The PFA would like to thank you all for your support at the Christmas Fair this year, from supplying donations to assistance on the day with various stalls and KS2 games. Everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves and getting into the festive spirit. We managed to raise a massive £1,403 for the school, so thank you again!

Following the PFA questionnaire that was issued in October, we have reviewed the results and taken your feedback on board. Next year we will be looking to host two new exciting events;  a film night initially for KS2 (and if successful we will run one for KS1 later in the year) on Friday 2nd February and also a family friendly quiz on Friday 23rd March. So, please save the dates and we will provide more information in the New Year! We will also continue to put on the discos for both KS1 and KS2 in both May and November next year.
