  • Abbey Gates PTA Movie Night

    Posted on 14th June 2019

    Huge thank you to all that came to the family film night. Great success: £285 raised for the school, many sweets consumed, chips & sausage from Kelvin’s Fish Bar went down very well & Mary Poppin’s Returns was fab. Thank you Julia Moffat for your super organising skills, Kayley Whyatt who now probably has repetitive strain injury from face painting and Samantha Ryde, Julia Johnstone, Laura Kent and Adam Leivers-Dunn. So appreciated your help.

  • Abbey Gates PTA AGM Friday 19th July 14:00 - 15:00

    Posted on 14th June 2019

    The PTA will be holding their AGM on Friday 19th July 2-3 pm in the Art Room .
    This is the time when the present Committee step down and a new team are elected. Other supportive roles are discussed and filled. The PTA is a registered Charity and we can't exist without this structure and governance. We need parents and carers to get involved with supporting the team to guarantee its existence which not only raises crucial funds to give our children the educational experience and resources they need but to promote the AG community as a parent/carer body that engages with the school. We are not asking for big commitments but we need voices and support in running events and processes, your opinion on what the funds are spent on are also an important part of being in the team . We need new active team members even if its to help disseminate info to your class groups or help us communicate opinion and ideas to the class groups.
    If you are new to school or in the KS1 classes we need you! We have several parents stepping down and leaving the school as in the latter years of school so we need to be able to get parents/carers from the earlier years to get involved.
    If you can’t attend but wish to volunteer and to get involved please contact us:
    Be lovely to see as many of you that can make it!
    Kerry & Helen
