Bedford Road Parent, Teacher & Friends Association (PTFA)



As the previous fundraising year draws to a close, and a new one begins it is time to write my PTA Chair’s report for 2013-2014, I cannot believe how quickly the year has flown!  

It has been another busy year for the PTA. I would like to thank all of the PTA committee members – parents and staff- for their fantastic enthusiasm and hard work throughout the year.

I would also like to thank all those who, although not officially on the committee, give so much of their time and energy to assist at PTA events.  Although the PTA has several purposes, we do need to raise the funds which allow us to support the school and our aim is to do this in ways which include as many children and their families as possible. The PTA needs the support of all parents, whether as members of the committee, occasional helpers or as supporters of our events.


The PTA is grateful to all the parents who support our events, whether by attending them or by donating items or sponsorship to help us defray our costs. The money that is raised goes straight back in to the school for the benefit of our children, and though prices etc are being discussed our main aim is to raise money for shades for the playground as well as other treats for the children.  


The PTA aims to give donations to all aspects of school life and this year we are delighted to have donated our usual annual donation of £800 and further donations for class Christmas presents.   We held our Easter activities and summer fayre and introduced a new event in order to allow the children to buy Mother’s Day and Father’s Day presents and, of course, held the leavers disco for our year 4’s moving on to middle school.  A new events in discussion is a quiz night and hope to hold more events involving the parents/carers too.

I would like to thank Mr Denton for his support and for giving our PTA access, time, effort and support for the many events we hold throughout the year. 
 Can I just finally say, no matter what we do, our efforts are for our children to ensure that school life is not only about education but fun as well.
