We are a group of enthusiastic parents/carers and teachers who want to support the school in providing an excellent education for our children. We are delighted to welcome new members and their fantastic ideas.
Our key aims
1. Helping the school to function at the heart of the community.
2. Raising funds for important projects in the school.
We completed our first long-term project to raise money for the refurbishment of the school library in 2013. We are now committed to improving the technical equipment and IT facilities in school.
The next big events!
Look out for our the Ladies’ Evening to be held in March 2015 and the Big Walk in July 2015 (sponsored)
Our latest fundraising campaign!
Whether it’s your weekly online grocery order, booking a holiday, downloading music, replacing your cooker, or buying presents, we are encouraging all school supporters to visit easyfundraising.org.uk before selecting your online retailer. By doing so, the retailer will donate a portion of your purchase price without actually amending the price for you (try it, it does work!). We can potentially raise thousands of pounds this way.
