This page is for parents who have pupils at the school or would like to keep up-to-date with information. Here you will find our secure parents portal as well as information about the Pilgrims Parents group and how to get involved.

If you’d like to join the committee simply come along to our next meeting or email pilgrimsparents@gmail.com, we look forward to meeting you!

Want to help but have limited time?  Not a problem, simply put your contact details in the red post-box in reception and we’ll be in touch when we need an extra pair of hands.

Pilgrims parents

Shortly after Pilgrims School opened, Pilgrims Parents was founded by a group of enthusiastic mums and dads.  Since its inception in 2000, the PTA has raised 10’s of thousands for the benefit of the school facilities and chosen charities.

As well as organising events, we take responsibility for appointing class representatives, managing class lists, disseminating information to parents and organising rotas for help at events both big and small, from concerts to cake sales.

We also manage the design and production of the Year Book for all Year 2 children to keep as a memento of their time at Pilgrims.  The second-hand uniform sale is something we organise too and is a valued resource for parents (both buying and selling).

The Pilgrims’ Parents constitution

We have a constitution that states the three main aims that guide the group.  These are:

  • To encourage and develop strong, effective relationships amongst the parents and the school community
  • To support the school in the advancement of the educational experience of pupils through engaging activities or by providing facilities / equipment
  • To enjoy ourselves in the process!


We meet on a monthly basis and have a friendly and laid-back approach.  Meetings are kept to an hour and a half in length with the help of our agenda.  Children are always welcome so you don’t need to worry about childcare and we provide plenty of tea, coffee and cake to help productivity and creativity!

Meetings take place at 9:00 am in the school Dining Room.  We vary the day of the week each month to give as many parents as possible the chance to attend.
