PTFA


The Great Totham Primary School PTFA is a charitable organisation. Its purpose is to work alongside the teaching staff to enhance the education of each and every child at the school.  The PTFA is dependent upon the support of the Parent Body for giving time and donations to make events a success.

"One of the things I value most highly about our PTFA is the fantastic community spirit it generates,"

Miss L Cleghorn, Deputy Head Teacher

Why do we need a PTFA?
 
We work with the school and the Parent Body to arrange events through which we build a greater sense of community and raise money to be able to enrich the learning opportunities for the children. 
 
For example, in the past two years, we have raised over £30,000 that has enabled the school to radically improve the provision of ICT education, create an outdoor education space for KS1 and fund the school pantomime.
 
We depend on you to help us to do this through support through a range of events such as
  • Summer Fete
  • Christmas Fair
  • Golf Day
  • Sponsored Walk
  • Bouncy Bonanza
  • 50/50 scheme (see below)
  • Movie Nights
  • Kids on the Catwalk
  • And much more...
Your support can be a personal or corporate donation, giving up your time to help on a stall or at an event, using the gift matching scheme or coming along to an event and having fun.
 
The organisation of events is a key aspect of how the PTFA functions and without volunteers this could not happen. Let us know how you would like to be involved as Great Totham Primary School needs you!  Why not come along to a PTFA meeting or contact us via the school office?
 
Please read more about what the PTFA does, how it does it and how you can get involved (not necessarily by attending meetings or organising events!) by reading our FAQs here.

The School Lottery – the new name for 50/50 club

What is it and how does it work? 

We have a school lottery which has historically been called ‘50/50 club’. To make sure everyone knows what it is we have renamed it ‘The School Lottery.’ 50% of the subscriptions goes straight to PTFA funds, and the remaining 50% goes into the monthly prize draw. 

Parents, teachers or friends of the school pay a subscription to the club to buy one or more lottery numbers. Each number is entered into a monthly draw, and 3 prizes (1st, 2nd & 3rd) will be awarded. The more people who subscribe, the bigger the prize pot!

How much does it cost?

The annual subscription is £60 i.e. £5 per month per number. This must be paid by standing order either monthly (on 1st of the month) or annually.

How do I join the club?

If you are interested, click on the attached application form and flier, then print off and return the reply slip to the black post box at the school office or via your child's class. Please ensure that the envelope is clearly marked 'PTFA School Lottery'.  An application form will be sent home via the school bag system.
