How do I find out what is going on?
We regularly provide updates through a number of means including letters in book bags, Parentmail, text messaging, posters, and via our Notice board on the wall in the Playground.
Always keep a lookout for news!!
How do I get involved?
You can become as involved as much as you like! From being a committee member, to helping out at events, there is always help needed, and the more people we have, the easier it is manage events, and also to make more money!
For events where you are working with children and the parents/carers are not present, you will need to be DBS checked. This is a very straightforward, simple procedure, and forms are available from the school office.
We thank you for your support and look forward to seeing you at our upcoming events!
