PTFA - Parents, Teachers and Friends Association
A very, very warm welcome to our school.
These pages have been written by our PTFA especially for you, as a new family within our school community. We realise it can be strange and a little nerve-wracking joining a school, and there always seems to be so many questions to ask! The pages aim to set out all the information you will need about our Parent Teacher and Friends Association , which is a big part of our school life.
If after having read it (and we apologise for the length, but there is so much to tell you!) you have any questions, please do get in touch with one of the committee members, or ask via your class teacher, or the school office.
Why do we have a PTFA?
We are very fortunate at our school to have a PTFA that is and has been such an integral part of the school community for many years. In its time the PTFA has raised many thousands of pounds, which have been spent on improving equipment and resources to enhance our children’s education and the facilities in school in general.
But it is much, much more than just fundraising. The PTFA exists to provide closer links between home and school, and it is an excellent way to bring staff, parents and friends together socially in support of the school working towards a common goal. And it’s fun! Just ask any of the PTFA Committee or helpers. Obviously as in any organisation, there are times when it is more ‘challenging’, but with the continued support of parents and staff, our PTFA has always succeeded in its efforts.
All parents and members of the school community can get involved if they want to, even if they only have a small amount of time available, and all parents are automatically members of the Association when they join our school.
The PTFA is extremely conscious of the ethos and morals of our school, and we try very hard when organising and planning events to respect this. Not all of our events are run as fundraisers. Our children’s discos are run with the aim of giving the children a good time and as a way of thanking families for their continued support to the PTFA.
Please find below the official minutes of PTFA meetings along with letters concerning recent PTFA events. Should you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact us via the school office or like us on our facebook page to keep up to date with all of our latest fundraising activities:
