We would like to welcome you and give you some information about the Parent Teacher Friends Association which forms a major part of our school life. All parents and carers of the children are automatically members, and anyone is welcome to attend the meetings - in fact we positively encourage it!
We have a very active and enthusiastic PTFA at Framfield. Our aim is to raise funds independently of the school's allocated budget. Over the years we have raised thousands of pounds, which have been spent on equipment and resources to enhance our children's education and school facilities including extras like theatre trips, Christmas parties and playground equipment, such as the Trimtrail. A couple of years ago we raised and donated a lot of money towards the new pond and had a lot of help from parents and local businesses.
The PTFA are here to provide closer links between home and school and is a great way to bring parents, staff and friends together socially in support of the school, working towards a common goal.
We encourage all parents to come and get involved, even if you only have a small amount of time available. We try to make it as much fun as possible and to involve the children, members of the school and village community at every opportunity.
Please let us know if you have any contacts or skills we could use everything is potentially valuable to us. We meet once a month and are always looking for new ideas and fresh input to raise our balance and the profile of the school. There are a number of ways you can support the PTFA. Offering to help at events during the year or just lending a hand when you can is a great help.
We wouldn't be able to achieve what we do, without help and support.
We are signed up to easyfundraising online. It's a great way to raise money for our school. Shop with any of over 3000 well known retailers listed on easyfundraising.org.uk and a percentage of what you spend is passed to Framfield C.E Primary School at no additional cost to you.

Also every time you search the web using framfieldceprimaryschool.easysearch.org.uk instead of Google or any other search engine, half a penny is raised for School. Search just 15 times a day and you can raise around £25 a year.
