PTA Meeting – 27-04-22 – 8.00 pm

PTA Meeting – Sports Club – Wednesday 27th April 2022 – 8.00 pm

Very informal, a chance to have a drink and meet everyone to discuss plans and ideas for the Summer Fair. No pressure to take loads on but without parents help these vital fund-raising events cannot happen so if you can spare an hour please do pop down – we are a very friendly bunch and have a good laugh too!

PTA Summer Fair – Saturday 25th June 11 am – 1 pm – further details to follow.

Many thanksMichelle Scaife

Easter Disco

We are delighted that the PTA have scheduled some end of term discos for the children. These will take place on Tuesday 5th April, with the Infants disco from 6pm to 7pm, and the juniors disco from 7:15pm to 815pm. Entry costs just £3, which includes a drink and a snack. 

PTA Message re the Summer Fair

Unfortunately due to the updated Covid restrictions we will be unable to run our planned Summer Fair on 3rd July. This is usually one of our biggest fund raising opportunities so it is a real shame that this will be…

A message from the PTA

Dear Parents,

Many thanks for your continued support during this difficult time.

A plea for help!

At Dunnington Primary we have always been very fortunate to have lots of support from parents helping run our events. However, we also need support with the committee. Currently the committee is very top heavy with parents from the older years at school. We need support from Reception to Year 3 parents. It’s not onerous and you are not committing yourself anything by volunteering. We have several meetings a year and its more for ideas and support than anything else. If you would like to get involved or talk about a particular role please contact me at


This years AGM has been postponed due to COVID-19, it will now be held in January. Should anyone wish to volunteer for any role or post please get in touch – it would be appreciated!

Christmas Raffle:

We will be running our usual Christmas coloured hamper raffle this year. Each family will receive some raffle tickets which we would appreciate your support with. Friends, family, neighbours would all love a shot at winning one of the exciting hampers. Due to COVID all items will be quarantined for 72 hours.

Dates for your diary:

  • 11th December
    • Non uniform/Christmas jumper day – support for Save the Children and Dunnington PTA
  • 17th December
    • Break the rules day (within reason!), more information to follow.James, PTA Chair

PTA Christmas Cards

As you may know, the PTA have for several years now, organised for the children to design their own Christmas cards. Packs of Christmas cards and other goods such as mugs and tea towels, showing their child’s design, are then made available for parents to purchase if they wish.

The children usually design their cards in school, however this year the materials have unfortunately arrived late and we are unable to complete these in school in the time required. We are therefore going to send the resources home with children today, to enable your child to create their Christmas design at home this year. An order form will also be sent, for you to return to school with your child’s design if you wish to purchase any of the items. Order forms and designs will need to be returned to
school by Friday 20th November please.

To minimise contact as much as possible, a box will be placed outside the front door of school each morning while children are arriving. Please place your orders in the box.

PTA News

We will be finalising the accounts for last year tomorrow and then next week we will announce a date for the AGM.

Most importantly we need a new Chair and Treasurer! If you think you might be interested then please come and speak to me or come along to the AGM.

Your PTA Needs You!Michelle Scaife, PTA Chair
