We have a very active PTA, which helps to organise events for both fundraising and socialising, e.g. Christmas Fair, Summer Fete, quizzes, etc.
Meetings to organise the programmes of events are held regularly. An amazing sum of money is raised annually by the PTA, making an immense difference to our school. For example, this has enabled us to purchase a stage for drama productions and new books for the library, etc.
Parents and Helpers
The active support of parents is welcomed and encouraged; the school benefits from this in a number of ways. All staff members welcome parents into the school as helpers and sharers of expertise – from helping with reading to running a club.
The School and the Community
The children thoroughly enjoy events where members of the community join us. Examples include: social functions, e.g. school and community BBQ, and inviting older residents to school lunch and everyone to Open Afternoons, e.g. the launch of this website. They also value the input of members of the community to enhance the curriculum, e.g. coming in to talk of life experiences, becoming resident artists, etc. In addition, they relish being invited to share and take part in community events, e.g. the Church’s flower festivals and the village history weekend.
