The Parents and Friends Association (Known as PFA) is run by a small group of volunteers whose aim is to raise additional funds for the school. The majority of the members are parents but anybody, who has a keen interest in enhancing the opportunities available to the children, is very welcome to join.
There are numerous fundraising and social events throughout the year which are organised by the PFA. These events provide an opportunity to support the school and enhance the link between the families at the school and the local community.
In recent years the PFA has organised the summer BBQ, movie nights. ice cream stall and summer fair, raising much needed funds for your children.
The PFA is currently run by a small group of parents and friends of the school. The PFA is totally flexible giving up just 30 minutes of your time to help the PFA is invaluable. If everyone could spare 30 minutes a term to help, just think what we could achieve! You don’t have to attend PFA meetings – you can use our contact details to send in ideas for discussion.
Joining the PFA is a good opportunity to feel more connected to other parents and the school, every PFA event is an opportunity to meet other parents in the same situation as you. There’s no better way to know what events are being planned, have your say or make new fundraising suggestions, than by offering your help and support.
There are lots of myths around the PFA so to answer some of these please find herewith a quick guide. The main myth being, The PFA is just for Moms! It’s important to our PFA, our school and our children to have dads represented on our committee and to help reach out to other dads, are you a dad with a skill that would come in useful? It’s Fun! See the smiles on your children’s faces and know that you have played a part in making school a little more fun and helped raise vital funds!
If you would like to get involved and we are really hoping you will, you can either say hello on the playground, contact the school to express your interest or attend a meeting. Alternatively, Mrs Attwood has been an invaluable member of the PFA for many years and will be happy to help you.
