Shalfleet Church of England (V.C.) Primary School

Shalfleet School has an active FOSS (Friends of Shalfleet School) group. We fund raise throughout the year and hold many fun events for both the children and parents/carers. In the past, these have included quiz nights, children’s discos, beetle drives, cake sales and various fayres. The money raised through these events enable the school to benefit from extra equipment that they would otherwise not have. If you would like to join FOSS or have any ideas for fundraising, please do come along to one of our meetings, you would be very welcome – Check the school weekly newsletter for dates and times of events for you to come along and support and also for meetings.

Yarmouth Church of England (Aided) Primary School

The PTFA of Yarmouth School is an active group through which we bring together a combination of parents, staff, governors and other West Wight locals, who are interested in supporting the School and Pre-School within the community.

All parents are automatically members while their children are on the school roll. Activities include a variety of fund-raising events, informative evenings and generally giving assistance to the school as and when needed. The income raised is an important way of enhancing school resources, and we ask parents to support our functions as much as possible.

PTA- Our PTA at Yarmouth involves all our parent and teacher community, however our comitee is joint chairs Rachel Dunleavey and Lucy Temple, Treasurer, Debi Heather and we have our secretary Rachel Pearce. 

Over this spirng term 2022 we have provided snack shops, a gift stall for someone special ahead of Mothering Sunday, we had a film night and a wonderful disco donated by central disco. 

With these funds we paid for M&M productions to provide the children from year 1-6 with a pantomime experience. We have helped year R with their first school trip. We have paid for a new school roof for the outside shed as well as buying all children an Easter egg. We are just about to order picnic benches and play equipment following a request from year 6. 

We have a huge task ahead as we are about to start fundraising for new playground equipment and will be seeking the children’s opinions on what they would like to see at the new site. 

If anyone would like to have a more active role in the PTA or add their name as a volunteer for future events please see one of the committee members. 


The Randonnee is a yearly cycling event following a route around the Island (please see the map below).  The word Randonnee actually means ‘a long bike ride, usually over 100 miles’!  This event is very popular, in the past attracting over 3000 cyclists from all over the country!  This year, due to COVID, the event has been restricted to 2500 keen cyclists and all the places have already been allocated. 

For many years, Yarmouth CE Primary has been asked to act as a checkpoint for the participants, providing refreshments for the cyclists.  Each year this has raised thousands of pounds for our school, so it is a big fundraising event.

Last week’s Randonnee was a massive success & we raised almost £2000, which will go towards new play equipment for our new school. This event wouldn’t have been possible without the support & generosity of so many local businesses & people.

With that in mind, we would like to say a massive ‘thank you’ to the following people:
Freshwater Tesco Store for donating 300 bottles of water and their staff member Hazel who baked some rocky road to support the cake sales.
The Millar family for boiling and shelling over 100 eggs.
Leanne Jordan for baking what seems like hundreds of cakes at very short notice.
Dorset Tea for donating tea bags
Iceland & Aldi for suppling food & drinks
Warbartons for all of the bread rolls

A huge thank you to the Yarmouth PTFA, particularly Rachel Dunleavey for her efforts and support in this event.
Also to all of the staff and children that gave up their Friday evening, and Sunday to facilitate the event.
