The Parent Friend Association (PFA)
The PFA is a part of the school community to which parents can become members. It is headed by a committee and their function is to raise funds to provide additional resources and experiences which the children may not otherwise receive.
Fundraising is done in a variety of ways e.g. Ice lolly sales, Cake sales, Discos, Bags2School and the selling of pre loved uniform.
More recently the PFA provided funds for activities such as the Y6 SATS breakfasts and Year 6 Leaver hoodies.
Without the PFA, the majority of these events would either not take place or would be dependent on direct contributions from parents.
