Parent Staff & Friends Association (PSFA)

Home A-Z Contents List Back to Parent Pages

 

The school is very fortunate to have an active Parent Teacher Association.   Whilst it is legally known as the PTA we feel that PSFA (Parents, Staff and Friends Association) is a more inclusive and representative title and so this is the name we have adopted for use on a day by day basis. The PSFA arranges numerous functions for children and parents throughout the year.  All parents or guardians of children at the school are members of the PSFA. The committee, elected annually, meets regularly. They aim to make each parent and stakeholder welcome at every function.

The PSFA supports the ongoing maintenance of our swimming pool.  It has also supported considerable expenditure in recent years and has provided financial support for events in school, such as the provision of professional theatre productions for the children.  Subsidies for transport are provided by the PSFA in order to reduce the cost to parents of their children visiting educational venues and experiencing a diversity of educational experiences.

Fund Raising and Expenditure in 2015/2016

These figures illustrate how the PSFA supports the education of all of the pupils in the school.  The main expenditure is on coaches for school trips where the PSFA support reduces the voluntary contribution for each trip through the year by about 5 per head and thereby ensures that such off site learning remains possible and affordable.  The expenditure on the swimming pool in this particular year was lower than average although in the previous year it was very high and the PSFA were able to draw on funds held on deposit.
