About the PTFA
Friends of Lea PTFA is about more than just fundraising. It exists to provide closer links between home and school. It is an excellent way to bring staff, parents and friends together socially in support of the school, working towards a common goal.
All parents and members of the school community are welcome to get involved if they want to, even if they only have a small amount of time available.
The PTFA strives to be an integral part of the school community. The money raised (more than £6,000 last year) is used to support school by purchasing equipment and resources to enhance and improve the quality of provision in school.
In the past, the PTFA has helped to fund several projects including re-development of the school stage, buying iPads to help with remote learning at home during Covid, fitting a defibrillator on school grounds, providing equipment to support pupil learning and refurbishing the school library as well as providing new books.
Our flyer provides more information about the PTFA and how you can get involved.
Friends of Lea PTFA is a volunteer group working together to support the school. All our events are organised and run by volunteers who give up time to do so. If you can spare some time to help at an event or in the lead up to it, no matter how short that time is, please get in touch.
Upcoming Events and Fundraising
We run several events and fundraising activities throughout the year. You can find our upcoming events below:
Non-Uniform Day - 24th June 2023
For anyone who hasn't had chance to read the newsletter yesterday, here are some key dates coming up!
On Friday 24th November we are holding a non-uniform day in return for a donation for our Christmas Fayre on Tuesday 5th December. The children can come in dressed in their favourite outfit. You are always so generous with your donations, and we are hoping that this year is no exception. Could we please request the following donations from each class.
EYFS, Y1 & Y2 - Bottles for the bottle tombola stall *
Y3,Y4,Y5 & Y6 - Mystery Jars **
Thank you so much - we look forward to seeing you all at the Fayre on Tuesday 5th December at 3.25pm straight after school.
*Bottles can be anything, wine, bubble bath, shampoo, ketchup, beer, or even champagne!
**Please save an empty clean jar (from eg: coffee, pickles, candle), fill with surprises, such as, wrapped chocolate/sweets, stationary, little figures or tiny soft toy etc. Then wrap the jar so the contents are a mystery!
Christmas Fayre – Tuesday 5th December 2023
The Christmas Fayre is back! We hope to see you all at the Christmas Fayre on Tuesday 5th December 3.25-5.00pm, where the entry fee is a hamper item for the raffle prize shopping trolley or a cash donation for the hamper. As usual there are some fantastic prizes to be won. We will have all our usual fun attractions: class stalls, refreshments, mystery jars, toy stall, bottle tombola, voucher tombola, shopping trolley raffle and of course a special appearance from Father Christmas and much, much more! If you can help us prepare for the Fayre or run a stall for a short time on the day do not hesitate to contact school.
