Who/What is the PTFA??
We are a group of parents/carers/friends and staff who come together to raise money for the children of St Nicholas at Wade C of E School.
Each year we run numerous fundraising events to raise money which is then spent on resources that enhance the school learning environment which benefit the children.
We always welcome new people to our meetings which are held regularly alternating after school and evening meetings. We always welcome new ideas and offers of help.
The meetings are friendly and informal the only formal parts are having an agenda and minutes taken.
We’re not looking to shoe horn people into roles or to offload jobs, we would just like a bigger think tank!!
If you have any questions / suggestions / offers of help please email the school office for the attention of PTFA or contact the Chair.
PTFA Chair – Julie Gray
Julie is often on the playground afterschool collecting her own children. If you’re not sure who she is but would like to learn more about the PTFA please enquire at the school office. Julie can be contacted via email – Julie.firstname.lastname@example.org
An ongoing fundraising venture for the PTFA is the 300 CLUB. Parents, staff, villagers and friends of the school are invited to purchase a number (from 1-300) for £10. Half of the total funds will go into the fundraising pot for the school and the other half (potentially £1500 if all numbers are sold) will form a prize fund to be won at regular draws over the year. If you would like to purchase a number please contact Julie or complete the form below and return to the school office.

Tuck shop is also an ongoing and successful fundraiser and takes place after school when we have enough volunteers. Don’t forget your pennies! You will see us by the school gate (if it is raining we will sell the tuck by the side of the staff room)
If you’re free to help out on Friday for a short time, please mention this to one of our stall volunteers.
Last year the PTFA arranged many successful fundraising events including:
Fizz and Quiz
They helped to subsidise both the year 5 and 6 residential trips. The whole school trip to the panto and other class outings. They also contributed a large summer to the renovation of the pond area in school. This year we would like to raise money to help equip the school’s new nurture area and renovate the Quiet garden following our building work.
