PTA News

The PTA AGM takes place next Thursday, 9th February at 6pm in the school hall, followed by a drink in the Royal Oak afterwards for those who wish!

All parents and carers are members of the PTA and we would love to see you there and hear your views on fundraising ideas and what we could spend our funds on.

Our purpose is to raise funds to support the enrichment of the curriculum for our children and to support the school with the purchase of resources in these difficult times of budget cuts, as well as providing fun, social events for all to enjoy!

We are looking for people to join our committee and also for general support with planning and running events. Many hands make light work! The more people that get involved, the less each individual needs to do. Being such a small school with a small number of families, we really rely on everyone pitching in and doing their bit to help our events run successfully and enable us to raise funds to pay for things such as Christmas presents, library books and coaches for trips.

Please come along to the AGM to find out more and share your ideas, we look forward to seeing you.


Infant PE kits

Infant PE days are Thursday and Friday, Please can you ensure that your child has pumps in their PE kit for indoor PE sessions aswell as trainers for outdoor sessions.


How to contact teachers

If you need to get in touch with your child’s teacher, please get in touch with Hannah in the office to forward on any emails or organise a convenient time for the teacher to phone you back. The teachers are also more than happy for you to catch them at the beginning or end of the day.
