Bringing our community together
The PTA make a tremendous contribution to school life. The regular events which we organise enrich not only our children's educations but also, through the organisation of events such as the School Gala and Christmas Fayre, we aim to bring our whole community together.
Over the past year we have raised thousands of pounds for our school. This money has been used to fund a variety of activities to improve the learning of our pupils. For example, we have provided financial assistance to support the establishment of our Financial Capability projects.
Halloween Events - we host Halloween parties for all children. Parents are always welcome to stay and help with our Infant Party.
Santa Run - we have strong links with Lapland with Santa taking time out from his busy pre-Christmas schedule to visit children in Gildersome. A large proportion of the money raised during this event is donated to local charities.
Christmas Fayre - this traditional annual event is a major part of our school's festive calendar. In recent years we have developed the Fayre to provide numerous opportunities for children to sell their own produce.
Valentine's Disco - an annual event for our juniors.
Easter Egg Hunt - an annual event for our infants.
Summer Gala - this traditional event has become a major part of village life. As with our Christmas fayre we have developed this in recent years to encourage our children to raise funds for their classes by organising their own stalls.
Leaver's Party - an annual event for school leavers.
Additional Activities - as well as organising the events above we also play an active role in providing refreshments at a number of events within the school calendar, such as sports days, open evenings and football galas.
