PALS

What is PALS? 

PALS is a Registered Charity which was established by parents & teachers to raise money for the school to enhance our pupils learning experiences and support the curriculum.

This year alone we have provided funding for school trips, we have purchased the interactive touch screen, the Key Stage 2 playground equipment, leavers’ gifts and sports equipment!

If you would like to help PALs to make a difference, by joining the Committee or volunteering at our events, then please contact a member of the Committee via:  PALS_MK@aol.com

FUNDRAISING UPDATE

We would like to say a BIG thank you to everyone who volunteered at or attended our Summer Fete last term, we hope that you enjoyed it. It was a great afternoon and we raised just over £3,000! With this and existing funds we were able to purchase the Interactive touchscreen for the hall as well as contributing funds to replace the KS1 playground equipment and build the Year 1 Outdoor Classroom.  The next fundraising project is for some fitness equipment for the KS2 playground.
