We are a group of parents/carers who come together to raise funds for the school. We organise community events and activities throughout the academic year. We have fluid communication with Mr Budge and his team to set our goals and strengthen our school community. Ultimately, we provide the school with additional funding to enhance our children’s education and have fun!
Funds raised in previous years have provided the school with:
- The stage in the main hall.
- Additional play equipment.
- Field trips.
- Landscaping of the school grounds.
Funds raised over the next academic year will ensure our arts spaces continue to inspire, our outdoor learning areas flourish and our community engagement is better than ever!
We encourage all parents and carers to contribute in any way they can. Our class representatives and trustees will share information and reach out for help when needed. Please update them with your contact details. We have so many talented and skilled people in our community and every little contribution helps.
Trustees of the Parent Council are:
- Chair: Charlotte Taylor
- Vice-Chairs: Emma Lewer, Lucy Newman
- Secretary: vacant position
- Treasurer: Caroline Donoghue

Details of the candidates and meeting are typically communicated in Term 1.
