What is the PTFA?

The PTFA is a group of people who each year organise fund raising events to raise money to buy items for the school. These items are unfortunately not feasibly in their budget. These purchases aim to benefit all the children in the school. 

Dates for Your Diary

The final PTFA event this term will be a Christmas Disco for the children on Wednesday December 19th.  The timings as follows:

Reception, Year 1 and Year 2       3.15pm – 3.55pm

Year 3 and Year 4                          4.00pm – 4.55pm

Year 5 and Year 6                          5.00pm – 6.00pm

The children will be treated to all sorts of festive fun including games, dance offs, face painting, popcorn, squash and crisps all for the price of £2.

Achievements

Thank-you for purchasing your child’s Christmas card design. As a result, the PTFA have raised a further £359.25 and along with all the others successful events this term, the school has been able to buy a complete PA and sound system suitable for indoor and outdoor events on grand scale. Thank-you!

The Halloween games and fun event raised an amazing £620. The Kyson Firework Display was another triumph and raised a staggering £1,638.

A very big thank-you to the parents who worked so hard in the organisation beforehand and also during the events. A great time was had by all!

Our Summer Fair raised the truly amazing sum of ................ £9,526.61! The school has
some exciting plans for spending this wonderful sum. 

In previous years the PTFA's fundraising has enabled the children to benefit from:

  • Kyson sports kit for two teams
  • 6 coloured picnic tables and game tops
  • Short tennis equipment for two classes
  • 2 Flexiscopes (microscopes that link to computers)
  • Keyboard and stand for Mrs Rea
  • “LegoWeDo” (programmable Lego kits)
  • Leaving gifts for the Y6 children 
  • 15 i-pads and trolley
  • Outdoor table tennis table
