Parent, Teachers and Friends Association (PTFA)
We are very fortunate at our School to have a PTFA Committee that is, and has been, such an integral part of the school community for a number of years. In its time, the PTFA has raised thousands of pounds which have been spent on improving equipment and resources to enhance our children's education and the facilities in school in general. But our PTFA is about more than just fundraising.
It exists to provide closer links between home and school, and it is an excellent way to bring staff, parents and friends together socially in support of the school, working towards a common goal. It is fun too - just ask any of the PTFA committee members or helpers. Obviously as in any organisation there are times when it is more ‘challenging', but with the continued support of parents and staff, our PTFA has always succeeded in its efforts.
All parents and members of the school community can get involved if they want to, even if they only have a small amount of time available, and all parents are automatically members of the Committee when their children join our school.
The PTFA is extremely conscious of the ethos and diversity of our school and we try very hard when organising and planning events to respect this. We also aim to give the children a good time, as a way of thanking families for their continued support.
Throughout the year the PTFA hold three main events - the Christmas Fayre, the Easter Fayre and our biggest fundraising event, our Summer Fayre. Over the academic year the PTFA raises around £4,000 for our school funds.
With the funds the PTFA have raised, climbing walls for children in both KS1 and KS2 were purchased, as well as low rise climbing equipment, trim trail and outdoor gym equipment.
Voting for Chair and Vice Chair for 23-24.
As a result of the recent PTFA election for positions within the PTFA, the votes were counted at the school on Thursday 19th October 2023. We are pleased to announce the following:
- PTFA Chair: Luz Marquina
- PTFA Vice Chair: Stacey Subebe
Thank you to all those who put their names forward and congratulations to those who have been elected to the committee.
The remaining roles which did not require an election will be taken by the following people:
- Treasurer: Omaria Dillon
- Vice Treasurer: Rosie Gannon
- Communication Officer: Justyna John/Cornelia Jupe (Shared role)
The appointments of all new committee members will be ratified at an Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM), which will be held shortly after half term in the school hall at 1:45 on the 3rd November.
All parents, teachers and friends are invited to attend. Details for a remote attendance will be circulated after half term.

IQ Cards Christmas Fundraiser 2023
This term we are delighted to be participating in the Christmas fundraiser with IQ Cards. The funds that we raise through your purchases will be used to go towards events for the children, or towards subsidising the cost of events, so parents are not asked to contribute as much money.
Last year your purchases came to a fantastic £1251.50.
IQ Cards can print your child’s design onto high quality Stationery including Greeting Cards, Postcards, Gift Wrap &, Sticky Gift Labels. Also, some fun and affordable gifts: Fridge Magnets& Keyrings.
Your child’s name will be printed onto all the products for that personal touch! Please see below link for more information.
The PTFA have been given an opportunity to take part in Easyfundraising which raises money for good causes, ours being the PTFA.
Easyfundraising is an entirely free service that allows people to shop directly at their favourite online store via the links on the easyfundraising.org.uk website and raise a donation for their school cause once a purchase is made.
Donations can be up to 15% of the value of your purchase, depending on the retailer and the item purchased.
To get started, all you need to do is download the helpful Donation Reminder and mobile app so that you never forget to collect a free donation.
The link is below.
Thank you for supporting this scheme.
