The school has an active Parent Teacher Association (PTA), which organises activities for fundraising and just for fun.

How we spend the funds raised
The PTA use the funds raised to help provide the 'extras' that cannot be funded within the school budget but that make life at the school that much more enjoyable and enriching for our children. This year the PTA has spent over £9,000 on a variety of activities and resources, in order to help provide a diverse range of benefits for our children including:
- An additional class set of mini iPads
Books for the end of year awards
4 class sets of dictionaries
Sports kit for inter-school competitions (KS1 and KS2)
£700 worth of new books for the school library
Outdoor resources for Red & Yellow classes
None of this would have been possible without the work of the PTA committee, and the continued support of all those who help to organise, participate in and attend these events and activities. Thank you!
