Hello and welcome to St Bernadette’s PTFA page!!

WHAT IS PTFA? – St. Bernadette’s Parents, Teachers and Friends Association are a friendly group of parents and staff who meet regularly with the aim of raising money for extra benefits and experiences for our children.

OUR AIMS – Our aims are to make a distinctive contribution to the life of the school, the environment for our children, and enables us to purchase extra items for the school which are not included in the school budget and which greatly benefit and enhance school life for all our children.


Following the October AGM, the following new committee was elected:

CHAIR: Mrs Lynda Taylor

VICE CHAIR: Mrs Hayley Moody

TREASURER: Mrs Susan Galvin

SECRETARY: Mrs Hannah Reay

But of course, we can’t do this alone!! 

If you have any fundraising ideas (socially distanced ideas or events that the children could do in their own bubbles for now!!) please get in touch or feel free to pop them on our Facebook page! PTFA Facebook page

Better still, if you would like to join the committee, then please get in touch with us! This can be done either by Facebook, leaving a message with the School office or simply speaking to one of the committee members at the school!

WHEN DO WE MEET? – Meetings are currently being held over zoom meetings. Our next meeting is 30th November 2020 – please let us know if you wish to zoom in!!

Being a member of the PTFA will give you lots of pleasure and enhance your family’s relationship with the school.  Mums and Dads, Grandparents, Staff and friends all combine as individuals to form a friendly school community and as Year 6 parents leave the school, so new Reception parents join.  Everyone is made welcome at any stage through their involvement with the school and it is never too late to get involved.  We are always on the lookout for new members with new and fresh ideas or helpers to run an event. Whatever you can put in – it will be appreciated.



We are looking forward to supporting a range of Christmas activities including:

  • Letter to Santa – If your child would like to write a letter to Santa this year, Mrs Galvin will ensure that their letter gets to Santa in plenty of time so that he can reply! Please make sure that the letter is given to Mrs Galvin, along with £1 for a special postage sticker by Monday November 23rd 2020! The letter will then need to go into the post box in the School Reception area to be picked up by our incredibly special elves and delivered straight to Father Christmas himself! Please feel free to print off the letter template attached to this newsletter to use or why not make your own special letter?
  • Christmas Raffle – We have 5 Luxurious hampers up for grabs!! These would make perfect Christmas presents or of course, keep them for yourselves to enjoy gorgeous goodies over the festive period. Hampers can include, Champagne, Chocolates, Wine, Christmas goodies to name a few! Pictures of the hampers will be on our Facebook Page and School webpage shortly.
