PTFA

Here are some of the events Compass Point PTFA have organised.

What is the PTFA?

PTFA stands for Parent Teachers & Friends Association.

The PTFA exists to strengthen links between home and school and improve children’s experience of school. 

Starting school can be a bit daunting for new parents as well as children. The PTFA provides opportunities for you to get to know other parents and staff and be part of the school community.  For parents and carers of any child at school it’s a place to get involved, to have a bit of fun, share skills or learn new ones and to strengthen the links with school and make school a better place.

What does the PTFA do?

Organises events such as:

Fireworks, Halloween Disco, Valentine Disco and the Summer Fayre.

The PTFA plays an important part in raising additional money for school. It pays for the opportunites not covered by the school budget. The funds raised support year 6 children in attending summer camp, providing a firework display, buying playground equipment. 

Getting involved

The PTFA aims to be fun and all parents and carers are invited to get involved. This year some parents and carers, helped with food and drink at the Valentine Disco. Others helped set up on the day of the school fayre or on stalls. Some came to meetings and were involved in organising the whole event. The PTFA is flexible, as much or as little as suits you.

Could you help out at an event?

Do you have an idea for an event or fundraising?

It’s not necessarily about committing to a whole year or every meeting. Maybe you’d just like to help with the halloween disco or organise a Christmas event.

The PTFA is open to ideas:

Ideas for raising money, for events, for how to spend money raised.

What would you like to see more of? How would you like to improve school?

How does it work?

The PFTA can’t exist without parents and carers of the children at school being part of it.

Without the PTFA school  loses funds and popular additional activities that give school that added extra and make a difference to each child’s experience of school.

The PTFA meet on a regular basis, once or twice per half term to plan and co-ordinate events.  Parents  and carers are kept updated via email, posters or the school newsletter. The PTFA is a charity, registered with the Charity Commission. 

Sign up to the Compass Point PTFA e-mailing list to receive regular information about upcoming events, meetings and how you can be involved – email compasspointptfa@gmail.com to be added.  We’d would love every parent and carer to be part of the ptfa.
