Parents, Teachers, & Friends Association (PTFA)

Fordham All Saints Primary School has had a successful, committed, hardworking P.T.A. for many years. Over time the PTA (now PTFA)  has been able to fund and support many  areas of the children’s education and as such have equipped the school with resources, including;

  • Playground storage
  • Outside sunshade 
  • Benches
  • PA system
  • Staging
  • Reading books
  • Library refurbishment
  • Kindles
  • Patio area under sunshade

As well as one off purchases we have also been able to continually pay for;

  • New starter book bags
  • Year 6 leavers book
  • Panto & Beach trip travel

We have a number of fundraising events which take place throughout the year, these include;

  • Movie & Munch – Children enjoy a film and snack after school which generates approx. £200 each
  • Bags for Schools – The collection of unwanted clothing paid by the Kilo.
  • Discos – Held twice a year, with our tradition dance off between the girls and boys! These are thoroughly enjoyed by all the children with hot food, sweets, tattoos and glow goodies available, raising approx. £650 a year.
  • Christmas Fayre & Summer Bounce – A good celebration with food, games and much more. A little bit more organisation required but well worth it for the cash generation!
  • Tea & Cake Sales – Always popular at Sports day and during the KS1 Nativity and KS2 Summer production.
  • Raffles – PTA non-uniform days are held in return for a raffle donation these maybe items for hampers, Easter eggs or tombolas. Tickets sold = winners all round!

Even though we are a small school our PTFA and families work extremely hard and as a result we have been hugely successful at raising funds to enhance our children’s education. For this to continue we really do need the support of parents so we welcome new faces to join us. You don’t need to be a regular committee goer and if you can only offer a few hours to help either before or during an event all help is greatly appreciated.

If you do become an active PTFA committee member, meetings are very informal and are approximately once a term, held before the end of the school day and young siblings are more than welcome to join us. We sometimes have cake too!! Meetings last about 45 minutes and serve the purpose of discussing events planned for the children for that term. There is no obligation to attend every meeting, and minutes of the meeting can always be e-mailed to you.

Please help us continue to go forward and support in any way that you can.

Thanking you in anticipation,

(P.T.F.A. Committee Members)
