Aims and Objectives
- To enrich the education of pupils at the School by providing and assisting in the provision of facilities for education not normally provided by the Local Education Authority.
- To foster closer relationships between the parents or guardians of pupils of the School.
- To engage in activities which support the School and promote the welfare of the pupils attending it, including raising funds.
- Our mission statement is to assist in cultivating a happy, thriving school community for our children to belong to, by means of organising fun(d)raising events.
- It holds a non-critical role towards the School;
- It can make collective decisions only; individual PTFA have no decision making powers and the minutes of the meetings are binding, legal documents;
- It has no power to alter a fundraising destination once funds have been raised for a specific purpose – therefore it raises funds for general spending on school-life-enhancing projects only and allocates funds after raising them;
- It will hold a single account;
- It will communicate with the school offices via two people only, currently the PTFA Secretary and Chair, specifically but not exclusively with regards to newsletter and other school communications.
Once a term we hold second hand uniform sales and we are always looking for donations and volunteers to help us.
Everybody can get involved with raising funds for our school from the comfort of your own home and sofa.
