Around 500 people visited the fair on Saturday at the school and there were several market stalls selling jewellery, cakes, crafts and food for them to enjoy.

There was also a competition to guess the weight of a Christmas cake, a tombola and a chance to meet Santa.

Julie Oddy, from the Parents Forum, said the fair was held to promote the school and to celebrate the improved relationship between the school and the parents.

“The Parents Forum has been going for about 12 months and it’s been excellent,” she said.

“Park Lane Learning Trust is a good school to go to and it’s going to be an outstanding school in the next few years. It just got its best GCSE results and there’s a lot to be positive about.

“The headteacher, Mr Taylor, has been really good at getting the parents involved and the Parents Forum meet him and the other teachers every month. The school has got a great atmosphere now.

“The Parents Forum appointed a Christmas Committee who organised the event in connection with the school and it was a really successful day,” Julie said.
