Dear Parents, Carers, Teachers and Governors of our school.

Welcome back from your PTA team.  This is our first newsletter this academic year - whilst we all face challenges, we are still keen to keep the community spirit and fundraising alive.

We would like to take this opportunity to welcome our new children and parents and we look forward to eventually meeting you all.

Let us introduce ourselves: Chair – Angela Spencer-Smith/ Emily Hodgkins,  Secretaries Liz Horwood/ Emma MacDonald, Treasurer: Vacant. 

As you can see we have a vacancy for treasurer and would like to say a huge thank you to Brad West for the last year in this role.  Also, to Becky Jouanides, who is stepping down as a long serving year rep.

If you would like to apply for the treasurer role, then please drop a note to one of the team, you can do this via the school post box should you not see us at pick up or drop off.

Year reps: Yr R Rep – Ruth Parnell, Yr 1 Rep – Nikki Lamb, Yr 2 Rep – Becca Willow, Yr 3 Rep Heather York & Kerry Baldey, Yr 4 Rep – Nick Taylor, Yr 5 Rep – Libby Kirk and Yr 6 Rep – Kelly Horne.

Want to get involved? As a PTA we are always looking for helpers, so if you have ideas and would like to get involved, please let one of the team know.

Class parent Whatsapp/messenger groups.  These groups are really useful to share information about events, chat about homework, ask questions etc. Speak to your year rep if you would like to be added to your year group chat.  It’s also a nice way to get to know the other parents/carers in your year, as we don’t always get to see each other on the school run.

PTA Projects during lockdown.  Council grant of £750 received for the library renovations and the PTA also added additional funds towards this. We hope you have enjoyed the pictures of this in Mrs Houston’s latest newsletter and that the children have enjoyed being able to bring home some new books to read.  Oak class canopied learning area.  This could not have come at a more opportune time and is proving a great addition to the class.  Additionally, we liaised with Mrs Houston to provide support where needed in the school community during the initial few months of the lockdown.  VE day collage, thank you to all those that sent in their lovely pictures and made it onto the final collage, this is currently being displayed in the school hall. 

Fundraising aims: Following on from our discussions with Mrs Houston we have decided to focus our fundraising on two new projects:

  1. Raising £500 to resource the new practical room with cooking equipment.
  2. Raising £8,000 to replace the adventure trail as part of our playground renovations.
