Parent Teacher Association
WHAT IS THE PTFA?
The PTFA means Parent, Teacher & Friends Association and is an organisation including all parents and staff. Its role is to encourage closer links between home and school. Fundraising events provide an opportunity for parents, staff and pupils to get together.
HOW IS MONEY RAISED?
We raise money through events, such as the Discos, Cinema Nights & the Christmas Fair. We are always looking for new fundraising ideas – so please let us know any ideas or help you can give us.
HOW IS THE MONEY SPENT?
Funds raised by the PTFA are intended to provide `extras’ not already provided by the school’s main income, to further enhance pupils’ learning.
The PTFA committee and the head teacher and staff decide how to spend PTFA funds. Common items include computers, playground equipment, towards the school library or for smaller purchases such as books and arts & crafts equipment. You can be involved in these decisions.
HOW CAN I BE INVOLVED IN MY PTFA?
There are many different ways you can help with the PTFA, whether you have lots of time to offer or not.
Some of the roles are time-consuming, although also rewarding. If you can’t commit to a big job, look out for things you can do less frequently (e.g. running a stall at the Christmas fair, baking for a cake sale, serving tea/coffee etc…at schools discos or other events). And you can always support PTFA events by simply turning up!
