Welcome to Helping Hands

Helping Hands is the parent/teacher association and fundraising arm of the school. The main function of Helping Hands is to bring parents, families, friends, staff and the local community together socially and to support the school.


We host a variety of social events to build community and raise funds. These include large events such as the Summer and Christmas Fairs and the International Evening and smaller events, such as year group discos, craft sessions and trips to the local parks. We also run regular second hand uniform and refreshment sales throughout the year. 

There are many ways, large and small, to get involved with Helping Hands including:

  • manning a regular after school uniform, drinks or ice cream stall for half an hour 
  • helping to plan a fair or an individual stall at a fair
  • making things to sell at a fair
  • organising class and year group socials events for the classes your children are in

Everyone involved in Helping Hands is a volunteer. We come from a wide range of backgrounds and speak many different languages, so don’t be put off if English is not your strong point! Our meetings are advertised by texts from the school and in the Friday Flyer and are open to all parents and carers, so just turn up if you want to get involved. Small children and babies are welcome too.
