We are a group of parents, staff and friends of the school.  We organise many events in school, some to raise money to buy lovely new things to make our school even better, some to provide fun events for the children to enjoy.

Events we organise include:

  • Termly school discos and tuck shop
  • Summer fairs
  • Tuck shops for home football matches
  • Cake sales
  • Charity fundraisers
  • Movie nights
  • Walks in the summer
  • Hiking challenges
  • Burns’ Night social
  • Sponsored fun events

……..and we are always looking for new ideas for fundraising and fun family activities.

Recently, we have raised money to help pay for our new adventure playground.  In the past, the money we have raised has paid for new i-pads, a climbing frame and ice-creams at the end of term and on visits.

PTA members at the moment include:

Sarah Roskell (Chair)
Laura Shallis (Treasurer)
Lisa Alarcon (Secretary)
Michelle Astley
Sue Smith
Gemma Sparks
Mary Bench
Vicky Perry (Deputy head)

Our PTA is a friendly group and everyone is very welcome to get involved.

Thanks to the PTA for organising another fab disco!

We really enjoyed the summer fair this year and luckily we had great weather! Thank you to the PTA for their part in making it all work so well.

Well done to all the children who took part in the PTA walk. Even though it wasn't a short walk, they all found that they had enough energy to continue when they found out they would get a medal!

The PTA organised a Spring Disco this year which we all enjoyed. There were some fantastic dance moves!

Some of the children explored Ingleton Caves at the weekend and met Santa. It was a wonderful day!

The PTA movie night was, as always, a great night. Everyone enjoyed watching Christmas films and eating popcorn and hotdogs.

Everyone enjoyed the PTA movie night. Along with watching some great films we also had a play outside, movie snacks, hotdogs and a fantastic fruit kebab.

We all had a great time at the PTA disco. We really enjoyed doing all the actions and showing off our moves. And of course the sweets!

The PTA organised another fantastic trip to see Santa in Ingleborough Caves.

We had a great night at the PTA movie night yesterday. Lots of us were very comfy in our onesies!

What great costumes at our Halloween and Bonfire Night PTA disco!

We all had a wonderful time at the PTA disco last night! What fantastic dance moves!

Sponsored Walk


43 Parents and children from the school took part in the 2nd annual sponsored walk to help raise funds for some outdoor equipment.
 Every single child completed the 8 mile circuit but a special mention must go to Ben, Holly and Taylor all from Year 1 and the real hero of the day, four year old Freya from the reception class.
Special thanks to Tina Riley for all the driving round she did and supporting the group around the route. We wont mention the name of the teacher, who got into Tina's car two miles short of the finish.
Thanks to all who took part or supported us with sponsorship, and we will let everyone know how much we have raised as soon as all monies are collected.
The weather was excellent, the tide was out and all the children had a fantastic time as you can see from the phographs.
