Arts Week 21st-25th May


This year our theme for arts week is ‘Nature’, where we will be creating lots of colourful and creative pieces to display at the Priory. This is a great opportunity for children to experience the arts through a range of fun activities that will involve craft, painting, music, dance and drama. If you would like to get involved or help out during the week, please get in touch with the office.

Play equipment for the children

The Traversing Wall is finally in place and the children are enjoying the challenge of traversing across the wall.

This was a large spend item and funds were raised from many FPS events, so thanks to everyone that comes along, helps with the events and spends money, this is how the money is put to good use.

The colourful flower chalk boards are also regularly used in the KS1 playground, along with the play sheds, which are full of play equipment, such hula hoops, footballs, skipping ropes and more.

Your money makes a difference, so please keep supporting the FPS events.


Summer Fayre Celebration

Thank you to everyone who helped, came along and enjoyed the Summer Fayre celebrating 150 years of The Priory School

We raised over £3,500 for much needed outdoor play equipment for the children.

We have already managed to purchase this year:

  1. Goalposts
  2. Table tennis table
  3. KS1 and KS2 outdoor sheds with lunchtime play equipment

Our spending plans for the rest of this year are:

  • Traversing wall
  • Playtrail
  • New Welcome path and playground markings
  • Coloured canopy outside Class 1
  • Playhouse for EYFS

Please continue to help us raise the money to buy the above equipment to ensure our children have a great educational experience.


Summer Ball tickets Thursday 13th July £6





Two teams from Priory School swam in the Round Table Swimafun at Two Riversmeet last Saturday to raise funds for the Round Table and FPS.

The teams did really well and completed over 150 lengths between them, the age ranged from 5 years to slightly over 30! with three mums taking part as well.

Over £400 was raised.



Ideas Social

The FPS held an Ideas social in late January to inform parents/carers of the school funding and why the FPS raise money for the school.

We will shortly be publishing the output from the meeting, so you can see what was said, what ideas were generated and how the FPS along with the school/parents/carers/children decides how the money will be best used and spent.

Over 35 parents/carers attended.

We will also be holding another one next term and do hope you will be able to come along and participate

thank you

Thank you to those who helped on the night and made this such a successful event, which we will be repeating next term.
