PTFA_summer_fair_14The PTFA is our Parent, Teacher and Friends Association

 Our next event is the Christmas Fayre, currently scheduled for Saturday 8th December (TBC).

The PTFA is our Parent, Teacher and Friends Association.

All parents/carers and staff at Stanford Infant School are automatically considered members of the PTFA. It serves an essential role, firstly by providing a sense of community and secondly by organising events that raise funds for the school to buy the extras that we would not be able to afford from the normal school budget.

PTFA Roles 2017

We always welcome help and support:

The PTFA welcomes any help throughout the year. We are particularly interested in hearing from anyone who wants to get involved in our bi annual Raffle and Silent Auction and anyone who could help with some design and technology. There is plenty to get involved with though so any help is much appreciated. It’s a great way to meet people and have fun. You can get involved as little or as much as you’re able to.

Events

There are two major annual events; the Summer and Christmas Fayres. Additional events such as discos, film and quiz nights take place during the year.

PTFA 2016/2017

We had a fantastic academic year, raising a huge £14,260 for the school. We elected a new committee for 2017/2018 at our AGM and hope that we see lots of new parents and carers at our meetings that start again in January 2018. Details of these and all event dates are shared on our Facebook Page, sent through regular school communications and can be found on the noticeboard.

 

 

PTFA Christmas Fayre 2017

Our most recent event and the last of the calendar year was our Christmas Fayre on 9 December which raised £4,845.47! This was an incredible achievement and thank you to all who helped and supported this event.

What does the money buy?

Our PTFA Fayres are key fundraising events that raise essential money for our ‘Outstanding’ school. The school increasingly relies on PTFA support to offset Government cutbacks, for example replacing funds that provided our children with a stimulating and enriched curriculum.

In the past academic year (2016/17) money was spent on purchasing Interactive Smart TVs for each classroom and on new playground equipment in the Reception area. This academic year 2017/2018 we are continuing to fundraise to subsidise school trips and enhance activities and work to our school grounds to embrace outdoor learning.
