The FSA is the Parent/Friend Association connected to our school. It is a dedicated group of willing volunteers who meet regularly to plan and carry out fun activities that support the school and bring in extra funds. Any money raised is then given back to the school to be spent on the pupils. Last academic year the total raised was £2294. This was used for many enrichment activities including coach subsidies for trips to the pantomime, World Museum, Spaceport, Outdoor Elements; a fantastic Birds of Prey day; a new speaker for the hall for discos; Christmas party gifts, end of year treats, class prize boxes and newspaper subscriptions. We would really like more people to become involved as we lost a lot of active members in July when their children moved to high school. We hold several planning meetings during the year, usually focusing on the next event – including lots of planning for our star attraction, Santa Stops at Sabden (see photo below).
From donating, to helping, to attending, everyone (neighbours, friends, families) plays a huge part and helps keep our school and the FSA vibrant and exciting.
This year, one of our key aims will be to raise the money for a new Phonics Scheme, Monster Phonics. Phonics plays a huge role in children’s learning to read and this scheme presents phonics in a fun and accessible way for all children with a wealth of resources.

No matter how great or small your contribution may be, please do get involved; even if it’s only 5 minutes to offer suggestions, half an hour serving coffee, or just attending our events. Everything matters and we are always truly grateful.

Following Boris Johnson’s 8pm announcement we now know that as of midnight tonight the country has entered a new period of Lockdown, a Lockdown that includes the closure of school.
School will be open for the children of Key Workers and for pupils who are deemed vulnerable. All pupils will be provided with work in order for them to keep learning.
Tonight’s announcement was very short notice for you as parents and also for us as a Staff. Tomorrow, by 11am there will be three tasks on the school website for each Class to complete as their Tuesday learning. However, School will be closed to ALL pupils tomorrow.
Staff, however, will be in school preparing for the rest of the Lockdown. Through tomorrow we will prepare school to make it safe for Key worker pupils and vulnerable children to return.
We will send out a form for you to apply for a place in the Keyworker Bubbles and we will let you know more about how children will be learning remotely. We will do our very best to re-open to Key Worker children and vulnerable pupils by Wednesday.
I am aware of how difficult this is for you all, School closing creates a multitude of problems for everyone but data surrounding this awful disease dictates that this is a necessary step. As ever, the safety and health of everyone must be a priority.
Thank you for your continued support and we will be in frequent contact over the next few days.
