There will be a meeting of the Parent Teachers and Friends Association (PTFA)
Wednesday 25th September at 4:30 p.m. in the Key Stage 1 hall
Over the years the PTFA have organised numerous events to raise funds for the school. These have included: Christmas and Summer fayres and Easter Bingo, Easter bonnet competitions, discos, fashion shows, Christmas Bingo, sunflower competitions, book fayres, book sales, art sales to name a few. All proceeds go back to the children to pay towards theatre visitors in school, Christmas parties, picnics, themed weeks, books for the school library, board games and more.
It has become increasingly difficult to run these events as the school has got bigger and unfortunately the number of volunteers reducing. There is a significant amount of work involved in organising relevant paperwork, shopping, printing and distributing letters and tickets etc. before an event can take place, so the more volunteer/helpers the PTFA has the more events we can organise.
If you feel you would be able to help with some fundraising activities this year, we would love you to come along to the Annual General Meeting on Wednesday 25th September at 4:30 p.m.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
Sutton Academy will be coming in to school on Monday 23rd September to speak to the children in year 5 and 6 Assembly. Parents are welcome to come along and meet some of the Sutton Academy staff and to learn more about the school. Please enter via the school office from 9:10 a.m.
Thank you to everyone who took part in our Sunflower competition, our winners were:
- Zac Boulton for having the sunflower with the largest head at 45 cms
- Joshua Hughes for having the tallest sunflower at a massive 3.6m
- Thank you to everyone who brought in sponsor money. Bethany Carr raised the most sponsorship money at £46. Well done!
If you are a parent of a child in school and you are interested in becoming a parent volunteer there will be a meeting in school on Thursday 26th September. Please complete the slip at the bottom of the letter you can download below or alternatively you can collect a letter at the school office. An Edulink message will also be sent today.
As we have limited space for bikes to be kept safe and secure in school, only children in Year 5 and 6 can come to school on their bike and leave it in the bike sheds. If your child is in year 5 or 6 and you give permission for them to come to school on their bike, please complete a Cycle permit form available at the office and a permit will be issued to your child. You will need to know the serial number of the bike and children must have a bicycle lock. Please do not send your child on their bike until they have been issued with a permit to attach to their bike. Thank you.
