PTFA & 'School Shop'

The Parent's Teacher's & Friend's Association is a group who meet approx 6 times per year in the staff room, of an evening, to plan social events and fundraisers with an aim to offer the funds to the school for them to buy added value items to enhance our children's education. Anything from refurbishing the non-fiction library, to paying for climbing equipment or mobile staging, we look forward to seeing what the school wish us to fundraise for next!

We welcome any new members to our committee or to our list of 'helpers' and together we plan and run our many, varied events throughout the year - from Film Clubs to Cake Sales, from Tombola stalls to Pig races.... we'll try it all to bring the school community together and raise funds.

Please come and speak to any PTFA member if you have any questions.

The PTFA also help to run a 'School Shop' service. We run a monthly 'shop' in the dining room of the school from 3-4pm where you can buy the new school tie, school book bags, PE bags, water bottles and spare lids.

If you aren't able to come along to the 'school shop' and want to buy any of these items, just pick up an order form from the front office of school or print your own (link below), then complete it and return it with a cheque payment and we will organise your items at the next school shop date.

We also encourage you to come along to the 'shop' as we have a full range of the uniform sizes (Sweatshirts and Cardigans) for your child to try on. Then when you know the correct size you can go online using the link in green (above right) and order and pay for your child's uniform through a company called School Trends. (Please note, the uniform is stitched to order so please order the right size as there are no 'returns'.)       The closing date for online orders is the 26th of each month, then School Trends make up our order and post it to school usually within 2 weeks of that closing date. We will let you know when your order is in and you can collect it from the front office.

We have also included the link (above right) to My Nametags, a company who offer a high quality product for uniform tags and stickers for school accessories which can be designed for your child, meaning less lost property, plus it is easier for your child to locate their things. If you put in the school ID of 39297 when you order, the school receives a % of the company profit for us to use for our fundraising! So, there is less 'lost property' and we make money out of it too! Everyone's a winner!

If you have any queries about 'School Shop', send us a note via the front office or catch Dawn Smith or Helen Kerswell in the playground!
