If you are unhappy about the way we do something.....come in and talk about it......we try to please the majority of parents/carers but 'one way' doesnt 'fit all' and we are happy to change our practice to make you and your childs lives better. We can be as flexible as possible but we cant 'mind read' !!!!! So please don't sit and 'simmer' the school has a good'listening ear' so come in and talk.
We have an active PTA – our ’Friends Association’.
All Parents/carers belong to 'Friends' The committee is always looking for new members who will help to organise, serve drinks, distribute Easter Eggs, run stalls, serve hotdogs etc etc !!
Friends work very hard throughout the year through social and fund raising activities to support and enhance the work at the school.
Friends is one of our links with the wider school community and you are welcome to join.

What is Cake Friday?
For those of you new to the concept, we run a monthly cake stall - usually the first Friday of each month - to raise funds for the enrichment of your child's education at Elstow. Homemade cakes are sold at 50p each / per slice and in the colder months (which seem to be almost upon us already!) we also sell hot chocolate with whipped cream and marshmallows, also at 50p. Buy one to keep you warm while you wait for those classroom doors to open or treat the kids at the end of the week!
The first stall will be run this Friday 6th October. You'll see us set up as you come in through the gates, outside Owls classroom from around 3pm - 3.45pm.
The next few Cake Fridays will be on 3rd November and 1st December. Look out for the board outside the school gates.
•Remember to bring your purse/wallet to school pick up on Friday - and get in quick before all the cakes get snapped up!
•Cake donations are most welcome if you are a baker (or want to get your kids into it!) - the more we have, the more we can sell! Please bring cake donations to the school office on Friday morning if possible, or directly to the stall at pick up time. Label any tins or tubs with your child's name & class and we will return them.
