We also have a group parents with children across the year groups who have volunteered to be involved.
The PTFA was established at our first AGM on 11th Feb 2020.
The purpose of the PTFA, as set out in our constitution is “to advance the education of the pupils of the school through developing an effective relationship between the staff, parents & others associated with the school, engaging in activities or providing facilities or equipment which support the school & advance the education of the pupils.” In short we are here to help fundraise & facilitate fun for the kids.
A non-uniform day was held on 14th February 2020 to raised funds with the intention of joining Parent Kind so we could run fundraising activities & events. Before we could get this established the coronavirus pandemic intervened & the PTFA has been effectively dormant since.
We are now starting to once again work with the school to try to facilitate any way in which we can safely help to raise funds or enhance the pupils’ school experience within the necessary restrictions that are currently in place because of the current coronavirus pandemic.
If you would like to get involved please contact Anna at ChairPTFA.SJW@schools.sefton.gov.uk
