Parent Association

The Parents’ Association was started over 60 years ago to provide support for the school, organise events and enable parents to meet each other informally. These aims are ongoing and currently the Association organises both fundraising and social events for the benefit of pupils and parents.

Events have included a Christmas Fayre, Summer Fayre and Barbecue, ‘As New’ uniform sales, discos for the children, quiz evenings and an Autumn/Summer Ball. The main fund raising events are the Christmas and Summer Fayres and the Association aims to raise £3000 per annum, which is used to support the school in a variety of ways such as the purchase of classroom, ICT and sports equipment, outdoor benches and tables, books for the library, break-time toys.

The PA has also helped the school with major projects including the resurfacing of the tennis courts with an all weather surface, the purchase of interactive white boards and the school mini bus. The PA is run by a committee, which meets two or three times each term, and is made up entirely of parents of children in Nursery through to Year 6. School takes a very keen interest in the Association and staff help and support events organised.

The Committee itself is very sociable and offers an ideal opportunity to parents from all parts of the school to meet each other. The work is very rewarding and the help the PA provides enhances the happy and well-motivated environment of the school.
