All parents and carers of children at the school are members of the Parent Teacher Association also known as ‘Friends of Cawston Grange’.
The PTA is very active and fosters close contact between parents and the school. We organise a variety of well-attended social events and hold various fund raising functions, which have had a very significant effect on the provision of resources for the school. Our challenge is to help raise additional funding for the school, involve the school and wider community - whilst having fun!
Regular events we help to organise…
Summer Sizzler, Easter Egg Hunt, Children’s Discos, and Seasonal Raffles
Would you like to get involved? You can contribute as little or as much as you can. There is no formal commitment and everyone is welcome to come along and help. Please get in touch with one of the committee members, or find us on Facebook 'Friends of Cawston Grange PTA'
Current Committee Members
Sarah Burchill (Chair), TBC (Vice Chair), Liz Dean (Treasurer), Sarah Hayward-Bradley (Minutes Secretary), Lindsey Walsh (Communications Secretary), Steph Dixon (Fundraising Lead), Clare Polley, Milly Hutchinson, Phil Cooke, Nicola Burbery
The playground project is likely to cost around £25,000. We are using £5,500, the majority of last year’s fundraising pot, to launch the appeal. With your support, we hope to increase this to £15,000 , and have one piece of equipment installed by the end of the school year.
We aim to do this largely through sponsorship and donation, and by running a full programme of fundraising activities throughout the year.
