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

Even better, 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 19th April 2021 – 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, 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:

  • Easter Raffle – 6 beautiful hampers are up for grabs!!  These gorgeous hampers include Chocolate, cuddly toys and even fabulous body shop goodies.

    Get your tickets quickly!! Only £1 a ticket and as always, ALL money raised goes straight back into school to support our Children.

  • Commemorative Tea Towel – The Children we soon be asked to draw their own faces that will then be put onto our very special Commemorative Tea Towel. These will then be available for you to purchase and keep forever!
  • School Picnic – We are all hoping that we can have a “bubble” picnic. Let’s all keep our fingers crossed! More information will be available soon!

    We are all hoping to be able to arrange more amazing events this year. We all need to keep the faith and say a little prayer that come June 2021, we will be able to resume normal activities! If you have any ideas for events or any ways in which we can raise some money for our Children, please get in touch!

    Keep safe x
