 Parent, Teachers and Friends Association


As a parent or carer at Ashurst Wood School you are automatically a member of the PTFA.



The PTFA plays a very important role in our School. It has several functions:

  • to promote our community through social events and family participation
  • to enable regular discussions between parents and teachers on matters relevant to the school
  • to raise funds, which provide important revenue for school equipment, learning opportunities and treats.


The PTFA Committee meets once a half term and meeting dates are publicised in the School newsletter, in the playground and on the PFTA Facebook page.  


Some examples of what the PTFA financed in 2015/16 are:

  • A whole School Panto
  • Easter Egg Hunt
  • Maths shed for KS1 outdoor area
  • Year 6 Leavers books
  • Ice pops on Sports Day
  • Balloons for the Year 6 Balloon Release
  • Hi-Viz jackets
  • New fence in KS1 outdoor area.


Parents have also met up to form working parties, and have:

  • moved the Library to its new location
  • erected the fence in the KS1 outdoor area
  • put displays up for the children.


As you can see the PTFA have been very busy but we are always looking for new ideas and welcome anyone with a little spare time who can join the team.


The PTFA is a great place to get to know your fellow parents / carers and feel a part of the school community.
