“Well Done Ladies a fantastic Fair“
“Thank you so much. We all had a fab afternoon.”
“Well done all it was a brilliant fair!”
“And thank you to all the amazing helpers (can't name them all - you know who you are!).”
“Very well done! Great event. Thanks to everyone.”
“Fantastic event ! Thank you for all your hard work, it was a great success!”
“Amazing day, amazing effort...here’s to raising an amazing amount of money! Thanks so much all!”
Last year's Christmas Fair saw just one parent alone raise an additional £1331.00p because their employer matched the money raised from the stall this parent was on.
Many companies offer their employees the chance to take part in a matched funding scheme, whereby the company will provide additional funding to a good cause (usually on a £ for £ basis up to a maximum amount).The amount offered will vary on the organisation and the conditions that may apply.
Many organisations offer a scheme but do not generally advertise this to their staff very well, so you may need to check with your Human Resources department. For more information please click here.
If you are feeling inspired to volunteer and help at these school events please get in touch by completing the form below. Without our organisers, class reps, volunteers and helpers the school would not benefit from the funds raised via these events.
Why not come along to the next PTA meeting to find out more?
What was the money spent on?
The PTA has funded the upgrading and improvement works to the KS1 playground. The first phase has been completed with smart new astro turf, giving the look of fresh grass all year round. The second phase should be carried out later on in the year and this will comprise of new play equipment for the children.
The PTA has also funded Maths trays for each year group to ensure there are enough resources for everyone. This will ensure the maths mastery approach is being taught effectively with the use of enough resources for all children. Resources are a crucial necessity when teaching maths to ensure all children are able to access and understand their learning.
Other money donated by the PTA will be funding:
The top 100 books for years 3, 4, 5, and 6 with other years planned.
Christmas crackers for the children’s Christmas dinner.
A donation to each class for equipment and resources.
Allotment funding for Mr Stevenson.
