Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Friends of OA Pinewood

When it comes to fundraising, building relationships with the community and supporting the staff team, being involved with the Pinewood Friends is one of the best ways for parents and carers to get involved with Academy life. There are simple opportunities throughout the year to support Academy events and support the students.

This is a group of parents and friends of Pinewood, who work tirelessly to deliver family events and outside activities for the Academy. They meet monthly to arrange events such as school discos, Christmas and Summer Fetes, charity coffee mornings, Mother’s/Father’s Day sales, and graduation parties for the Year 6 pupils. Over the last 5 years they have raised over £6,000 for the school which has been used to develop the outdoor play equipment in the infant and junior playgrounds. Donated £1000 to support the Accelerated Reader scheme, and more recently helped purchase the kit for the girls’ and boys’ football teams. If you would like further details about how to get involved then please contact us at the e-mail address below or leave a message in the school office and we will get back to you. 

The Friends Commitee is as follows :

Chair : Tracey Chandler

Vice Chair : Laura Goff

Treasurer : Sarah Levis

Secretary : Jan Norris

We understand the importance of having our parents and carers involved in shaping events and programmes at our Academy, therefore we are always looking for new members of our PTA.
