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

PTA Annual General Meeting (AGM)

The PTA Annual General Meeting is held at the beginning of the academic year and provides an opportunity for all parents to come along and hear in more detail about the work of the PTA, the events we have run, the funds we have raised and how the money has been spent. It is also the occasion when we elect our new committee members.

This year the meeting will take place at 8pm on Tuesday 25th September at the Sports Club.
