Pilgrims Parents

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 parent’s portal as well as information about the Pilgrims Parents group and how to get involved.

If you’d like to get more involved you can do this through contacting your Class Rep, emailing us at parents@pilgrims-school.org.uk or simply putting your contact details in the red post-box in school reception, we would love to hear from you.

We are always grateful for support from parents and carers as part of our volunteer community, and to help us run events for Pilgrims children and the school.

Pilgrims parents

Pilgrims Parents was founded by a group of enthusiastic mums and dads in 2000. Since then, we’ve raised tens of thousands for the benefit of Pilgrims children – funding enhanced school facilities such as the hard-court area, play equipment, school piano and reading scheme books – as well as raising funds for the school’s chosen charities.

Some of the beloved events Pilgrims Parents organises include the annual fireworks, cinema nights, Spring Fayre, Summer BBQ and second-hand uniform sales. We also work alongside the school to filter information to parents and organise rotas for helping at school events both big and small.

You can stay connected with Pilgrims Parents a number of ways; our monthly Pilgrims Parents Meetings, ‘Pilgrims Parents Weekly’ email, Pilgrims Parents Facebook Group and regular updates from your Class Rep and class WhatsApp group.


Everyone from Baby Room to Year 2 is welcome to attend our Pilgrims Parents monthly meetings which take place in the school dining room.

We currently alternate these monthly meetings between Friday mornings from 8.50am – 10.00am and Thursday evenings from 7.00pm – 8.30pm, to give as many parents or carers the chance to attend, join in and get involved. Tea/ coffee and biscuits always provided!

second hand uniform shop

Our second-hand uniform shop is run by a team of volunteers from the school community.  We help to recycle all pre-loved items, reducing our community impact on the planet with all proceeds going back into school via Pilgrims Parents and unsold items going to outreach schools in Africa and India. It’s an opportunity to get discounted Uniform for children in Kindergarten, Preschool and Main School – everything from shirts and jumpers to dresses, blazers, socks and ties!

The Uniform Shop opens frequently throughout the year, usually on Friday mornings and some Saturday mornings as well so that everyone is able to pop in.

Last year we also introduced a recycle scheme for pre-loved Nativity clothing and Christmas Jumpers to continue our sustainable approach.
