Introduction to the PTFA
Our Parent, Teacher & Friends Association (PTFA) is a registered charity that works hard to raise money to benefit the children of our school. Its objective is to fundraise to further the education of our children through the purchase of resources for the school or to provide enrichment opportunities that the school could otherwise not afford.
The PTFA is run by parent volunteers who are part of a committee that is formed of Officer roles outlined below, and additional members who are regular helpers. The committee meets throughout the school year and welcomes everyone to be involved, whether they are able to attend meetings or not. The PTFA is a friendly, pro-active group of parents who are supportive of the school’s vision and want to make a difference to the children’s experience of school. Getting involved with the PTFA is a great way to meet parents from across the school and have some fun yourself!
The PTFA raises money by running a number of events throughout the year for children and families to enjoy, as well as including the wider community of Credenhill and beyond. The PTFA subsidises transport for school trips, provides a termly allowance per class per term for teachers to spend on additional items for their class, and is committed to the upkeep of ‘Jack’s Pirate Ship’ that all the children thoroughly enjoy.
The Governors and Headteacher value greatly the work of the PTFA and recognise that the money the PTFA raises makes a real difference to your children’s experience of our school.
If you would like to get involved and become a helper for events please do get in touch via the School Office on 01432 760408 or via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
