PTFA

At St Mary Magdalene’s RC School we have a Parent, Friends and Teacher Association to help raise much needed funds for school.

Did you know as your child is at the school you are automatically a member of the PTFA?

The good news is, everything your PTFA raises goes directly to providing for the school, and, in consultation with staff, parents have a say on where and how the money is spent.

You can make a real difference! More parents involved with their PTFA means more money raised through more fun events, benefiting everyone.

What value does your PTFA already bring to school?

  • Fundraising – whether it’s paying for extras or essentials, every penny directly benefits our children
  • Fun – our events are enjoyed by children, parents and teachers alike, and are a great way to bring the whole school community closer together
  • Parent voice – discussing where PTA money is spent.

Did you know that last year, your PTFA raised hundreds of pounds through fundraising, which paid for IT equipment for school. This year our fundraising is focusing on the outside areas at school.
