Parents and Friends Association

The PFA is the Parents and Friends Association, a group of parents, grandparents and carers who support the school in a number of ways. The PFA is made up purely of volunteers who give their time to plan and run a series of events throughout the year.

Our mission is simple – to support the social side of school life while raising funds.

We feel that socialising and celebrating is such an important aspect of school life and our calendar of activities reflects this (click the link to the school calendar).

Each year, we ask the school for their ‘wish list’ and we help to fund school trips, Christmas celebrations, lunchtime activities, play-ground facilities, sporting equipment and so much more.

Our PFA is so successful because of the support of parents throughout the school. We rely on you helping, bringing your children along and of course contributing to the many fundraising events - hopefully enjoying some of the activities along the way.

You can get involved in a number of ways – attending meetings, helping out at occasional evens or offering your professional services, such as design, printing, catering etc.

If you would like to be more involved, please contact the school office for more information
