Who we are and what we do

As soon as your child starts their school life at Southfield Park Primary School, all parents and carers become members of The Friends of Southfield Park.

Our PTFA is a registered charity (registration number 1110233) run by a small committee who plan events and raise funds for our school. We hold regular meetings, some formal (because we have to!), but mainly very informal, to discuss upcoming events, fundraising ideas, etc.

Fundraising is now more important than ever before, as school budgets are stretched, but as well as raising much-needed funds, the social events we run bring the whole community together, and links with teachers help to give all parents a say in their child’s education.  Events that we have run previously include the Christmas and Summer Fairs, along with discos, treats and pre-loved uniform and Christmas Jumper sales.

We have fun whilst we are doing it and are proud of the contribution we are making to our school.

Why not join us?

  • We'd love you to join us!
  • Don’t be put off if you if you feel you can’t give your time, or are unsure what’s involved.
  • Most of us work part-time or full-time. Any time you can give, however big or small, is welcome.
  • We can use any skills you have, and you might learn new ones.
  • Being involved is a great way to get to know the school and other parents.
  • We'll hold meetings each term, so come along and see what we are about. There's no obligation.
  • We also have a "Friends of the Friends" group for people who are able to help us out when we need extra volunteers but aren't able to fully commit to joining the Friends right now.
  • We’re also really grateful to parents who help us out by looking after the stalls at the fairs, and donating items when we ask for them.  We really couldn't do this without you all.
