Minutes of a meeting of the PTFA held on 28th January 2024.  Please click here to read the minutes from this meeting.

IMPORTANT - CHANGE OF VENUE FOR AGM - THIS WILL NOW BE HELD AT THE SCHOOL, NOT AT THE SIX BELLS!

Coming up!

Summer Vibes Dress-Up Day - Friday 24th May

If you have any of your own ideas for fundraising that you would like to do in aid of the PTFA, we'd love to hear from you, and you could earn your very own PTFA badge.

Looking further ahead, we will have our annual Summer Fair on Saturday 15th June - save the date! Also coming up are our popular Ice Lolly Fridays on 7th, 14th, 21st, 28th June and 5th, 12th July.  Finally for now, there will be another Bag2School collection on Thursday 13th June.

Thank you for your support.

Labelling uniform - don't forget

Please make sure that you label all of your child's clothing and belongings which they wear/bring to school. If you order name labels from http://www.stikins.co.uk the PTFA earns 30% commission on every order when you use our fundraising code 7650. Parents from our school who already use Stikins have commented on how good they are.

 

Thank you to everyone who came to the Painty Party last Friday. A fun evening was had by all, and we raised over £500 in the process.

 

Congratulations to Kate Harvey, on completing the Cambridge Half Marathon on Sunday. Including Gift Aid, Kate has already raised in excess of £500 in sponsorship for the PTFA. Thank you and well done, Kate! Kate's JustGiving page is still open for another few weeks if anyone would like to donate. https://www.justgiving.com/page/kate-camhalf

  • Thank you to everyone who donated to the Bag2School collection. We're pleased to confirm that it raised £120.

Annual General Meeting

The PTFA has worked hard over the past year organising fun events for children and families, as well as raising valuable funds for the school.  Have a look at the minutes from the recent AGM to find out more:

A big thank you to everyone who joined us for another fantastic quiz night, and especially to our quiz master, Mat Meredith. It raised £550.

Thank you to everyone who has supported the Secret Postcards Project too, whether in making postcards, coming to see them, helping at the exhibitions, or bidding in the auction. We're delighted that so many people seem to have enjoyed the project, and it looks set to have raised around £1,600. Click below to see the 'Big Reveal' document in which you can find out who was the artist behind each postcard. If you had a go at the quiz sheet, you can also find out the answers below.  

The money raised at these events will help with current projects, including developing the allotment area, and funding loose parts play equipment and storage, for more creative play opportunities at break times. We're also looking to provide some covered outdoor seating, as requested by the children. These bigger projects are on top of funding maths, art and library resources, coach travel for year 5/6 swimming lessons, and experiences such as the Living Eggs (chicks) project and Victorian school day. We work hard to ensure that all year groups benefit fairly from PTFA spending.
