Current fundraising projects...
This year we have set ourselves the target of raising funds to help finance improvements to facilities for Yellow Class in addition to our regular support for all children. Be sure to keep an eye on our FUNdraising ladder in the hall to see how our total is progressing!

Please spread the word amongst friends and family as the more supporters we can rustle up, the more money we can raise for our school.

Whip-Crack-Away! Whip-Crack-Away! Whip-Crack-Away!
A whip cracking night was certainly had by all at the first ever PTFA Race Night fundraiser. Big thanks to Mr Lambillion-Jameson for proving a diligent and professional bookkeeper and to Mr Mansell for compering the evening with style.
After the first few races, a bizarre spaghetti and marshmallow challenge was introduced to a somewhat baffled crowd. It certainly got lots of the men engaged in some competitive engineering, whilst the ladies opened another bottle of Sauvignon, all the profits are for a jolly good cause after all...
Following a zing-tastic Thai Curry from The Curry Puff Company to recharge the weary gamblers, racing resumed, the punters wept and the bookie smiled. Fortunately it was all play money and it’s only the profits of the night that counts, hurray!
A big thanks to all who supported the night, we raised just shy of £200 to go in the pot towards the new outdoor equipment.
The highlight of the year, the school fete is our biggest fundraising event, and one of the most fun days of the year.
CHILDREN'S CHRISTMAS PARTY
Our children all had a fantastic time at the party and enjoyed a visit from the 'jolly old man in red'! Even some of the teachers were spotted strutting their stuff on the dance floor!
