Parent Fundraising Group

Who are we?

We are a registered charity run by Volunteers including parents, carers, and grandparents.

Chair – Amanda Jex (2023/24 -Year 2 Mum)

Secretary – Stephanie Lister (2023/24- Year 1 Mum)

Treasurer – Helen Lamoon (2023/24- Year 2 Mum)

We also have a great committee with members who all work to help to organise and run events. We are a friendly bunch who are always happy to welcome anyone.

We all volunteer for the same reason – the Children! We want to give them fantastic experiences and lovely things to remember about school. We also want to raise money to support the school in supplying essential things for the children.

What do we do?

Here are some previous events we have put together:

• End of Term sweet treat stalls

• Movie Nights

• School Disco

• Competitions

• Dress Down days

• Christmas Fayre

• Pop up Shops for Mothers and Father’s day.

• Christmas and Easter activities.

Why do we do it?

Here are some of the many things the PTA has funded:

• School reading books

• EYFS new starter book bags

• Subsidised trips

• Arranging Santa visits

• Pantomime

We are working hard to raise funds for playground updates and exciting projects. Your support at events makes it possible. Let’s create a better play experience for our children together!
