The school has a very active Parent Teachers Association. Throughout the year they work tirelessly to raise funds for the school by organising school discos, colouring competitions, the Christmas Fair and much more.
From the money raised, the children of the school have had additional workshops to supplement the curriculum e.g. Animal Magic, activities and workshops for the arts week, IPADs, Playground Markings, they have contributed towards Christmas presents for all children, entertainment and food at the Christmas Party. The PTA also pay for all the subscriptions including the electronic reading scheme Bug Club, Spelling Shed and Phonics Play.
The PTA Committe is as follows:
Co-Chairs - Alex Banks (Mum of Emmy in Penguin Class) and Jodie Heath (Mum of Frankie in Zebra Class)
Vice Chair - Emily Starkie (Mum of William in Tiger Class)
Secretary - Lydia Ramsden (Mum of Rupert in Penguin Class)
Treasurer - Jo Higton (Mum of Etta in Zebra Class)
