PTFA Minutes

PTFA Minutes
9th November 2015


Before we start just a couple of points
  • We have teachers here, the AGM and PTFA meetings/events are not a place for discussing your child’s progress if you wish to do this then please arrange a meeting with your teacher.
  • When we are in the school, particularly in the staff room using the facilities that the teachers use, there maybe things that are seen or heard that you wouldn’t normally have access to. May I remind you that anything that is seen or heard within the school remains confidential and is not for discussion with others outside of the school.

Head Teachers update

Mrs Wilson appreciates all our hard work and contributions to the school.
No requests for contributions at this meeting

Mrs Glover was unfortunately unable to attend the meeting but has requested a contribution of £1000 for a French framework for the whole school, Foundation through to year 6. The framework is a company called Rigalo. It was agreed that a sub committee would meet with Mrs Glover at school in the week to learn more about Rigalo, what it offers the children and the school. Then a vote can be made on the contribution.

Charity Registration
As a PTFA we are now a registered charity and are eligible for Gift aid. Alison is to look up the Gift aid rules and see how and when we can claim.

Easy fund update
So far we have raised £31.88 by shopping via the easy fund web site, please continue to spread the word about using easy funding. We are now registered to Stampstastic and Yellow moon.

School disco

Wednesday 21st October
Mrs Wilson asked us to look into starting straight after school instead of the usual times. A question sheet was handed out to parents at the disco asking parents if they would prefer starting straight after school or stay at the regular time, the overall response was that the regular time was wanted.
