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, Raffles, Indulgence Evenings, Storytelling Evenings
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. The more the merrier!!
Please get in touch with one of the committee members, if you would like to help us raise money for your school!
