We aim for the PTFA to be a resource for the parents, teachers and friends of St Eanswythe’s School to collectively strengthen our school and local community through;
- Inclusive friendship and fellowship that reflects and encourages the rich and diverse.
- Enabling welcoming social opportunities for our children and their families.
- Fundraising to support valuable school projects.
All parents, teachers and friends of St Eanswythe’s school are members of the PTFA. We would encourage as many of you as possible to get involved. Even if you can only offer a small amount of time, your participation could help make a big difference.
We meet once a month, usually the 3rd Thursday, but if this falls during a school holiday it will be an alternative week. Reminders of meetings are put in the schools weekly newsletter and sent to parents.

Each class also have PTFA representatives. Their job is to liaise with other parents from the class, to help promote events, to encourage the selling of raffle tickets and feedback concerns/issues raised by parents to the PTFA. It is not essential that the reps attend all the meetings as we will ensure they are kept updated on all the information
