Where does the money raised go?

At the start of each year, the PTFA meets with the Headteacher to discuss a wish list of items the school would like the PTFA to consider funding. Sometimes this will be as a result of the children asking for something. At other times it will be for resources to improve a particular area of the curriculum or school environment. PTFA funds are not generally spent on improving the fabric of the school building as this is the responsibility of the school Governing Body. Our Constitution commits us to spending money on things that will benefit the children directly. It is at our PTFA Committee meetings, that the decisions on how to spend the money are agreed.

We always endeavour to spend our funds in ways that will benefit all our children across all areas of the school and curriculum. Many of the resources purchased have a direct link to the School Improvement Plan. The money we raise is usually spent fairly quickly. That way, you can be sure that in supporting our school, your child/ren will feel the benefit, along with everybody else.
