You will notice that some TA’s are working across two classes and will work part-time in both


Several families are parking on School Lane and other families have pointed out that this narrows the road to a single lane and then delays everyone getting past. The Village Hall have asked us not to park on the grass adjacent to the hall. Parking is always difficult around schools at the end of the school day so please help each other do the safest for everyone.

Water Bottles

This September we will be replacing the water bottle top for each child, rather than the whole bottle. We felt it was important to save plastic waste wherever we could. Please make sure your child’s water bottle is left in school at the end of term and we will replace the lid ready for September.

Thank you from the PTA

Thank you so much to all of you who came and supported the Summer Fayre 2018. We have received some great feedback from people who loved the Wild West theme and in particular the Bucking Bronco, which was a big hit with the children! The BBQ was a big success and our team working on the BBQs and in the kitchen produced some great cowboy grub for us all to enjoy – a special thanks to them!

A great big THANK YOU to all of you who donated items, baked cakes or gave us your time to set up and run the event, we really couldn’t do it without you! We raised approx. £2,700 which is a great achievement, and will in part go towards new furniture for the ‘Snuggles’ area in the playground. We also hope to be able to continue to help fund school trips into the new school year by subsidising transport costs.

Your PTA still needs your help and desperately needs additional team members so please look out for the date of the AGM in September and think about coming along and lending a hand. All new ideas and help greatly appreciated, plus we’re a friendly bunch – and there will be wine and nibbles too! We hope to see you there.

Thanks once again, from your PTA Team.

PTA End of Term Parties and Disco

On Wednesday 11th July there will be a disco and barbecue for children in Classes 3, 4, 5 and 6.  This starts at 6.30 p.m. and finishes at 8.00 p.m.  Tickets cost £3.00 per child.  Tickets can be purchased on the PTA Events website  or from the school office.

On Thursday 19th July there will be a Summer Picnic for Classes R, 1 and 2.  This will be during school time and so the children can wear their own clothes to school on this day. Please ensure that footwear is appropriate for playtimes and safe movement around school.  The cost is £1.00 per child. Please complete the attached slip and return to your child’s class teacher by Monday 16th July.

Summer Fayre – Thank you!

Thank you for all your support for our Summer Fayre on Saturday.

There is so many ways that families help out – from fantastic donations, running stalls, setting up, clearing up and, of course, spending money!  Thank you everyone.

A special mention to the PTA committee for putting the event together and being a great team

Message from the PTA

Please don’t forget – we need you to return the Helping Hands slips and Raffle donation promises! You’ll find these on the Summer Fayre newsletter or in Reception. We cannot run the Fayre without your help before and during so please – even half an hour makes all the difference.

Many thanks
All at PTA
