Here at the PTA we are looking forward to welcoming all new and existing parents to Ickleford Primary School over the coming year.
The PTA is quite simply a warm & friendly bunch of parents, teachers & staff working closely to support the school community and fundraise for improved opportunities for students. Consisting of a dedicated board of Trustees, Committee Members, parents and carers, we continue to host and support a number of school events, activities and projects whilst having fun on the way.
We’re pleased to continue to fund a number of commitments in supporting the school and children; for example the Year 3 Cello lessons, Year 6 leavers’ photos, and the 'Reception Welcome Day' lunches.
We’re also really proud to make significant contribution to a number of other school-wide projects as well as completing a few of our own. These include the break-time play equipment - with the help and support of the lunchtime supervisory staff, the purchase of much needed new reading books, and chalkboards to assist the work of the school’s SENCO and improve the support available to those that need it.
And then there’s the continued support for the school performances by providing light refreshments and snacks, the fun run and the ever popular school discos, as well as a few things to bring the school and wider community together whilst raising some important funds. Perhaps our most exciting recent offering is the re-introduction of our very own fireworks display which bought the crowds in their hundreds in 2016 and put us firmly on the local firework map ahead of our spectacular planned for 2017.
