The PFTA (Parent Friend Teacher Association) is a group of volunteers that meets every half term to organise fundraising events on behalf of the school. Money raised directly benefits all children and provides the school with additional funding to support the curriculum. Annual events include: a Promises Auction; a Christmas Fayre; a Quiz Night and a Summer Fayre. During 2017-18, the PFTA funded the purchase of new Home Reading books for all year groups, new playground equipment and a set of fifteen laptops.
All parents and teachers are members of the PFTA and are welcome to attend any meetings. Meetings are held at Blackwell First School or Blackwell Club.
Chair of PTFA: Mrs Claire Evans
