We gave the Year 6 Leaver's their hoodies this morning and they were extremely excited. We wish them all the best of luck for the future, they are all amazing children!

BA Helping Hands is a registered charity with 3 trustees representing their members:

  • Lindsay watson, Chair
  • Kate Murray, Secretary
  • Nicola Taylor, Treasurer

We having a thriving membership of Parents and Friends who support our fundraising ideas and get involved with a variety of events and fundraising activities throughout the school year. If you are not a member, please email for a membership form or ask at the school office. It is a simple form, but due to the constraints of GDPR and the requirements of the Charities Commission, we do need you to complete this information with a signature. We only hold on file email addresses and telephone numbers.

Additionally, we also have “Year Representatives” for each year group. The idea of this role is to enable better communication and a more personal connection between Helping Hands and parents within each year group. Parents and friends directly involved with each year group on a day to day basis have the opportunity to speak to someone they know well with their views, ideas and suggestions. Our current Year Representatives are:

  • Reception Nicola Taylor
  • Year 1 Karla Tindell-Riley
  • Year 2 Rita Reid
  • Year 3 Michelle Radi
  • Year 4 Kate Murray
  • Year 5 Louise Bird
  • Year 6 Nicki Sowden

If you would like to get involved with Helping Hands fundraising in any way, please contact the trustees at helpinghandspfa@gmail.com.

We’d be happy to hear from you!
