Here are some of the events Compass Point PTFA have organised.



What is the PTFA?

PTFA stands for Parent Teachers & Friends Association.

The PTFA exists to strengthen links between home and school and improve children’s experience of school.

Starting school can be a bit daunting for new parents as well as children. The PTFA provides opportunities for you to get to know other parents and staff and be part of the school community. For parents and carers of any child at school it’s a place to get involved, to have a bit of fun, share skills or learn new ones and to strengthen the links with school and make school a better place.


What does the PTFA do?

Organises events such as school discos, family picnics, film nights and more...

The PTFA plays an important part in raising additional money for school as well as help build the school community. It pays for the opportunites not covered by the school budget. The funds raised support year 6 children in attending summer camp, buys new playground equipment and subsidises school trips making them more affordable for all.

The PTFA aims to be fun and all parents and carers are invited to get involved. You can get involved in as much or as little as you like. Whether it's creating posters, baking cakes or just coming up with some great ideas - your contribution is valued. The PTFA is flexible, as much or as little as suits you.


How does it work?


The PFTA can’t exist without parents and carers of the children at school being part of it.

Without the PTFA school loses funds and popular additional activities that give school that added extra and make a difference to each child’s experience of school.

The PTFA meet on a regular basis, once or twice per half term to plan and co-ordinate events. Parents and carers are kept updated via email, posters or the school newsletter. The PTFA is a charity, registered with the Charity Commission.

Sign up to the Compass Point PTFA e-mailing list to receive regular information about upcoming events, meetings and how you can be involved – email compasspointptfa@gmail.com to be added. We’d would love every parent and carer to be part of the ptfa.
