The Parents' Association includes all the parents in the school. A small group of parent volunteers operates as an organising committee and works on behalf of the PA. We contribute to school life in the following ways:
We organise all the after-school activities. The money received goes towards paying the various talented teaching and coaching staff, as well as covering other general costs incurred from the activities.
We organise fundraisers at various points in the year – some big, some small. All funds raised go directly to the school.
We meet throughout the year to manage our regular annual commitments (eg. Xmas Fair), but also to consider how we might contribute to the school and wider community in new and different ways.
All ideas and contributions are always extremely valued whether you want to help out at a particular event, join the committee, or have skills that you think would be of benefit to us. If you are new to the school, the PA is a great way of getting involved – and surprisingly good fun.

25-01-2017 PA News – Supervision
We seem to have created some confusion over supervision and, in hindsight, should have been clearer on the forms.
When we asked for supervision dates these were dates where parents would be available when there was no supervision. This was to try to save having to chase people to fill empty slots on the sign-up sheets. Should have been clearer - apologies
We only need a certain number of supervisors and clearly there would be dates where more than one parent was available
So - to avoid confusion:
