School year 2020-2021
Hello to all new, present, previous and prospective parents / carers of our school!
We’re proud of our school and its strong, vibrant and friendly community. We’re an active PTFA and we play an important role in bringing us all together as a school community and in raising funds for the benefit of all our children.
All our parents, teachers and friends are members of our SJSC PTFA (a registered charity) and through our network of parent / teacher volunteers and supporters we plan and organise events and activities with energy and passion. All our year groups have PTFA reps to help spread the word and make all our parents and carers feel part of our community.
Autumn Term 2020
Due to circumstances this year we’ve had to be rather innovative! We’ve organised a virtual cake decorating competition, festive cards and gifts using the children’s artwork, a hilarious Online Panto (Oh yes we have!), a fantastic online raffle supporting many local businesses and super quality Christmas trees… just this term alone!
We’re already hard at work planning appropriate and fun events and activities for 2021! We work closely with our school’s senior leadership team to decide where to spend the money we raise. Over the past few years our PTFA has raised funds for a wide range of areas including educational and fun class trips, improvements to our peace garden and covered playground areas, investing in new technology (laptops and digital cameras) and providing playground equipment and outdoor games for the children.
We always welcome any new ideas or if you have a few hours available and would like to help support any of our PTFA initiatives we’d love to hear from you – please contact us at SJSCPTFA@gmail.com
Thank you from all the SJSC PTFA Team!
