ST ANDREW’S C.E. PRIMARY SCHOOL
(FOR THE CHILDREN)
The PTfA (Parent, Teachers, Friends Association) welcome you all back to this new school year at St Andrew’s and would like to tell you about some up and coming events, our news and some exciting new resources for the school.
Our main aim is to raise and disperse funds in order to benefit the school and therefore the children. This we are doing throughout the year in small and larger events which we as committee members will happily organise and run but would be grateful for any input from you at any time you can give.
Funds dispersed go towards:- subsidising school trips, special events in school, play equipment, leavers gifts and many other things.
