Both Ms Waterman and Mrs Amal are really looking forward to taking on their new roles as part of the PTFA and are excited to meet current and new members alike. New faces are always welcome and we would love for you to join us for a cuppa and a chat once our next meeting date is finalised.

We will use our school website, Dojo and Twitter page to post upcoming meetings/events…

Here are the winners of our recent Easter Egg competition. We had so many fantastic entries and it was very hard to choose but eventually these 4 pupils took home the prizes for their amazing designs. Well done to our winners and thank you to all our SMITH children who entered!

Thank you to everyone who attended our first meeting as we transition in to our new roles as part of the Parents, Teachers and Friends Association.  It was great to meet new faces and to be welcomed to our PTFA.


Past  Events

Family Stay and Play

The PTFA were delighted to host a Family Stay and Play session, we had so many lovely comments and very positive feedback from our families. This was a lovely opportunity for children to play freely and our grown ups to enjoy a little cuppa and a chat.

We had such a great time celebrating together at the end of term, in the run up to Easter.

As part of the activities, we had an egg flinging competition. All the chocolate eggs survived their journeys uncracked, and were tasty prizes.
