Welcome to the PTFA

The PTFA (Parents, Teachers, Friends Association) raises money to supplement Framfield C of E School. All are welcome within the group. There is a committee who help to pull together ideas for fundraising activities and will lead their organisation. Any funds raised are used on agreed projects. Please see the FAQ section below for PTFA details, projects and how you can help.
