We held our Autumn Fair on Friday 17th November 2017. It was a fantastic event with lots of stalls with lovely items to buy and games to play! Each class organised their own stalls and the children helped run them; lots of born sales-people. 😁
The event raised a fantastic £585!! 😄😄 So we would like to send out a massive THANK YOU to everyone who visited our fair, or supported it in some way. Here are some pictures of the older children enjoying the fair before it opened to parents at 3.30pm.
Yes, it's that time again - Friday 16th June 2017!
F1/2 & KS1 = 3.45pm - 4.45pm
KS2 = 5pm - 6pm
Tickets just £1.00 available from the school office. Hot dogs, drinks, sweets, crisps will be on sale...and, of course, our world famous raffle!
Everything you need for a great evening!
Get your tickets & your dancing shoes on!!
Family Bingo Night!!
Our Family Bingo Night was a great success, with everyone winning lots of prizes and having a brilliant time! We appreciate your support at our events and the lovely atmosphere they create. We raised about £170, which will go into the PTA fund to buy extra things for our children in school.
If you have any suggestions for the PTA please get in touch, or better still why not offer a few hours of your time to join us in organising and running events!
Keep your eyes peeled for the next event...
Our AGM will be held on Thursday 19th January at 7.30pm in the Crown pub, Awsworth. Please come along if you would like to get involved in our activities.
Hope to see you there!

Latest News and Events!
The Hobgoblin Theatre group visited KS1 & 2 children on Thursday 20th October. It was a very funny performance and the children found out more about William Shakespeare and the Tudors in an action-packed show. Donations from parents totalled £95 so the remainder of the cost was paid by the PTA. Thank you to those who contributed.
'Back to school' discos
Our 'Back To School' discos on Friday 16th September were very busy and lots of fun!
We took an incredible £890 on the night!
This is a fantastic amount so we would like to say a massive 'THANK YOU' to everyone who supported us.

We are always looking for ideas on which to spend the funds raised by the PTA. We aim to spread any spending evenly across the school so that all children benefit from a range of fun activities and equipment. Below is a list of the main PTA purchases from the last academic year:
If you have any suggestions for future use of the PTA funds, then please let us know either via the school office, or through our Facebook page.
We look forward to hearing from you!
Welcome to the Friends of Awsworth
Primary & Nursery School!
We are a group of parents, carers and school staff who organise a wide variety of fund raising events for the children in school.
‘The Friends’ was formed in March 2010 and our programme of events has steadily grown since then.
Our aim is to come up with ideas that are fun and exciting for both children and adults to enjoy. In doing so, and with the on-going support from parents, we are able to raise money which benefits all the children at Awsworth.
Here are some of our past events
During the year we keep parents/carers informed of our events diary and share how our fund raising is used to support the school. Many parents now follow us on Facebook too!
Some examples of how funds are spent
· Playtime games and equipment for use on the playground
· Outdoor play equipment for the Foundation Unit
· Easter eggs for the whole school
· Funding theatre groups and visiting authors and illustrators
· Souvenir photo books for Year 6 leavers
· Magic show for Foundation children
· Souvenir coins to celebrate the Queen’s Silver Jubliee
· Bikes, scooters and helmets for our Foundation children
· To name just a few…!
All of the above has only been achieved with the support, enthusiasm and generosity of our parents/carers and school management, which we are so grateful for.
The friends of Awsworth Primary and Nursery School are always ready to welcome new ideas, new members or simply offers of help from anyone who would like to support us during a specific event.
