Our PTFA have devoted much of their spare time to raise funds for the school through a series of fun activities and events that have involved the whole village community.
Enormous amounts have been raised thanks to the support from parents, families, teachers and friends of the school. In recent years, the PTFA have managed to purchase the following:
· Tablet computers for use in the classrooms
· Our Outdoor Classroom
· Projectors and Whiteboards for all classrooms
· Books for our Year 6 Leavers
Plants, materials and manpower for our annual Groundforce event
The PTFA are currently raising money to update the Adventure Playground for our children.
At most schools all parents/carers and staff are automatically members of the PTFA.
PTFA’s hold their annual general meetings during the school year. At this meeting a committee is elected to run the PTFA – usually consisting of a chair, a vice-chair, a treasurer, a secretary and ordinary committee members. These ordinary members include at least one, and often two, parents from each class as ‘class reps’. Their job is to pass on information from the PTFA to other parents in their child’s class. PTFA committees usually meet once a term and set up smaller working groups to organise individual events.
