The PTFA website is now available on http://www.fieldingptfa.org.uk/.
If you are a parent, guardian or any relative of a child at Fielding or a member of staff then you are a member of the Fielding Parent Teachers and Friends Association (PTFA).
The aim of the PTFA is to raise money for the school and to arrange fun social events for adults and children. The PTFA has a long tradition of organising innovative and exciting opportunities for all the family.
As the PTFA is a registered charity, it has to have an annually elected committee (drawn from parent volunteers) made up of a Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary and Treasurer. In addition parents volunteer to be Class Reps and we are also lucky enough to have many talented parents who assist the committee with other jobs such as publicity materials, website design and sponsorship. Meetings are held in school twice a term, and small working groups organise each event - everyone helps in any way they can.
Our main fund raising events of the year are the Christmas and Summer Fairs. Other events have included a Quiz Night, Roller Disco, Car Boot Sale, Adult Evening, Barbeque and coffee mornings and regular cake sales. Class reps can organise class or year group nights out, and we try to fit in as many different and fun activities as we can. If you have an idea for an event you would like to organise, please get in touch with us either in the playground, via the PTFA email or through the PTFA mailbox in school reception.
Last academic year we raised c.£20,000 and have recently provided funds towards:
the living eggs project in Nursery ( hugely successful and to be increased in size across other year groups)
recording equipment for the music suite
new library books and resources
building new play equipment such as the pirate ship on the school field
school laptops and iPads
Key Stage 2 disco in January
Wet Weather Toys for all year groups
subsidising school trips
Year 6 graduation celebrations
The PTFA supports School Council projects (voted for by the children) and charities, giving time and funds to ensure their success. Without the money raised by our events the above projects and activities would not be possible.
We hold our Annual General Meeting (AGM) in October or November at which we elect our committee for the following year. But please don’t wait until then. So if you would like to help give the school better facilities and ensure our children have lots of extra curricular activities, come along and join us.
WE NEED YOU!
