We are fortunate at our school to have a PA that is and has been an integral part of the school community for a number of years.
In its time, the FPPA has raised thousands of pounds, which has been spent on equipment and resources to enhance our children’s education experience and the school’s facilities. However, it is about much more than simply fundraising. The FPPA exists to provide closer links between home and school and it is an excellent way to bring staff, parents and friends together socially in support of the school, working towards a common goal. Obviously, as in any organisation, we have experienced some challenges but with the continued support of parents and staff, the FPPA has generally succeeded in its efforts.
All families are automatically members of the FPPA when their child joins our school. The FPPA committee is extremely conscious of the ethos and diversity of our school, and we try very hard when organising and planning events to respect this.
How do we get information to you?
We communicate with you either by direct email or via the School weekly newsletter. The communication includes information on forthcoming events and dates plus requests for assistance, particularly when we are planning large events. Following a FPPA event, we always write on the newsletter to let you know how much was raised, and if we can, we tell you what the money will be spent on.
