Parent and Friends Association (PFA)

As a school, we warmly encourage a family environment, as we know children learn best when there are strong relationships between home and school. The PFA meet regularly at school to discuss ideas and activities that they can organise for the children, parents and staff. They provide support to the school in many ways and have worked hard to ensure the children have opportunities and extra benefits such as:

  • New books 
  • Outside play equipment and Early Years resources
  • Trips to the pantomime
  • Leavers’ Hoodies

The PFA organise fundraising and social events including summer, Easter and Christmas fairs, auctions, barbecues, breakfasts and discos. In 2018 children and staff enjoyed a Christmas buffet lunch prepared by the PFA; the children also made nature angels with their members for display at St Mary’s Church as part of the ‘Angel Host Festival’.

The PFA are about to hold an auction at the village Sports and Social Club of items which have been donated by members of the school and wider community, including local businesses. Several further events over the Christmas period are planned to take place.

New members are always very welcome to join the next meeting for a friendly and worthwhile get together!
