PTFA stands for Parents, Teachers and Friends Association. We are a registered charity, no 285219.
We are a small but merry band of volunteers: parents, a grandparent, a former teacher, the Sports Centre Manager ... we represent a range of members of the local community who are passionate about doing their best to support the staff and students of Sewell Park.
Our main function is fundraising to provide 'extras', which we do in three main ways:
Termly raffles (Christmas gifts, Easter eggs and Summer days out);
Two Quiz & Chips evenings each year, usually in May and November;
For obvious reasons we haven't been able to do any significant fundraising or volunteering since the start of the COVID pandemic. You can see an overview of our activities and finances in our PTFA report which, In a normal year, would have been presented and discussed at our AGM. This year a draft was circulated to and approved by the PTFA Committee and Mr Day, Headteacher.
Currently we feel that one of the most useful things we can do is offer moral support to the hardworking staff at Sewell Park..... and have decided that half-termly donut runs are the best way to do this!
