One of the PTA’s key annual events is the Federation Summer Fair which will take place at the Infant School after school on Thursday 11th July—don’t miss it!

If you would be willing to help the PTA in some way, please email pta@bluecoatfederation.co.uk or leave a message at either school office.

The PTA will need a new treasurer from the  Autumn Term, if you might be able to help with this important role, please speak to Mr. Orlik or leave a message at one of the offices. 

Without the support and commitment of our PTA  committee we would not have the highly successful PTA that we have at Blue Coat.

The PTA have generously funded the following items across the Federation (over £3000 of funding):

Infants…     Author Visit     Dinosaur Experience (part funded)

                                   Author Book Boxes

Juniors…     Dreadlock Alien Day   Indoor Table Tennis Table

Installation of memorial bench for Mrs. Mandy Jones

Both Schools          Library Books & Termly Reading Awards

We are most fortunate to have such a skilled, hard-working and committed PTA always looking for ways to work with the community and improve the schools for all the Blue Coat children.

UNWANTED GIFTS
