We are a like minded group of people who are all in the PTA to raise funds to provide enriching experiences for all pupils and to make the environment in which they learn engaging and safe. We host many events throughout the year and have used these funds to subsidise things like: coach costs; pay for outside visitors like 'Bugfest'; contribute towards the cost of the trim trail; provide water bottles for all reception children when they start school; fund the Year 6 leavers' gifts; pay for Year 5's sleepover supper; pay for resources and contribute towards the cost of the security doors at the office. 


We welcome new members and are always looking for new fundraising ideas. Many people feel that they need to commit to every meeting and event, but this is not the case. We are grateful of any support however small - from event ideas, wrapping presents, bagging sweets, attending events or contacting local businesses. If you feel that you could contribute to the PTA please do get in touch.


The PTA bought Easter Eggs for the whole school. Thanks to Morrison's Weymouth for supplying them.
