As an FPTA we are always looking for new and fresh ways to raise money and support our wonderful school.  If you have any ideas or are able to help at events, please speak to either Jo Cresswell or Aisha Mack (co-Chairs of FPTA).
You can help us raise money, by doing very little.  When shopping online you can help school funds by using the ‘Giving Machine’ website www.thegivingmachine.co.uk.
