Get involved!

Without our volunteers, we couldn’t run the events and activities that we do. Not only would the children miss out on fun activities (there’d be no Father Christmas at the Christmas Fair!) but the school would not be able to afford the additional resources which our fundraising efforts support.


And there are more benefits than just helping to improve the school's facilities. The other rewards of giving up a little of your time are:


  • Seeing families enjoying themselves at events 

  • Giving your children a reason to feel proud of you 

  • Becoming more involved in the school 

  • Getting to know a wider circle of teachers and families.


How you can help...


  • Attend committee meetings – have your say and meet other parents 

  • Volunteer to help at events - and join the fun 

  • Sign up to the school lottery – for a chance to win cash prizes 

  • Register with – and raise money while you shop! 


If you’d like to join the committee, volunteer to help at the events above, or have new ideas for us, email []
