PTA - Classlist
The PTA would love to introduce you to a new communication tool they are launching to the whole school community.
All parents will be sent an email directly from the app inviting you to sign up. The PTA would love every single parent in the school to create an account to enable full school communication.
This is a fantastic app - we hope it can build on a real community feel to the school. The PTA want it to replace the PTA WhatsApp groups, Facebook communication and PTA Parentmail notices, but it will do so much more - online ticketing for events, connecting multiple year groups and make it easier to communicate with all parents of children in a particular club - eg all basketball parents or parents of gardening club for example.

Quiz Night & AGM Thank You
Happy half term everyone!
We hope you all have some lovely plans, even if they only involve a very well earned rest!
We'd like to thank everyone who came to our Quiz night last week for their fantastic support. It was definitely our biggest turnout to a PTA AGM for a few years and on top of that we had a lot of fun doing a quiz, expertly hosted by Mr Thorne.
Well done to the winning team Agatha Quiztie, their knowledge of obscure 90s pop artists and pandemic news headlines was second to none!! Also thanks to The Lemon Plaice for the delicious fish and chips served up, it definitely served as a good base for all the wine we sold...
But finally, thanks to everyone who came, we raised a whopping £620! Absolutely brilliant amount to start the year with and hopefully a great contribution for the school's projects this year.
