The St Jude’s Parents and Families Association are a group of parents and friends who regularly get together to organise events and raise additional funds for the benefit of the school and the pupils. We meet roughly once a month, usually at 7.30pm in the school staff room. Exact dates can be found on the newsletter and here on the website. New members and ideas are always welcome.
We understand that not everyone has the time to commit to regular meetings, and so have been working over the past academic year to try to build up a bank of volunteers who we can call on for specific events, such as discos or the summer fair. If you think this could apply to you then we'd love to hear from you. We can be contacted at any time either via the Main Office (and leave a message) or via our email address Stjudespfa@Gmail.com
The committee members are listed below:
Chair - Charlotte Fairman
Treasurer - Katherine Gargett
Vice Treasurer - Rachel Rodriguez-Garcia
Secretary - Katherine Hughes
We see our role as a mixture of fundraising for those additional extras which are not available in the school budget, and organising activities which are sociable and fun. In the previous few years we have raised money towards the new Key Stage 1 kitchen, as well as helping purchase equipment and food for the school chickens, supporting the new uniform changeover with some subsidies towards the cost, funding forest school sessions and author visits. We could not do this without the support of teachers, parents and pupils in attending events and spending your money.
This year we are already planning a winter disco, the Christmas market, an Easter disco and egg hunt and of course our annual summer fair. Dates for all these events can be found below.

New members are always welcome. Not everyone makes every meeting, so don't be put off if you can only come to some. All help is always gratefully received.
