Burnham on Sea Infants PTFA (Parent, Teachers, Friends Association)
Who are we?
We are a group of likeminded parents, grandparents, friends and staff members who raise funds for the school by organising social and fundraising events throughout the year. Our role is to encourage closer links between home and school.
We all joined for the same reasons - we wanted to be involved with the children's school and offer help wherever we can.
Chairperson- Charlotte Ford, parent.
How is money raised?
The PTFA raises money through various events.
Recently, we organised the Coronation Craft & Quiz Packs, as well as the School Disco, which were both very popular and raised additional funds for the school.
The PTFA are always looking for new fundraising ideas and anyone can submit them. Donations can also be made without any link to events.
How is money spent?
Funds raised by the PTFA are intended to provide ‘extras’ not already provided by the school's main income – these are usually 'fun things' that make learning more interesting and exciting. The PTFA committee decides how to spend the funds by working closely with Mrs Hatch and the Governors. We have recently 'spruced up' the outdoor area, but still want to do more.
How can I be involved in my PTFA?
There are many ways you can help with the PTFA, whether you have lots of time to offer or not. Some of the roles are time-consuming, although also rewarding. If you cannot commit to a big job, look out for things you can do less frequently, such as helping out at events or donating prizes.
If you do have any ideas, suggestions, or want to help out at the odd event but can't spare the time to come to meetings then please do contact us by emailing: KBurnett@burnhaminfants.com or via the school office. We'd love to hear from you!
Please feel free to come to any of our future PTFA meetings, which are held roughly every couple of months. Meeting notices go up in the classroom windows.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
