Fielding Primary School and Nursery

As the PTFA is a registered charity, it has to have an annually elected committee (drawn from parent volunteers) which is generally 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, updating website pages, artwork, event planning, communications, design and sponsorship.

We generally hold a PFTA meeting twice a term, and small working groups organise each event - everyone helps in any way they can. If you would like to get involved, please email or

Our main fund raising events of the year are the Christmas and Summer Fairs. Other events include Quiz Night, Disco,  Movie Afternoon, Comedy Nights, Circus and Pantomime, Barbecues and regular Friday cake sales. Class reps can organise class or year group nights, 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 (2018/2019) we raised over £52,000 - a record.  Each year, the PTFA funds the school these ways:

  • Annual donation of around £15k- £20k with spending decisions made by school leaders and the governing body.
  • Capital projects which benefit all pupils - last year  our money was invested in artefact loan school resource boxes which will be used across all the school years on specific subjects, tea and coffee supplies for staff, extension of the kitchen garden to include a pond and investment for recommended reading library books. 
  • Up to £500 for each age group for a trip off-site or enrichment activity in school, decided by each school-based Year Leader.
  • Bid funding for specific projects, for example, Year 6 production and leavers' events.

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 at which we elect our committee for the following year. However, 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. Please email or or come along to any of the events below outlined below.
