Welcome to the Parents’, Teachers’ and Friends’ Association (PTFA) of St Bede’s Inter-Church School.

We are a friendly team of dedicated members who do what we can to work alongside the Headteacher and staff, as well as other parents and carers, to discuss new ideas and make a positive contribution towards the life of the school.

The PTFA meets once or twice a term to discuss and organise fundraising events for the school. Our meetings are informal and friendly, and we aim to make fundraising as enjoyable as possible.

Our primary aim is to raise funds to enable the school to purchase extra items to enhance the students’ learning and experience in school. Recently, money raised has gone to supplying; earphone sets for ICTaprons for the Art Departmentchess boards for Chess Club and korfball nets.

Regular PTFA events include ceilidhs and family fun quiz nights. The PTFA volunteers also serve hot and cold refreshments at musical events, school plays and the Carol Service.

If you would like to help us by joining the PTFA you would be very welcome to come to any of our meetings. If you would prefer just to offer help serving refreshments once or twice a year, we would also like to hear from you. Don’t forget, too, that becoming involved in the PTFA is also a great way to meet other parents and staff and to feel more integrated into the community of St Bede’s.
