Every half term the FOYPC. Committee attends a meeting to work together to organise social and recreational events for parents, children and staff and aims to provide numerous items of equipment and financial help with major purchases. One of the most valuable contributions made by the FOYPC. are playschemes during the Easter and also long summer vacation. The Easter scheme runs for 4 days ( Mon -Thurs 10 -3 )and the summer scheme runs for three weeks ( 4 days a week) in school and is organised by paid play leaders supported by voluntary helpers. The scheme is financed by the fund raising efforts of the FOYPC. Other Regular events that FOYPC help run are Christmas and summer fairs, summer barbeque and spring plant sales. FOYPC aim to also raise funds for Christmas and educational entertainments for the children. Whilst it may not be possible to make the playscheme available to all children due to the child’s specific needs, efforts are made to include as many pupils as possible.
