We are so excitied to be in partnership with The Strawberry Bank in Meriden, as they have chosen to support us as their charity!  They have already presented us with £442 raised at a quiz night held over Easter, and are providing the prosecco and staff to run a prosecco bar at our upcoming Summer Fair in July!  We have also planned a Meriden Ball for February 2023 at the Strawberry Bank, so watch this space!

The Story So Far....

Lockdown very much curtailed  our fundraising opportunities during 2020 and 2021, however we were not to be beaten and had to think more creatively!  We held raffles, virtual pop-up shops for Christmas, Mother's Day and Father's Day. We also organised a 'Break the Rules Days', Enterprise Week, a Christmas Fair for the children, and they even got to meet Santa!  Luckily, we also received some generous donations from local businesses.  Despite that pesky virus, during the school year 2020/2021 we managed to raise nearly £5900!  Some of this was used to purchase new technology for school, including interactive televisions for classes and extra ipads. We are also in the process of updating our reading scheme, and the remaining money will go towards that.

Where's the money going? 

The school has totally updated it's reading scheme.  Along with match funding from The Little Sutton English Hub and our previous PTA we have contributed towards this amazing new scheme - Floppy's Phonics.  We have also bought a large selection of Usbourne books suitable for all ages across school.

Our current project is to update our outside area, starting with the Early Years area. We have already purchased some new equipment such as sand and water trays, a climbing frame etc. There have been three large storage sheds purchased too, to keep all the Early Years outdoor equipment in.  

In addition, we are looking to Astroturf the Early Years 'Paddock' area which is currently a very muddy patch, which can only be used in the very dry weather.

For the rest of school, we want to improve and extend the current trim-trail and make the ground under and around it safer with a rubberised material.  

We have also purchased a commemorative Platinum Jubilee badge for every child.
