It's that time of year again...does the thought of sewing or ironing on name labels fill you with dread? Why not try quick and easy name stamp company Stamptastic (and earn up to 30% cashback for the PTA in the process!):
What the PTA do.....
The PTA aims to raise funds to help make the school's budget go further, improve our children's educational opportunities, to provide a feedback to the school and hopefully to add something to the spirit of the community.
Who are the PTA.....
You may not know it but as a parent of a child at the school you are already a member of the PTA, how much you chose to be involved is up to you. Obviously the more people who are involved the better we can be at assisting the school, the children, their parents and the community.
What the PTA has achieved....
It is a reality that school budgets are continuously under pressure and never more so than at our school and your support as a parent and PTA member to the fund raising efforts have undoubtedly had a positive impact on all of our children's educational experiences.
In 2011 / 2012 we donated £27,000 to the school. In 2012 / 2013 we donated £16,490 and 2013 / 2014 saw £34,000 donated to the school, including £28,000 to support refurbishment of the ICT suite, and £5,000 to make improvements to the School Library, including graphic novels, dual language books and other resources designed to encourage a love of reading in the children.
In 2014 / 2015, we donated £13,000 to the school to fund iPads and associated technology for use in classes across the school, plus in excess of £10,000 for other projects.

We are pleased to announce that we have now reached the fundraising target of £5,000 to purchase books to refresh and update our School Library - Look out for our new fundraising target coming soon!
Village Day in 2016 raised over £14,250 for the school and the money is still coming in! Thank you everyone for your support, either financially or with your time. Next year's Village Day is on Sat 17th June 2016.
