What the PTFA means to our school

Because Five Ways PTFA involves the whole school community we thought you would like to know what others think about our PTFA. 

From the Governing Body:

“The PTFA are invaluable, not only for money that they raise, but also for the help and support that they continually give to the school" - Les Bullock, Chair of Governors

From our Headteacher:

“I am totally overwhelmed by the support and dedication of the PTFA. PTFA activities not only provide us with exciting social events, but also raise funds which help to give the children such an enjoyable education, through new resources. The PTFA’s contribution to the school community provides a collective of professional skills, innovation and new ideas, creativity and collaborative working practices. Our PTFA has achieved so much, and I look forward to continuing this valuable partnership in the coming years” -  Mrs Rachel Mander, Headteacher

From the children:

“I think the PTFA is good because our school wouldn’t have new computers or the Summer Fayre without them" - Emily Phillips, Aged 9- Year 5


“The PTFA is fun! I have used the new lap top trolley and it is amazing” - Molly Hitchen, Aged 8 - Year 4


“I like my mum helping on the PTFA because I get to help at the Summer Fayre on my favourite stall – Crazy Sand! Mum asks me which are my favourite sweets and they buy these for the end of term discos” - Sadie Bhageerutty , Aged 9 - Year 5


“I enjoy all of the things the PTFA does. The disco and Easter Egg Hunt are my favourites. I like to do everything they organise because it is fun” - Harry Dalby, Aged 5 - Year 1


“I like the Christmas party because Santa comes and we get a present!” - Harry Edgar, Aged 6 - year 2


“I like non-uniform day because I get to wear my Arsenal kit to school! Having mum come into school and do stuff is cool!” - Angus Kerr, Aged 10 - Year 6
