We meet approx 6 times a year (once per half-term) to discuss forthcoming events, new fund raising ideas and how the money raised could be put to the best use.


Each year we hold fund raising events with the biggest being our annual Christmas Fayre’. This is a fantastic, fun filled day which involves the whole school and has successfully replaced our Summer Fayre which we held over the past few years.


We also have a sponsored bounce, table top sales, evening bingo and many more. We are always looking for new ideas and for new members to join the committee.


Some of the things we helped to fund during the last year were:


  • Solar Panels/liner for swimming pool
  • Maths Scheme/Reading Books
  • Visiting Authors
  • New furniture for Owl's Way
  • Playground Equipment
  • Christmas party gifts
  • Ukeleles for Year 3
  • Outside visits
  • …to name but a few.
