What is the PTFA?

A very warm welcome to our Parent Teachers and Friends Association (PTFA).

Our School is very fortunate to have a thriving PTFA that has been an integral part of the school community for many years. All parents, carers, teachers and staff are automatically members of the PTFA.

Our main aims are:

  • To support the education of the children via fundraising and other activities.
  • To foster strong relationships between staff, parents and others associated with the school.

We host regular PTFA meetings at school (all Parents, Teachers and Friends of the school are very warmly welcomed) to discuss upcoming events and consider ideas for spending. If you are interested in becoming involved, or would just like to know more, please come along to any meeting, speak to one of the Committee or email one of the PTFA joint chairs via or or .

In addition, you can also contact us via:

Who are the PTFA? What are the roles?

Our PTFA Committee currently comprises 6 core members (Chair, Vice-Chair, Treasurer, Secretary,  and Social Secretary).

If you have any questions or ideas, please do get in touch with one of the committee members (see below), ask via your class teacher, or at the school office.
