Be part of the PTFA team at Highfield Community Primary School
Being a member of the PTFA will give you lots of pleasure and enhance your family’s relationship with the school. Mums and Dads, Staff and friends all combine as individuals to form a friendly school community and as Year 6 parents leave the school, so new Reception parents join. Everyone is made welcome at any stage through their involvement with the school and it is never too late to get involved. We are always on the lookout for new members with new and fresh ideas or helpers. Whatever you can put in – it will be appreciated.
Putting the fun into fundraising
Fund Raising Events
Over the years the generosity of all those associated with Highfield Community Primary School has enabled the PTFA to donate many hundreds of pounds to worthy projects. People have been very creative in coming up with new ideas to run alongside the tried and trusted events. We have a friendly relaxed approach to our meetings and welcome anyone to come along to see for themselves.
Fun & Social Events
It is not all about raising funds all the time. The social events are equally important and give the children and adults the opportunity to enjoy many friendships at Highfield Community Primary School. The school Disco, for instance, is very popular for all the children and Bingo is a fun evening out for everyone.
