Fernvale PTA

Here at Fernvale we have a fantastic Parent Teacher Association. We are a friendly group who always welcome new members. Please contact the school office if you would like to join us. We meet a few times in the school year to plan and organise events. All our events are great fun and all the money raised goes back into school to benefit the children at Fernvale.  Look out for our newsletters advertising upcoming events.

The fabulous new reading books have been arriving at Fernvale. Thank you PTA!!!

Following our annual general meeting we have confirmed the following events and dates for this year.

Summer Fair 2016


This year we are working to raise funds to improve the children's playgrounds. Our first project was to purchase a play house for the Foundation and Key Stage One playground.

We ordered the playhouse and painted it in blue and cream. The children were very excited to watch the project take shape. The playhouse was officially opened to the children on the 16th October.

Here is a video of the opening ceremony!




We need your support to help us raise funds for the next part of the playground project the Fernvale Fort! We will be working to provide part of the funding for this adventurous project.

The fort will allow the children to develop their upper body strength through a range of climbing activities, it will also provide a super imaginative area and a shady table area. 

Following on from this we will be raising funds to support the school to develop a 'Multi Use Games Area' for the Key Stage Two playground.

Please continue to support our events and get involved when ever you can. 

Our Fundraising focus for this year is to raise money to purchase Ipads to enhance the children's learning. Earlier in the year we purchased ten Ipad minis with a charging and syncing unit. The children and staff have loved using them so much we are purchasing another ten so that all children can have more access to them. To fund this purchase we need your help. Please support our upcoming events, our newsletter below gives you all of the details.
