What we do:

We want to help make our children's education experience the best that we can!


As the PTFA, we are committed to:

Raising much needed funds to enrich our children's learning and school experience creating wonderful school memories for all students, parents, teachers and friends with Summer/Christmas fairs Disco's and much more encouraging a sense of community in support of parents, teachers and the broader community

The PTFA achieves these aims through planning and rolling out a series of events, activities, initiatives and partnerships throughout the school year.

As much as raising funds is an important aspect of the PTFA, it plays just as an important part in building a strong community:

  • By getting to know parents and teachers outside your kids peer group.
  • By making little eyes sparkle at events created especially for them.
  • By learning to do new things as a team and dreaming up new ideas.
  • By engaging with the local community on our doorstep Making new friends and having a laugh.


Many thanks to everyone for your support. We want this year to be the start of something very special and with your help it will be amazing!
