A massive thank you to everyone who supported the Summer Festival.
To everyone who came, who helped, who baked, who donated, who performed - thank you. You all helped to make it a fantastic afternoon. The sun shone and the school field was packed with families having fun. We had a  great turnout and the Summer Festival raised an incredible £2261.00,
A fantastic achievement by all involved. 








Band Night 2017



The PTFA Band Night was a fun and successful event, including the amazing Toy Machine, Jamie Segrave and Provenance Kitchen. Big thanks to Bury Lane Farm Shop, Pinksters and Briggs & Mortimer too – without their generous sponsorship we would not have been able to run the Gin Bar, which proved to be a very popular addition to the night! It was fantastic to see so many people enjoying the music, food and atmosphere.
