Community

Parent Links

The school enjoys positive and productive relationships with the parent body and the wider communities. The PTA is particularly actively and supportive in its social and fundraising role. The Headteacher and Deputy Headteacher attend all PTA meetings in order to discuss School Improvement priorities and to help facilitate fundraising events such as the Christmas Fair, Summer Fete, Quiz Night, Dragon Boat Racing etc. Within the academic year 2013-14, the PTA has donated £10, 000 to the re-surfacing of the Jungle Gym, £43,000 to the construction of the Multi-Use Games Area and £6000 towards the installation of Wi-Fi. Plans are currently afoot to purchase a trolley of lap-tops and I-Pads. Without PTA support, the school would struggle to drive forward its ambitious educational programmes. See PTA Website.

Village Links

The School also contributes to and benefits from local community through its close links with the Parish Council (£20,000 investment in the MUGA); the Windmill Public House, the Village Shop (Barbara’s); Weald Horticultural Society and St. George’s Church. The latter kindly hosts the school, for four major services of worship and celebration each year. See PTA Website.

A Breakfast Club at St George’s Church Hall started in September 2014 and has proved to be very popular. It runs from 7.30 a.m. Monday to Friday and children are escorted to the School Office in time for the start of the school day. The daily rate is £5.00 per child. There are still places available, both for regular and ad hoc attendance. If you are interested, please contact Valerie Gunderson on 01732 450272.
