What does PTFA stand for?
PTFA stands for Parents, Teachers & Friends Association.
Did you know?
As a parent/carer of a child that currently attends St John the Baptist school,
you are already a member of our PTFA?
What does the PTFA do?
The PTFA is About more than just fund raising, it exists to provide closer links between home & school, to bring together parents, carers & friends socially in support of the school to work towards a common goal.
· We raise funds to help the school provide resources and extras for the pupils
· We run social events for the children and their parents, carers, family & friends
· We support the funding for school trips and outings and other special events
The opportunities that our children are being given are amazing, and it really wouldn't be possible to have all the enrichment activities that are currently provided without these.
When are the Meetings?
Meetings are held at school at regular intervals throughout the year, mainly leading up to events for planning and ideas, usually held on a Tuesday evening at around 6pm, but these will be noted in future in the school newsletter, to give you the opportunity to attend if you so wish. Alternatively, if you have any ideas or information that could be useful to the PTFA or a future event, but you cannot make the meeting. You are more than welcome to leave these at the school office, who will be happy to pass them onto us.
