PTFA Roles

PTFA Roles

You can get involved in the PTFA in many different ways but if you want to help make our events successful and spend funds raised well then why not join us in a more official role?   The Committee Roles are generally nominated during the annual AGM held in February.  Sub-Committees and Class Reps are recruited throughout the year but for the first time in 2013 these roles started being filled at the AGM.

Find out more below.  Nomination form for the AGM is available online and if you want to get in touch just contact us.

Committee

The PTFA Committee is made up of the four main roles: Chair, Vice-Chair, Treasurer and Secretary, and then several other Committee Members.

The main Committee meet once every term.  Sub-Committees feed into these meetings to update on relevant topics.  The Committee discuss and make decisions on the activities, events and dates for the year.  They also vote on how finances should be spent.

Sub-Committees cover the main areas of action and there is a Committee for each of the following:

  • Summer Fair
  • Christmas Activities (Shopping Days, Christmas Fair, Christmas Parties)
  • Multi-Activity (e.g. Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Easter Egg Hunt, Teddy-Bear’s Pic Nic)
  • Disco / Quiz
  • Refreshments
  • Communications (covering newsletters, posters etc)
  • Sponsorship and Fundraising (sourcing prizes, advertising for Summer Fair Programme & external business input throughout the year)

Sub-Committees meet as and when they need to.  The main thing is that these Sub-Committees are made up of people of action who can come up with ideas and get things done.  The Refreshments, Sponsorship and Fundraising and Communications Sub-Committees work with the others to help produce refreshments, publicity, prizes etc.

Class Reps

Class Reps keep on top of what is going on with the PTFA and help communicate this to their classes or year groups.  They help organise the class / year group fair activities or stalls and co-ordinate volunteers.  Class Reps feedback opinion and comments from their classes to the PTFA about events and how funds should be spent.

There can be one, two, three Class Reps.  This roles has proved a great success and is really important for the PTFA.  It’s a fun role and a great way to help keep your class involved.
