The school has a thriving PTA.  They arrange social evenings and fun fund-raising events for the school.  Every year the PTA organises and runs Summer and the Christmas fairs, together with discos and other events for all pupils throughout the year.  The committee are extremely hard working and committed to supporting all children in the school.  We are very grateful to the PTA who has recently funded smartboards and everything for the children’s Christmas parties.  They continue to support the school to be a strong part of the local community. 

The PTA regularly seeks help.  Please support the committee members whenever possible.  Helpers are always urgently needed to share the workload at events.  Please volunteer when you can.   PTA meetings are held regularly.  Dates and times of meetings are published in the school newsletters.  Parents are always welcome to come along.

Mrs Murdoch or Mrs Ryman attend meetings along with another member of the teaching staff.

The PTA welcome questions/comments from parents.  If you wish to contact them, please email them via the school office –
