St Nicholas has a group of enthusiastic, proactive and committed PTFA members. As a committee they have fund raised a considerable amount of money, but most importantly brought staff, pupils, parents and friends of the school together and put on some enjoyable events.

Over the past year, we have had many fundraising activities such as the discos, quiz nights,  Christmas and summer fetes, which are all well supported. We are delighted that the presence of the school choir has become a fixture at our fetes.

Money raised over the past year continues to be put to effective use such as to purchase christmas gifts for each child, playground and vital equipment for use in the school.

As mentioned before, we are fortunate to have a strong, dedicated team but it is also important to acknowledge the support of a band of parents and staff, who whilst not members of the PTFA can be called upon to help set up and run our fetes, their support and help is very much appreciated!  Thank you to all the parents and members of staff who willingly spend their time and money supporting the events throughout the school calendar.

We hope to build further upon the success of the past year,  to welcome new members to the PTFA and also expand our list of willing volunteers and helpers at events and thereby move forward with new ideas. Please contact me via the office or email me at if you would like to be involved in the summer fete. Alternatively, please feel free to attend our relaxed and informal meetings. New members are always welcome!

We are always grateful for feedback from parents and would always welcome any suggestions for different ways in which we could raise funds.  Without the dedicated and tireless support of the PTFA at events, we would not be able to achieve all that we do - our motivation continues to be ‘for the children’.

Please keep an eye on the calendar for news of future PTFA events.
