NEXT PTFA MEETING IS WEDNESDAY 16th OCTOBER, 6pm and FRIDAY 18th OCTOBER 9am

14th October 2019

What is a PTFA?

Parent, Teachers, Friends Association - A group of parents, staff and members of the school community organising events and fundraising activities to raise money to enhance children’s education.

Why have a PTFA?

Whilst PTFAs can help raise valuable funds they are about much, much more than fundraising. The PTA 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 can be fun too!

On Wednesday 16th October there will be no crèche facility available for children, therefore we have arranged an additional meeting on Friday 18th October for those who cannot attend the        evening meeting due to childcare commitments.

If you would like to be involved and cannot make either of the meetings, please inform the school and we will keep you informed.
