Our mission is to ensure we all participate in the constant quest of knowledge, learning and adventure so that each individual can build upon their core strengths to aspire to make a real difference.

PTFA

 

Our PTFA raise valuable funds through a variety of events, which are both enjoyable for children, staff, governors and parents alike. All parents/carers are automatically members of our PTFA once their child starts school and any support, however little, is really appreciated.

Our events have been the Craft & Movie Night, Halloween, Valentine’s and Summer Outdoor Disco, Bingo Night, Summer Fair, Welcome Back camping weekend and we also have our Quiz Night and Halloween Disco to look forward to later this term (see dates below).
