PTFA projects: Incredible motivation, co-operation and resilience by parents resulted in two significant community events during this half of the term: The Vintage Festival and Abington 10k and Fun Run, both events raised funds for the school, the 10k and Fun Run bringing in more than £6,000 for the PTFA and school. Your feedback through discussions in the playground and via the online survey has been very informative and will be useful in shaping future events, thanks for taking the time to feedback. The fund raising is enabling the school community to plan significant projects and enrichment activities that would otherwise be impossible to include for all pupils. Already planned for the Spring term are the following enrichment experiences funded through your support:
C1 & C2 - The Gruffalo’s Child (Norwich)
C3 & C4 - Charlie & the Chocolate Factory (London)
C5 - War Horse (London)

Swimming Pool
The 2015 Summer swimming season is now closed and the school leadership team will reflect on the programme. Your comments are very much welcomed in order that we can improve the systems year on year. Thank you to the pool carers who support the school community by looking after the water and making sure everything is safe for pupil and community use.
