VP Together (PTA) helps raise funds to enhance the learning experience for all the children in the school. VP Together is a friendly group of parents, grandparents and carers with children of all ages in the school from Nursery to Year 2.
We hold two main fundraising events during the year, the annual Christmas Fair and in June/July a Summer Fair. We also aim to hold fun events throughout the year to raise much needed funds for the children. Without willing parents, grandparents and carers who volunteer their time, VP Together cannot carry on its valuable work and raise much needed funds.
Recently we have purchased new reading scheme books which were much needed by the school at a cost of £836.82. Funds enabling us to purchase the books was raised from the Christmas Fair and the sale of Christmas cards, mugs, tags and coasters designed by the children.
This year the money raised also enabled us to pay £5 per child towards the cost of their theatre ticket for the annual panto trip. This enabled the cost of the trip to be reduced from £15 to £10 per child. VP Together also provided snacks and a drink for every child to enjoy during the interval.
If you cannot attend meetings due to work commitments etc, we would love to hear your views and ideas for fundraising ideas or perhaps you would be willing to help out at our events held during the year.
Everyone is welcome and it is a great way to meet new friends at the same time as helping your child’s school. Details of meetings are sent home by e-mail, text and via our Facebook page - VP Together (PTA). You can follow this link to find us https://www.facebook.com/group...

Parentkind is the leading membership organisation for parent teacher associations in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Member associations (PTAs, PTFAs, Friends Associations, Home School Associations, Parent Councils, Parent Forums to name a few) come in all shapes and sizes, so Parentkind seeks to represent all these parent groups as they strive to help every child in their school. In February 2018 the name was changed from PTA UK to Parentkind. This was to help achieve this mission and better reflect the range of ways in which Parentkind will support all parents in their child’s education and school life. And indeed embrace the full range of mums, dads, grandparents and carers who carry out this role.
