Welcome to the Parents Friends Association
WHAT IS THE P.F.A…. AND WHY SHOULD I HELP?
The Parent and Friends Association is here to raise funds to help the school enrich the learning experiences of the pupils.
Of course, schools are already funded by the government, but we all know that this is an over-stretched pot.
The little extras that make school life more enjoyable for your child are the first things to disappear. That’s where the P.FA comes in!
We organise events and fundraising so that staff can buy those things that make our children’s school experience outstanding, by allowing the school to buy extra resources, equipment and access to trips and workshops. The P.F.A also contributes towards the cost of buses/transport for school trips to help keep costs low for parents-especially in this tough economic climate.
So, what is involved in helping the P.F.A? Well, it actually requires very little commitment from individuals. We hold informal meetings, at the club, once every half term. We discuss ideas for events, how previous fundraising has gone, and how the money raised will be spent. For new parents, it’s a fantastic opportunity to get to know other parents, make new friends, and get involved with your child’s school!
Even if you can’t make the meetings, don’t be afraid to offer the smallest bit of help! The committee isn’t huge, and very often manpower is over-stretched. Helping at a cake sale; manning the tombola; or even giving up twenty minutes to help put up the gazebo's for the summer fête. It may not seem much, but it makes a huge difference!
Please remember, the P.F.A. isn’t about an individual, or a group; it’s for the benefit of all our children!
