Parent Teacher Family Association

The PTFA (Parents, Teachers and Friends Association) is a registered charity and is run by parents and teachers, to raise money to benefit our children and enhance the school facilities.

In its time, the PTFA has raised thousands of pounds for new equipment and resources. We are a great link between home and school and brings staff, parents and friends together to support a common goal. We hold several meetings per term to organise, plan and facilitate events. All families are automatically members of the PTFA when their child joins school. The committee is made up of parents whose children attend school, but we are always happy to welcome new members and particularly new ideas. Fundraising can be challenging, but enormously rewarding when we see the final results.
