Parent & Family Association (PFA)
Are you a parent or carer of a child that attends Huish Episcopi Primary School or are you a volunteer who has links with the school?
If so why not join the PFA? The PFA is an organisation run solely by parents and volunteers to raise money for the school. To join click here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/884897964932912/
Money raised goes towards providing materials, resources and facilities which benefit every child that attends the school.
Events organised by the school enhance the school community but also provide much needed funds!
The activities help to bring together parents and children and promote good communication between staff and parents as we jointly work towards common goals.

On the back of each ticket along with pick up information we have a permission slip for photos – this MUST be signed and bought along to the disco.
Please remember that Reception Children must accompanied by a parent/carer for the whole of the event.
We will be operating a one way system: drop off at the main doors at front of the hall and pick up from the back of the hall.
We will be selling snacks (crisps and sweets) for between 20p-50p. Please send your child with a drinks bottle for FREE squash refills.
We really need some volunteers for the night: helpers to set up before the event and/or clear up at the end of the evening, sweetie sellers, squash monitors and friendly door staff!
