We always welcome new faces... here's How To Get Involved!

 

Meetings:

All parents are very welcome to attend the PTA meetings. You can come to one, all, any you like and you can be as involved as you can / wish to be. There is no pressure. Meetings generally last an hour and are held in school with the Headmaster - just turn up and ring the bell!. If you are interested in attending, please just come along !  We're a friendly bunch and we'd appreciate the extra support!

 

*We will adapt the way we meet in line with the most recent Covid restrictions so please keep an eye out on Dojo for the latest*

 

Volunteering:

If you can't make the meetings but would like to be involved, we are always looking for help at our events - discos, secret shops, fairs etc. We need lots of support to run these events and so an hour of volunteering does make all the difference. 

 

Attending events:

Of course our fundraising events are worthless unless you come along and support them! The proceeds go straight back to school and the children really love it too.

 

Second Hand Uniform Shop:

We've had huge success with our online and 'pop-up' Second Hand Uniform Shops. There are hundreds of high quality items of uniform for sale. All proceeds of the shop go directly back to school. 

 

The Giving Machine:

 

You can support the PTA's fundraising target by generating free donations for us every time you shop online via TheGivingMachine. Sign up, install the app on your mobile device or set the 'shop and give' reminder on your desktop and get started now. It doesn't cost you anything, but raises vital funds for our school. Please do tell your friends and family how they can help us at no extra cost too
