The Parents, Teachers and Friends Association (PTFA) is a group of parents, teachers and friends of the school who work together alongside the school to organise fun events and activities that raise funds which are then used to improve the facilities and learning of our children.
Some examples of things our PTFA funds have been spent on in recent years are:
PE T-shirts (as a welcome gift for new Yr 3 starters)
Sports Day Medals
Yr 6 Leavers' Gifts
A Brand New School Library!
We are always looking for new members to join the team to help out with events and bring new ideas. If you would be interested in joining the PTFA or helping out with any of our events please get in touch! You can keep up to date with PTFA News & Events by joining our Facebook page; 'Matlock All Saints' Junior School PTFA'. Alternatively you can email us with any questions on: firstname.lastname@example.org
As of September 2019, the two PTFAs will be merging to create ONE PTFA for both the Infant and the Junior Schools. We feel that this will be an opportunity to bring together skills and experience from both committees and enable us to create a more cohesive programme of fundraising and events which will particularly help teachers and parents with children at both schools. It will also enable us to put in grant applications for both schools should we feel this appropriate.
In September, all officers will stand down from both committees and anyone can put themselves forward as an officer or committee member for the new joint PTFA. It is anticipated that in order for events to be run at the individual sites, there will be sub committees who will have ownership over particular events. In principle, there shouldn’t feel as if there is a huge difference, other than an increase in resources.
The joint committee will hold their first meeting on Wednesday 9th October 6.00pm - 7.00pm at the Junior School site. At this meeting we will welcome new members and can hopefully fill the committee positions and start planning and fundraising for this year! Please come along to find out more and support us to continue fundraising for our school.
