Who are we?

 

We are a group of parents and carers with children at the school who try to support the school in lots of different ways. Like you, everyone involved leads busy lives, many of the group work or have younger children to look after but each finds a way to be involved.

 

What do we do?

 

It's a common misconception that all we do is fund raise for the school!

 

Although we do (with our major annual event being the fantastic summer fair!) we do lots of other things such as providing extra help at events throughout the year such as sports days and school discos.

 

We also arrange fun evenings and days for the children like the bingo evening and the football morning, and events for the adults too, such as the Quiz and the Ladies Night.

 

We sell the 2nd hand school uniform and also act as a sounding board for the staff when they need a parent's view on ideas for what's going on at school.

 

Can anyone help?

 

Yes, yes and yes please!

 

Anyone can help! You might not be able to attend our regular meetings, but that's fine. If you are able to help at an event such as the Summer Fair or by doing something for us at home, that's great and would be most appreciated. Don't be put off thinking you'll get 'lumbered' with doing anything big; we have a great group of people involved and you wouldn't be expected to do anything huge!

 

Ideas

 

We welcome all ideas for events, and also for what to spend money on. As you'd expect, we take our lead from the school staff. But as we try to make sure that as many children as possible benefit from the funds raised, we would welcome your suggestions.
