At Boxgrove we want every child to:
Thank you everyone for coming to the Summer Fair on Saturday 16th June!
We're so glad the weather held up for us and we hope you all had a great time.
We'd like to thank everyone who helped out on the day, the Boxgrove staff, Mrs Stacey, Mrs Hall and Mrs Blakeway for being our MCs, the local companies who have been so generous, our main sponsors Burns and Webber Estate Agents and especially those who helped set up and clear away the event stalls/activities as well the helpers who tidied up the school grounds at the end of the day.
A special thank you goes must go to Lynn - you made our day bringing in Bacon rolls mid morning to all the workers, that was the best motivator to us all!
An extra special thank you must go to the BPTA Summer Fair Committee
Zoe, Lisa, Katie, Wendy, Rachel, Tracey & Sam - without people like you these events just wouldn't happen!
And finally a BIG, BIG thank you to everyone who came and supported the school, it was wonderful to see so many of you there and we cannot thank you enough!
Please remember to collect your tokens for helping on a stall on the day or helping to set up or clear away the event. Every 30 minutes you helped equals to 1 token which are house points for your child's house. The house which has the most tokens at the end of the school year will get an extra Mufti day!
If you go to the office the tub of tokens will be in the entrance lobby. Choose your childs house colour and then put them in the correct colour tube.

This year Sponsorship Boards were provided by local Estate Agents Burns & Webber!
We have received a fantastic response from volunteers who allowed a Sponsorship Board to be displayed at their property, which helped advertise the Boxgrove Summer Fair for us.
Thank you to all who gave permission for a board to be placed outside their home and a special thank you to Burns & Webber for their very generous sponsorship!
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.
