St John Rigby Catholic Primary School

St John Rigby Catholic Primary School

St John Rigby benefits from a thriving, forward thinking and creative group of people (staff, parents and children) whose aim is to fundraise for the school in order to ensure our children have the best possible all-round experience whilst at St John Rigby - We like to think of us all as 'Friends of SJR'

At present, we do not have a parent group running and all fundraising is being managed by staff and pupil. If you are interested in starting a PTA and/or becoming a volunteer for the Friends of SJR please get in touch with the school. 

Here are just some examples of what has been previously contributed to the school:

  • Play equipment for both the KS1 and KS2 playgrounds as well as the Early Years outdoor areas.
  • A wide range of books (both fiction and non-fiction) for class librarys to raise the profile of Reading for Pleasure
  • Purchasing of brand new sports kits so that our sports teams are well-turned out at inter-school events.
  • Graduation gowns for Year 6 leavers.
  • Annual professional school pantomime for all pupils.

The PTA/Friends of St John Rigby is instrumental in bringing families together for many memorable community events. These include:

  • Summer Fair
  • Christmas Fair
  • Children’s Easter Raffle
  • Biannual Discos for all pupils
  • Leavers Graduation and Disco
  • PTA Children’s Fun Run
