We will be holding our AGM in school at 7pm on Wednesday 28th September – please do come along! There will be free refreshments and all are welcome, especially our new families. We will be planning for the new year and electing people into posts – all are up for grabs! The Friends of Naburn School play an important part in school, organising socials for parents and community, events for kids, and raining much-needed funds for school. Never has the school needed the PTA more, so please do try to make it!
