The progressive evolution of Dame Dorothy Primary School and Daycare runs deep within the framework of all aspects of school. Whereas many schools have a PTA (Parent/Teacher Association), we knew that here, at Dame Dorothy, we could do better. Over the last year the PTA has regenerated in to registered charity called Friends of Dame Dorothy.
Friends of Dame Dorothy launched with a renewed vigour determined to expand on well established relationships offering the parents of Dame Dorothy an active voice in the future of the school as well as increased participation in fundraising activities for the benefit of the children.
Friends of Dame Dorothy host regular events such as Christmas Discos and Summer Fayres along with a myriad of events and good deeds such as Macmillan coffee mornings where money raised is given to a good cause, for the benefit of the community, not just the school.
Community and family has always been at the centre of the school and nothing reflects this more than the important work carried out by the dedicated and hardworking Friends of Dame Dorothy which makes every opportunity fun and inspiring.
If you wish to play a part of Friends of Dame Dorothy, and no part can be too big or small, please speak to School Reception who will be pleased to share with you further information and times of future meetings.
