The school and the home are a partnership. We have an active Home School Association [HSA] at Gresford who organise educational and social events with the emphasis on fund raising. All parents are automatically members of the HSA. Your support is vital if we are to supply essential equipment for our children. Any offers of help whether it is your skills, your time, or your efforts towards fund raising will be warmly appreciated.
Parents are also invited to assist staff in the classroom and are involved in activities such as cookery, art and craft, technology, IT, making of costumes and scenery etc. Each parent must complete the Registration of Voluntary Helpers in School Document, which is sent to the LEA for vetting purposes.
Regular features of the school year are social functions including Christmas festivities, St David’s Day Eisteddfod and Sports Day.
The school enjoys close links with All Saints’ Parish Church. The vicar is a regular visitor at school and leads collective worship each Thursday. The pupils visit Church for many festivals – Harvest, Christmas, Ash Wednesday and Ascension Day. The children are encouraged to attend the Family Service held each month, and attendance is excellent.
School makes a number of visits into the community during the school year, entertaining Senior Citizens and joining with the Rofft Primary School in November at Gresford Methodist Church for the Peace Service. Gresford is used as a resource, particularly its lake and quarry.
