, Gym Pass, Soft Play Pass. Books of tickets will be sent home in the school bags soon, please help us sell as many as possible by selling to your friends, family and work colleagues. Please ask in the office if you need more. Tickets will also be available at the Christmas play performances.
Santa Fun Run and Walk
Sunday 3rd December at 11am
Following the great day we had last year we are very keen to do this again, we would love to see more families joining us this year and help raise money for the school (last year sponsorships raised £904 for the PFA). The entry fees are £14 adult & £7 Child. The PFA will fund half the entry fee for all those participating and raising sponsorship money for us. We will be in the playground soon looking to sign up runners and sponsors, look out for us in our Santa suits.
You don’t have to run, walking is acceptable and the distance is 5k, children are able to participate with parents.
January 2018 (T.B.A)
Just like the Bag2School we used in the previous years, this organisation collects clothes, shoes, hat, ties, bags and belts paying per kilo we donate. We would ask you to start thinking about anything you’d like to donate. We thought this would be a good New Year clear out opportunity, last year your donated clothes helped to raise nearly £200. More details will follow soon.
This year thanks to your support we raised an amazing £2622, nearly £300 more than last year. This and a healthy account balance from last year allowed us to donate back to our school over £4600 in 2016/2017.
We have contributed toward the cost of:

Social night out
Thank you to everyone who supported these events.
The PFA has provided some fun events for everyone to join in and in the process we have raised some useful funds.
Things we have paid for include: trips to the Christmas pantomime for the whole-school; The Life Education Bus; indoor games for wet playtimes; outdoor play equipment for playtimes and VR headsets with phones for virtual fieldtrips.
The boat and crocodile on the playground was purchased by the P.F.A a number of years ago. This fantastic piece of playground equipment has brought a lot of enjoyment to the children and has helped to enhance their imagination at playtime. The P.F.A contributed £2000 towards this from the proceeds of the Summer Fair and other events.
