The Parents, Teachers And Friends Association
The PTFA is an important part of our school. It raises money, brings parents, friends and teachers together and helps everyone work collaboratively for the benefit of the school.
The PTFA is open to every parent, grandparent or just friend of the school and meets twice a term on average. Each meeting has an agenda and lasts approximately an hour, where we discuss ideas for raising money and also social events for our children.
Over the past few years, we have raised several thousand pounds and funded a whole new reading scheme for Lower School. We have also purchased 15 laptops with a trolley and colour printer and paid for the Jubilee Garden to be re-landscaped. In addition we have paid for coach trips for the children to a pantomime at Christmas and bought presents for the children in the Lower School.
We organise several events each year, including the Christmas and Summer Fayres, Year 6 Leavers' Disco, discos, film nights, Tea with Santa and Upper School Christmas crafts.
As you can see we do an important job that helps make this school that little bit more special. Why not come along to one of our meetings if you have the same desire we have - to give our children the best start in life? We would be absolutely delighted to welcome any new members.
If you are interested in joining us, even to help out at one event, please contact the school office.
