Working in partnership with parents is a priority for us. Children love to see their parents involved in school life so please come and get involved in whatever way you can.


PTFA's are invaluable as their role is to support the school  to provide experiences and opportunities  for all children. Traditionally PTA's run fayres, discos, beetle drives, and a range of other fundraising activities which may also include Barn dances, Salsa evenings and quiz nights for adults.


The PTFA is not a forum for dealing with school issues and raising concerns.  



The school opened in September 2015 and by mid October 2015 a PTFA had been established.

We have a section in the school weekly newsletter which will keep all parents up to date with what we have done and what we are planning to do.

We ave recently raised money to establish a trim trail for the children . The pupils in  Y3/4/5 designed the trim trail and had a fantastic time doing so. It is a vaulable and much loved addition to our school!!


Thanks to the parents who are supporting our fundraising events smiley


The Spring Fling!
