The two schools have had separate PTAs, but we are looking to merge into one that supports all of the children in the federation.
Below are the details for the current PTA at Toftwood Infant School.
Friends of Toftwood Infant School
Who are we?
Parents, past parents, carers, grandparents and school staff who have a little spare time and lots of enthusiasm! Most of us work full time. We have regular FOTIS meetings to organise and plan fundraising events. We also help at school functions. In addition to this we meet informally and these meetings are much more social events. We have enjoyed some very lively evenings out!
What do we do?
FOTIS and the school work in partnership encouraging home-school links. FOTIS supports the school by raising extra funds. This money is used to subsidise educational visits, provide educational and play equipment, pay for activity days, music recitals and Christmas parties. The children benefit greatly from all of these things and they could not be provided without financial help from FOTIS.
We try to make fundraising events fun, social occasions. These include the summer fayre, and events for the children.
To continue to provide a range of activities and equipment for the children we need your help and support. You can do this in a number of ways:
- Join the committee. It is fun and everyone is welcome. You will soon get to know people.
- Volunteer to help at our events. We welcome help from everybody to make our events a success. You do not have to be on the committee to help out. Requests for help will be sent out on newsletters throughout the year and all help is greatly appreciated.
- Make a cake. We have fayres and other events and we are always grateful to receive a good cake to sell.
- Turn up and support us. Even if you can’t join the committee or help out, come along to our events and join in.
The more we raise the more all our children benefit. Please support us in whichever way you can. The committee, staff and children would appreciate your involvement. Please come along to one of our meetings, you are guaranteed a warm welcome.
We are always looking for new members and new ideas, so please do join us! The school is always grateful for our support and we have raised money for many worthwhile causes in the school, such as the pond area, the outdoor classroom, adventure playground as well as gifts for the children at Christmas and when they leave the school.
A few hours of your time can help make all the difference – without you there is no committee so please do help if you can.
You can contact the FOTIS committee through the school office or any FOTIS member.
We look forward to hearing from you! You can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
