Parents and Friends Association
We are a very active organisation, comprised mostly of parents but also grandparents, villagers and former parents, arranging many fund raising events throughout the year such as:
- Film nights or story telling sessions (for the children)
- Fairs at Christmas and Easter
- Sports Day Barbecue
- Non uniform days
- Quiz nights
This year we have subsidised transport costs for a whole range of trips and visits including the coach to the swimming pool in the summer term.
We also hold good quality second hand uniforms which are available all year at £1 per item.
If you are interested in joining the committee, please contact Rachel Mitchell the school secretary on 01935 881367 and she will put you in touch with the PFA Chairperson.
Even if you're not on the committee, your help is always appreciated, whether it's organising events, serving teas at the Christmas Fair, or just attending as many events as you can.
A little word from our current PFA Chair ...
We moved as a family to West Chinnock in 2016 from West Sussex. We were expecting a different environment, but wow, what a contrast!
Becoming involved in the PFA Committee was an excellent way for me to not only meet new people, but also to play a part in shaping our own children’s school environment. We have loved how involved you can be with school life at West Chinnock – what a privilege to share this aspect of our children’s lives with them!
Taking on the role of Chair was not something I had envisaged when we moved here and our previous Chair has left a hard act to follow! However, we have a great team of parents and there are always so many fantastic ideas bubbling around that it is hard not to share the excitement and want to be involved.
Since I first visited West Chinnock Primary School, it has struck me as being a very special school. With a committed PFA we want to keep it that way and do all we can to put on fun events for our community and continue to successfully raise funds to enhance the facilities and experiences our children enjoy through their time at West Chinnock Primary School.
Do get in touch if you would like to be involved, have any fundraising ideas, or know of any potential sponsors who would love to partner with us!
