This school year (2017/18) the elected PTA Committee office holders are:
Chair: Zoë Sellek (mother of Tilly in Yr5 and Evie in Y2)
Vice Chair: Sophia Upton (mother of Richard in Yr6 and Patrick in Yr4)

We hold office for one calendar year and see our role as encouraging other parents to offer their time and help. Everybody has busy lives but we enjoy the challenge set by our excellent staff to raise money for a wide range of projects and to support school events. This year we are raising funds to update the school's IT equipment. In previous years our efforts have provided such items as new laptops, gym equipment, rugby kits, library books and storage.
We also subsidise school outings, swimming lessons and pay for the Year 6 leavers’ gifts. The children's Christmas parties and Easter Egg Hunts are run by the PTA.
Each year the PTA organised a tremendously popular school fete. This year we have organised a Halloween Party and a 'Quiz and Chips' event. We have an annual Easter Egg hunt to which our September intake and younger siblings are invited. In previous years we have held a ‘Fashion Show’, a Spring Ball a 'Horse and Dog Show' and ‘Bag2School’ collections of nearly new clothes. We also organise the end year barbeque.
