About Us

We're a friendly group of parents and teachers who organise fundraising events throughout the school year, to provide the children with the extra things a school budget doesn't cover. We meet on a regular basis to plan, critique and discuss new ideas. If you'd like to help with any aspect of this you can contact us on the details below.


Our bigger events raise a substantial amount of money and on average we generate roughly £10,000 in a school year. We think that's pretty good going and realise that without the continued support of the parents/carers and the wider community this would not be possible.


We have used funds recently to buy a suite of Google Chrome books (tablets) for Years 3-4; a valuable resource already being used effectively by Years 5-6. Following the recent Ofsted report, we have agreed to replenish the reading book stock in school, as this was identified as being 'a little bit tatty.'
