Parent Community

Welcome to our Parent Community which is open to all parents and friends of the school. Our PTA, Friends of Manby Lodge, organise fun events for our children and social events for parents and carers. They also raise money to provide valuable extra funding for school projects. Examples from this year include: Buddy Benches/ Buddy Bus Stops, learning resources, classroom experiences such as ZooLab, School Councillor hats/ badges, 25% towards all school trips and more to come. Most recently Friends of Manby Lodge have raised funds to provide a noticeboard in the playground so parents have access to a variety of information communicated by the school.
