‘Bring a Loved One to School’
What a wonderful week in school! The ‘Bring a Loved One to School’ event was a huge success. When we first thought about the idea, we didn’t imagine the wonderful response and number of bookings hence why the sessions had to be split. It was lovely to see adults and children enjoying a drink and snack whilst completing the loved one activity sheet and adding love heart post it notes to our wall display. This morning, children who could not attend the event on one of the afternoons also took part in the tasks and had a drink and sweet treat. We had lots of lovely feedback regarding the event. This is an event that will run year on year with plans already in place to make 2025 bigger and better. A huge thank you must go to Mrs Lambert and the kitchen staff for making the cakes and biscuits and for staying behind to support with service.


We are hoping to start on our OPAL Journey after the Christmas break. We are pleased to announce that our wonderful PTFA has bought some essential equipment for us. Scooterboards and helmets for the wheeled area, clamps and clips for den building, wellies for the digging area, brushes and rollers for the creative space and storage boxes to keep everything nice and neat.

Christmas Market

Our first Christmas Market was on Sunday 3rd December. Despite the wintery weather we had a lovely day. A  big thank you to the sellers and volunteers who made the day a success.!

Also a big "Well done" to two of our year 5 pupils who made and sold jewellery for charity. They raised a fantastic £112 which will be donated to McMillan and Shelter. 

Easy Fundraising

Cleadon Academy PTFA has signed up to easyfundraising, the UK’s biggest charity shopping site. Easyfundraising partners with over 7,000 brands who will donate part of what our supporters spend to the PTFA. This does not cost shoppers any extra as the cost is covered by the brand.

Quiz Night - 18th October 2023

Our first PTFA Family Quiz went down very well on Wednesday evening, with families competing to be the first ever recipients of the 'Champions Trophy!' Well done to team 'De Onoro' who totally smashed it!

 A huge thank you to everyone who helped out from setting up, serving snacks, making boat loads of delicious mushy peas,(Mr. Scott loved the green stuff so much he took enough home to feed a small army!) to marking sheets, tidying up and to the families who competed, you all contributed to making the evening a success!

Summer Social - Friday 14th July 2023

Our PTFA Summer Social was a huge success. Ducks were hooked, ice-cream was licked, rats were splatted and pizzas were cooked. 


Family Treasure Hunt - Friday 19th May 2023

We had glorious weather on the Friday afternoon for families to take part in our first PTFA Treasure Hunt. More than 50 teams took part. Thanks must go to our PTFA members and staff who helped to organise and run it. We're glad that everyone who participated enjoyed themselves.

Thank you for your ongoing support. 


Easter Discos! - April 2023
The Easter Discos were huge success. A particular highlight was Mrs Williamson and Mr Robb leading the 'Chu Chu Au' dance. Who knew they had such hidden talents? 
Thank you to the PTFA members who organised the event and to those who helped on the nights. 

Bingo Evening - March 2023

At the beginning of March we held a Bingo evening for parents and children. Mrs West and Mrs Pearson were amazing as our bingo callers and everyone had a fantastic evening. We raised nearly £800 to contribute towards our Daily Mile Track. Huge thanks to all the families that attended and all the people who gave up their time to make this such a successful event.

Christmas Fair - November 2022

On Thursday 24th November we held our Christmas Fair. It was lovely to see so many people attending and having fun after not being able to hold the event for several years. Thank you so much for your support and generosity both in donations and supporting the fair.

In total, we raised £4955.93, which is huge amount of money. This includes a matched funding amount from Barclays Bank. This amount added to previous fundraising by the PTFA means that we’ve almost hit the target for the Daily Mile running track.

22 for 22 Challenge - Autumn 2022

Our first fundraiser of this school year was The 22 for 22 Challenge. The children decided on their own challenges and gathered sponsorship from friends and family. This 22 day event raised just over £1000! Well done everyone!

Summer Fair - July 2022

We hosted our Summer Fair in July. Unfortunately the British weather was not kind to us to start with on the day. However, after a fairly frantic relocation to the hall, the event turned out to be a huge success! Thank you to everyone who came and support this event and also a big thank you to everyone involved in organising and running event. 

Queen's Jubilee - May 2022

In May we held a tea party to celebrate the Queen's Jubilee. We had lots of sweet treats, music, games and laughter. It was lovely to have so many members of the school community together to celebrate this historic occasion.
