Hi everyone and welcome to our page!
Who are we?
We are fortunate at our school to have a Parent's & Friends Association (PFA) that is an integral part of the school community. Since the committee was first established we have raised thousands of pounds, which has been spent on equipment and resources to enhance our children’s educational experience and the school’s facilities.
Our association is about much more than simply fundraising. We exist to provide closer links between home and school and it is an excellent way to bring staff, parents, and friends together socially in support of the school, working towards a common goal. It’s fun too - just ask any of the Committee members or volunteers.
All parents and members of the school community are encouraged to get involved, even if they only have a small amount of time available.
We welcome any help from parents, teachers, and friends, and have a growing list of volunteers who commit some of their time to help the association. Every little helps, so just one hour of assisting at an event, wrapping lucky dip prizes, or folding raffle tickets (just a few examples) would be invaluable.
If you would like to join our team please speak to a committee member, come along to our next meeting or email us – PFA@heathkesgrave.suffolk.sch.uk
Message from David Whatley, Headteacher
The PFA at Heath play a pivotal role in helping the school to continually grow and improve. The fantastic work they do to raise funds for school projects that enhance both the school environment and the experiences children have at school, is essential and very much appreciated by myself and the whole school community.
Events coming soon...
Thank you to everyone who joined us for our first (of many) Heath Primary School community litter pick. A very big thank you to Rubbish Walks for helping to organise and run the event.
We are already planning our next Litter pick - so watch this space!
Silly Sock Day was great fun for the children and staff. It was an excellent opportunity to celebrate what makes us all unique and to raise awareness of Autism.
