Minutes of meetings
What is the PTFA?
PTFA stands for Parent, Teacher and Friends Association. We work together to support the education of the children and strengthening the school community. We do this by organising activities and events throughout the school year.
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.
What is the difference between committee and members?
The committee volunteer for specific roles and attend meetings for example treasurer or chair.
Members can be involved in meetings or specific events. We are always looking for help in organising and running events, even the odd hour or two helping out over the year makes a huge difference and is greatly appreciated.
The PTFA runs on a continuous cycle - as children reach their final year and leave, so do the parents. So, we constantly need new volunteers and new faces to ensure the PTA stays up and running – without parent support, there is no PTFA.
Why should I join?
Taking an active role with the PTA is beneficial for both parents and children but will particularly enhance your child's experience of school. The best bit about contributing to the PTA is the example it sets to your children. They will see you playing an active part in making their education more varied and getting involved illustrates good teamwork and community spirit. It has also been scientifically proven that children whose parents are involved in their education perform better academically. What have you got to lose?!

What will the funds be used for?
Our mission is to raise £10,000 over the next few years to fund some improvements to our outdoor space, creating an inspirational environment for our children to learn, be active and have fun. The PFTA will also continue to help fund trips, school activities and purchases throughout the year to benefit our children.
