Investing in the School
Money Raised from PTA fundraisers has helped the school meet its larger and longer term goals, details of which can be found below.
The PTA continues to provide new resources and equipment of a smaller scale, such as arts and crafts materials, an annual Christmas play for all children, maths and literacy funding and many others.
Previous PTA funded projects have included:
New Furniture in EYFS classrooms
The Nest-break out space and curriculum kitchen
Clevertouch in all classrooms
Woodland Learning Area
Year 2 Outdoor area
This year we will be raising funds for educational experiences such as The Pied Piper Christmas Performance, and an author's visit during Book Week and the redevelopment of the early years outdoor area to create a much-needed improved safe and inviting learning space which the children love to use.
