Welcome to the PTFA
Parents, Teachers and Friends Association (PTFA) Overview
Our PTFA is an active community-focused association of parents, teachers, and friends of Sacred Heart, which aims to bring the ‘school family’ together while raising essential funds for the school. We are very fortunate to have a PTFA that is, and has historically been, an integral part of the school community, by organising exciting events and raising money for a whole key-range of projects. The PTFA became a registered charity (n. 1177111) in February 2018. The Charity Commission monitors the association and its spending.

What we do
The PTFA is here to support the school in the provision of an education that has all children at the heart of it.
All families automatically become members of the PTFA when they join the school, and we want as many people involved as possible. Together we run fundraising events and activities to raise money for educational resources, and we also want these to bring people together and build on our fantastic community spirit. We aim to deliver a calendar of events that appeal to all.
Each year the amount of money raised will vary depending on what is put together. The PTFA committee works closely with the Headteacher and staff members to understand the needs of the school.
Past PTFA requests for funds have included:
- School Trips
- Hardship Fund
- Garden Works
- Benches / Picnic Tables
- Gym Cross Trainer
- Drama Lighting Board.
