The PTA plays a very important role in the school in developing relationships between staff and parents, engaging in activities which support the school and advance the education of the pupils by providing, or assisting to provide, facilities for the school, which are not funded by the state. This means that fund raising plays a large part in Friends activities. We have had various events in the past, including Wine & Wisdom evenings, School Proms, a Caribbean Night, School Fetes, Duck Races, Balloon Races, Sponsored Bounce and Children’s Discos.

The PTA meet to discuss future events at least once a term and always welcome new faces. Without the support of parents, the Friends events would not be successful. We are therefore very grateful to all parents who give their voluntary help and support. Minutes from the PTA meetings are posted for you to view below.

Many thanks for all your support as always.
