Our school benefits enormously from the Parents and Teachers Association. You are automatically a member and PTA members are actively involved in all aspects of school life and do a magnificent job in raising funds for the benefit of our children (for example: whole school visit to a Pantomime, animal visits to the school, class presents at Christmas) through a programme of enjoyable community events such as our Summer Fair. There is an annual AGM and monthly meetings which are advertised on newsletters and our website. Please feel free to come along, you will be warmly welcomed.
