Parents, Teachers and Friends Association [P.T.F.A.]
All parents and staff at Castle Cary Primary School are members of the PTFA, which exists to promote a sense of community and raise funds for additional school resources and activities.
At its AGM each September, a group of volunteers agrees to run the organisation and all parents are encouraged to help and support its functions.
The money raised always benefits the children and parents are kept informed about P.T.F.A events and how the money raised is spent.
Over the last couple of years, the PTFA has paid for:
- Our House Reward System
- New class IPads
- Reading books
- Resources for EYFS
- Year 6 leavers celebration - a bouncy castle and picnic
- Year 6 Ice cream van on their last day
What is the PTFA?
The Parents, Teachers and Friends Association
In short anyone who has a link with the school! We are a registered charity with the aim of furthering the education of pupils by providing facilitiies, equipment and activities not normally provided for within the school budget.
What do we do?
We organise big fundraisers such as the Christmas Fair, Summer Fete, Bingo and Valentines Disco. We also spend a lot of time serving refreshments at various events throughout the school year.
How often do we meet?
We meet two or three times a term, but there is no need to come to all the meetings in order to be involved.
Meetings are either in the evenings or at the end of the school day. We are often fortunate to have a creche for meetings held directly after school.
How can you help?
If you think you might be able to help in any way at all, please contact the school and a member of the PTFA will contact you.
