CHAPTA are a group of volunteers, mainly parents, who support the school with events and fundraising to enhance the experiences of children at Chapelford Primary School. We really appreciate the support you have all given with money and items sent in to help us raise much needed funds. Now we are looking for volunteers to come in and help us work to raise further funds and put on events in school such as those in the letter below. Whatever time you can give would be very much appreciated. Please contact the school to let us know of any time and support you can offer. Many thanks.
