The PTFA (Parents, Teachers, Friends Association) raises money to supplement Framfield CofE School. The main committee members help pull together ideas for fundraising activities and organise events, but everyone is welcome to join, we encourage people to attend the meetings, get involved and put forward their ideas and talents. Any funds raised are used on agreed projects. Please see the FAQ section below for PTFA details, projects and how you can help.

We are always looking for help! It is good fun. If you are unable to give your time, maybe you can bake a cake; donate a raffle prize; or maybe you can offer a skill or perhaps give us new ideas…
Send us an email or contact us via the PTFA-Team WhatsApp group, or directly to one of the committee members. You can find our contact details in the side panel.
Meetings are throughout the year, it would be lovely to see you we like to have a bit of fun too, but we understand many parents/carers have commitments and cannot always make the meeting. You can still send in your ideas and get involved in events just by contacting us. Minutes and key dates are shared with everyone so have a read and we are always happy to receive feedback.
How about getting your employer to donate a prize, or finding out if they have equipment or skills that we could borrow for an event?
