To find out more about getting involved in the Parents' Association, read our leaflet.

All parents of children at The Crabtree Schools are members of the Parents' Association. The Association has two aims: firstly to raise money to benefit children at both the Junior and Infants' Schools. Secondly, and perhaps more importantly, to promote the strong sense community that exists between parents, children and staff.

Association Events

Over the years the PA has hosted a wide variety of social and fund raising events including wine tasting, quiz nights, dinner dances, children's discos, sponsored walks and fashion shows ... to name but a few!

Some events have become much loved fixtures in the school calendar:

  • The Crabtree Schools' Fireworks Display is a huge undertaking, but provides a fantastic evening's entertainment for the wider community whilst raising considerable funds for the schools.
  • There are two children's discos each year - the children love donning their disco gear and showing off their moves on the dance floor!
  • For many children at Crabtree the run up to Christmas is not complete without visiting Father Christmas and buying mum or dad a present at the PA Christmas Fair.
  • Our final event of the year is the Summer Fair, which is a great day out for all the family and a real celebration of the school community.

The PA committee is always on the look-out for new ideas for events. Whatever your area of expertise or interest, why not get in touch?

Fund Raising

According to our constitution the PA aims to provide funds for the schools to enable them to buy items for the children "not met through statutory funds". Recently we have helped towards the costs of music provision at the Junior School and have funded the refurbishment of the ICT suite. These items really help to improve the learning experience of all children at the school.

We raise further funds for the schools by organising the sale of school uniform. This ensures that all parents can access good quality uniform at a fair price, with any profit made benefiting the children themselves. As well as new uniform we always have a stock of second hand uniform available.

You can raise money for the Parents' Association just by completing your online shopping via Spend and Raise. Click on the link to the left of this page to find out more ... or click on the logo below to start shopping!
