We are fortunate to have a very active PTFA that has been an integral part of the school community for many years. We have raised thousands of pounds, which has been spent on equipment and resources to enhance the children’s educational experience and the school’s facilities.
The PTFA is not just about fundraising. It also provides closer links between home and school, bringing staff, parents and friends together socially in support of the school, all working towards a common goal. All families are automatically members of the PTFA when their child joins our school and everyone is encouraged to get involved in any way they can.
Like most PTFAs, the majority of our funds are raised through events that we run. Some of our regular events include:
There is always something going on and it is great to see the children having fun at events or enjoying a piece of new equipment that the PTFA has donated. We also raise money in a variety of other ways and donations from parents are extremely important. Donations can take the form of time, money, food for events, raffle prizes or offers of services and skills – every donation counts.
Apply for Gift Aid – if either or both parents complete the Gift Aid declaration form your donations will be worth a lot more to us.
There are lots of ways you can help, we are always extremely grateful to receive any donations, ideas or offers of help.
We really couldn’t achieve what we do without the behind the scenes help of parents, teachers and friends.
Everyone is welcome to get involved in the PTFA. Each year we appoint 5 volunteer committee Officers to help run our fundraising activities.
There are regular PTFA meetings, usually twice a term, plus smaller working groups may be formed and meet more regularly when planning larger events. We also have a Pool Sub-committee who manage the running of the swimming pool during the summer term.
