Welcome to the Pinders’ Parents Teachers & Friends Association (PTFA) page




The Pinders Primary Schools new Parents, Teachers and Friends Association (PTFA) is a volunteer organisation dedicated to the schools’ diverse community, to the well-being of our children and to their education and pastoral care. The objective of the PTFA is to raise funds to support the school. We also support the school where we can with their fundraising and other activities. We are a  group of parents, plus a staff representative. We are a registered Charity (Registration Number .........).  Our recently re- established PTFA is very enthusiastic about its efforts and is keen to help the schools offer some ‘added extras’.  To this end, it works in close conjunction with the Senior Leadership Team


Usual fundraising events will soon be back on the calendar. Please keep an eye open for PFTA news  advising of fundraising events coming up.
