The Parent, Teacher and Friends Association (PTFA) includes all parents, carers, teachers and friends of the school.

The PTFA organises fund raising, social activities and events like the Summer and Christmas Fairs, discos, cake sales, Christmas cards, Easter chocolate hampers and Quiz Night.  Our aim is to raise funds to support both larger and smaller school activities whilst bringing some enjoyment and fun to parents, staff and children!  

In the past couple of years, we have:

  • Raised money for the new yurt, 'The Nook'.
  • Raised money for new non-fiction books in the library and new phonics books for Reception.
  • Given each year money to support with educational visits off site.


Code of Conduct

The PTFA is an important part of the school and we make very valuable contributions both financially and in terms of time invested by parents, staff and friends.  Much of what we do is organised through our Facebook page.  We have a Code of Conduct that we expect everyone to agree to. It protects and respects everybody.



This groups are for parents and carers to be sharers!  We help one another, we look after everyone, we have fun and we care.  Please treat everyone with respect, we come from different backgrounds with different beliefs and views.  

  • Do not judge, be considerate, don’t bully or degrade anyone either in or outside the group for whatever reason.  
  • Please DO post things that are relevant to the group, that will help make the day easier for us and our children, and that are relevant to your class.  
  •  Please DO NOT spam, become militant, rude, or nasty.  Consider if what you’re going to say is really suitable.  
  • Please be kind and look after one another.

The groups are not for venting or moaning about the school, about teachers, parents, or children!  

  • If you have an issue with something that is happening at the school, that the school may have said, done, or presented, about a member of staff, a parent or another child, do not take to the group to vent your frustration!  
  • Talk to the school – they would much rather know your feelings directly!  If you see others doing this, politely remind them, that this isn’t the forum for it.  We all get frustrated sometimes but there’s a better way of dealing with things!  
  • To talk to your teacher or to request they call you email and include the teacher’s name in the subject.
