Dear Parents

We are Lucy Breslan, Cassie Smith and Nikki Smith and would like to take this opportunity to introduce ourselves as your new PA Chair and Joint Vice Chairs for this year.

For those people already involved with the PA we would like to thank you for your ongoing support and look forward to continuing the hard work of the PA in the coming year. For those of you who don’t know the PA we are a group of parents and grandparents who get together approximately once each half term in the school staff room at 7.00pm. The meetings usually last about an hour.

Our aim throughout the year is to raise as much money as possible and have fun along the way. This money is then spent by the school to enhance our children’s learning by providing them with additional equipment.

It was great to see some new faces at the AGM and part of our aim this year is to increase the number of parents involved with the PA as unfortunately a few of our member’s children are moving onto pastures new at the end of the academic year. You can get involved by either attending meetings, helping with one of our fund raising events:- Christmas Market, Summer Fayre, Discos, Quiz Evenings. We also have a closed Facebook page :- Friends of Rydon Primary School PA, which you are able to join if you are a parent or carer of a child at Rydon Primary School. We are not asking you to give any more time than you are able to, sometimes just a fresh point of view and a new idea is all it takes. With the modern technology available today you can post your ideas onto our Facebook page and start to build a good social network with fellow mums and dads.

If you are interested in getting involved in any events or would like to give some input in whatever form, please feel free to contact us via our Facebook group or contact the office and leave a message for either Lucy, Cassie or Nikki on 01626 356420.

We look forward to seeing you!

Lucy Breslan, Cassie Smith and Nikki Smith
Chair & Vice Chairs


If you are interested in joining the PA at any time during the next school year please contact the school office, telling them your name and the name of your child and their class and we will make sure you get a copy of the minutes from the meetings and let you know the dates of future ones.
