The Brixham Church of England Primary School PTFA is made up of parents, teachers, friends and other staff members. It acts as a support system to the school in a variety of ways. They hold several main events during the year, the Christmas, Easter and Summer Fayre plus a number of smaller fund raising events for example Valentine’s Disco and shopping events.
The money raised is used to purchase items for the school, pay for transport for school trips and school equipment. Have a look below at some of things the PTFA have purchased for the school.
The PTFA cannot function without the support of all the parents and they will be asking for your help and co-operation to make this year’s events as successful as they have been in the past. If you would like to become involved or if you have any ideas or suggestions, please contact Freddie in the School Office.
