Introduction to The PTA
All Parents, Guardians & Staff are members of the PTA, and are welcome to any committee meetings.
The next meeting will be on 10th February, 7.30pm at The Brewers Arms.
Our small PTA Committee needs more help if we are to rise to the challenge and put on a wide programme of events to bring the community together to have fun and raise much needed funds for the school.

welcomed to see the number of people
arriving at the quiz with their own
reusable plastic glasses. This definitely
reduced the amount of plastic that we
were getting through. So thank you.
Remember you are welcome to bring your
own reusable plastic cups and glasses to
any of the PTA events and we will happily
