PTA News – 23rd November

School Disco - 14th November

Thank you to everyone who attended the PTA School Disco and special thanks to Martin

Burton for providing the disco. The children had an amazing time and we raised £1,050,

including matched funding for the school.


Winter Wonderland - 14th December

We are all busy preparing for this year’s Winter Wonderland and have lots of things

planned, including Santa’s Grotto, children’s games, local Christmas stalls, the ever popular Secret Present Room (no grown ups allowed!) and, of course, homemade cakes,

mince pies and mulled wine.


If you are able to help at the event, please can you let us know by returning the form sent

out earlier or emailing


Christmas Raffle

This year’s Christmas raffle has some fabulous prizes and the generosity and support

from local businesses has been amazing. Prizes range from theatre vouchers to see an

Andrew Lloyd Webber musical and Formula 1 signed merchandise to meals at some of

our favourite local restaurants, as well as a range of family activities and some wonderful

boxes and baskets of gifts.


The tickets will come home in book bags in the next couple of days and we hope you will

be able to sell to friends, neighbours and relatives. Please return any unwanted tickets to

the school office, where there will also be additional books of tickets available for

anybody who would like them.


The draw will take place at the Winter Wonderland event at 17.30.

Good luck!


Visit Santa’s Grotto at Winter Wonderland

We will also be sending out a booking form shortly for those wishing to pre-book a visit to

see Santa in his grotto at the Winter Wonderland. Last year this was a really popular

activity, so we strongly advise pre-booking if you can. We will let you know your visit time

before the event, so you can plan around it.

Ho! Ho! Ho!


Santa’s Hat

Friday 30th November will be a non-school uniform day in order to fill this year’s bags

ready for the ever-popular Santa’s Hat stall at Winter Wonderland. Mrs Pearce-King has

just asked that the children wear sensible footwear.


In return, please could you put a small gift for either a boy or girl into the bag. This could

be a small toy, sweets, bubble bath, pencils etc. There will be drop off boxes in the playground on Friday morning for the bags.


Thank you for your support!


Bag 2 School Donation Day

You should shortly be receiving your Bag2School donation bag. This is a really easy and

convenient way of donating unwanted items and raising money in the process, so if you

have any old items of clothing etc you are able to donate, please bring it to school at drop

off on Monday 10th December.


Extra bags are available in the PTA box in the school office if you need any and the link

below gives a list of the items they accept.

Match funding

If you work for an organisation with a match funding programme, we would be really grateful

for your support. Last year match funding enabled us to boost our fundraising total by over

20%, so it really does make a difference to the projects we can support for the children.
