Its been a great start to the new school year and we have loved welcoming all of our Reception children this week. They have been having an absolutely wonderful time.
We wanted to just update our families on a few key elements that you will all need to be aware of for the coming year. Please refer back to this letter in the coming months as it contains important information.
Dates for your diary.
PTCA letters and news
The PTCA is the voluntary organisation that brings together parents, teachers and the wider community to support the school, raise funds and ensure all parents have the opportunity to be involved in their children’s school community. All parents and carers are automatically a member of the PTCA. We hold events in and out of school which are open to parents, carers, teachers and the wider community, with two main aims;
1. Fundraising– the PTCA fundraises to buy additional equipment to enrich the children’s experience of school. So far we’ve focused upon buying smaller items such as additional PE equipment & play equipment so that most money can be saved to spend on developing the playground with equipment, climbing frames and other improvements.
2. Social events – to help all the families connected with the school to feel involved and foster a fantastic community atmosphere at Whitehall Park.
