PTA Summer Fete 2021

What is it? A mini summer fete fun for the children; including many of the usual stalls such as sweet and teddy tombolas, arts and crafts station, sports and games station, ric a brac, traditional fete games such as hook a duck.

When is it? Monday 12th and Tuesday 13th July (Weds 14th poor weather back up), in school time.

Why? To give the children some semi-normal fun after all the trials of this year. They know it's happening and are very excited already!

How will it work? Every year group will get an allocated time slot to enjoy the activities & each child given a number of tokens to "spend" at the stalls as they wish. We will seek donations from parents in due course but no child will be excluded.


Can you help:

- plan and run the arts/crafts stall, the sports stand or the toy raffle - either leading or working as a small team with other volunteers - perhaps you have a group of friends who can get together to run one?,

- help set up on Sunday 11th July,

- man a stall on 12th or 13th, either in the morning: 9-1pm or afternoon: 1-3pm

- tidy up on both 12th or 13th from 3-4pm (your children can play in the school playground if necessary).

If you're able to help, please email Sara specifying when/how:


To ensure we can run the usual stalls that the children love (tomolas of sweets, toys and teddies), we are looking for donations of the following items:

· Individually wrapped Sweets (e.g. Starburst, Maom etc); NO NUTS please.

· Good quality, clean Soft Toys and Teddies

· Good quality used DVDs (U or PG) and Childrens Books

· Toys and Games that are brand new and/or nearly new or in good working order

There will be Donation Bins at each entrance to the school at MORNING DROP OFF every day next week - Tuesday 22nd to Friday 25th June.


For your continued support to the school and the PTA. We do appreciate that this is very short notice & our requests just keep coming (don't's the summer hols soon!) but we would hugely appreciate any donations or time you're able to offer to help make this a success for the children.

We can’t really believe it’s the last term of the year either but here we are! We thought we’d use the blog this week to tell you about the plans for this term and some recent funding commitments that we have agreed with the school.

There are 3 main things happening this term that you need to know about:


This is a popular activity whereby the children draw self-portraits which the PTA miraculously turn into bespoke tea towels for each year group. You can BUY NOW on the EVENTS PAGE of this website. Sale ends until 18th June and they will be given to your child by the end of term. One tea towel is £4 or you can get 3 for £10.


Roll up! Roll up! For Claremont’s first ever Covid-secure in-school children-only summer fete! We will be planning some of the usual summer fete activities for the children in the last week of term. Each year group will get a dedicated time slot to visit the summer fete on either 12th or 13th July. More information will follow how you can donate to support this event. We would also love MORE VOLUNTEERS to help plan and run the event so if you’re able to help, however small or large, please email .

3. ONLINE SECOND HAND UNIFORM SALES - Back by popular demand!

Donation mornings: 28th June & 20th July, School field, Banner Farm Rd.

Online sales: 3rd/4th July (for collection 8th July) and 4th/5th September (for collection 9th Sept).

Please save the dates & check our website and social media for more details.


This year, the PTA has committed £16,773 to the school:

- £15,000 for critical I.T. provision.

- £1,400 “classroom contribution” so each class teacher has £100 they can spend as they need to, on items for their classroom.

- £361 subsidy for the Year 6 year book.

- £12 emergency provisions from the Year 6 trip.

We couldn’t have done this without you so THANK YOU for your continued support!

This week the PTA have been busy putting the finishing touches to its first ever online auction! We have heaps of exciting lots for you to bid for including Dinner for 4 with prosecco at the Lodge, a £200 voucher for The Lyle restaurant and an £80 voucher for SW1 Hair. It'll be going live on Wednesday 26th May so keep an eye out for the link next week.

Our next 2nd hand uniform sale goes live tomorrow at 8am until 8pm Sunday 23rd. If you missed out last time there's plenty of good quality summer uniform but stock does get allocated on a first come first served basis so get in early to avoid any disappointment! The uniform page will open here on the website at 8am tomorrow for you to to place your order.

Huge thanks to everyone who braved the elements and supported the family 5k last week. It raised a whopping £2,300 from ticket sales and sponsorship combined! Congratulations to Oscar in Acorns whose family won the picnic hamper donated by our sponsors Batchellor Monkhouse.

Remember all monies raised this year are going towards I.T. provision & the new outdoor classroom.

The PTA Committee met this week and discussed our plans for Term 6. This will include selling tea towels designed by the children and a mini summer fete within school for the children to enjoy within their year groups. We will also have a virtual raffle with some fabulous prizes to be won!

Our Secretary position remains vacant - if you think you might be interested please email Claire at to find out more.

Thanks as always for your support.

Claire and the PTA Team! x
