Parent, Teacher & Friends Association (PTFA)

Welcome to the 'Friends' page. 


The Friends (Parent, Teacher & Friends Association), is a group of Parents, members of the Community, Governors and Staff who come together to help raise funds and support the School to help make the school the best it can be. 

 

Our main objective is to advance the education of the pupils in the School by providing and assisting in the provision of facilities for education at the school (not normally provided by the Local Education Authority).

    Who are we?

     

    We are all volunteers that care about our children's education and helping to enrich their school experience. Some of the benefits of volunteering are:

     

    • Improve the school’s facilities, community spirit and partnership with parents
    • Socialise and get to know each other whilst taking part in a range of activities
    • Find out more about how the school works, developing effective partnerships with the teaching and non-teaching staff
    • Fundraise for extra items or services to enrich the children’s education
    • Increase your own knowledge and skills
    • Give those with a parenting role a voice in education
