The Dry Drayton
School & Village Association
Dry Drayton School does not have a conventional Parent Teacher Association. It has something far better -
The School and Village Association!
The Dry Drayton School and Village Association has now been running for over 30 years. Regular meetings are held to discuss its activities, which are largely to coordinate, promote and provide funding for the school and village.
The Big Forest School Fund!
We had a fantastic response to our fundraising appeal last year. We have now raised online and offline over £8,000 - passing our target!
We would like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to everyone in the village and beyond who contributed to this success. We have been amazed by the generosity shown. It has also been wonderful to see in these uncertain times so many people inspired to raise money through their own activities, such as fruit selling and crocheting. It feels as if these small acts brought our community further together at a time when we have been forced to stay physically apart.
The money raised has been passed to the school. It will pay in full for an outdoor classroom that will provide the school with additional space and allow the children to benefit from outdoor learning. We understand that designs have been agreed and construction should start shortly (Covid permitting). With the additional money raised, it has also been possible to contribute towards a Forest School shelter that will provide shelter for the children next to the school’s Forest School area. It is great to see that this shelter has already now been built at the bottom of the field in front of the wire fence.
Thank you again to everyone who contributed, raised funds, and helped make this possible. We look forward to seeing the children enjoy their new facilities when back at school.
Dry Drayton School does not have a conventional Parent Teacher Association. It has something far better: The School and Village Association, a Registered Charity (No 268765), that is designed to support and serve both the village and local school.
The Dry Drayton School and Village Association has now been running for over 30 years. Regular meetings are held to discuss its activities, which are largely to coordinate, promote and provide funding for the school and village. In addition, the S&VA organises the monthly Village Newsletter and the Marquee Project.
