Living and Learning with Faith, Friendship and Fun


We had an amazing turn out for our Quiz Night and raised £577.
Thanks to all that came and supported our school.

Charing P.T.F.A.

Charing PTFA (Parents, Teachers and Friends Association) is an informal group of parents, carers, teachers and friends who support the school in different ways.  It can also be a good way to meet other parents and make new friends, especially if you are new to the area.

We have meetings every few months to plan fundraising events, social activities, and also to provide support at school events when needed.  We normally meet in the Staff Room at school, and the meetings are open to anyone who wishes to support the school.  If you are unable to attend the meetings but would like to help when you can, please let us know, we are always keen to hear new ideas and find out your talents!

Over the years we have organized a huge range of events for both fundraising and fun including our annual 10K race which attracts runners from all over the county and beyond, cake sales, Barn Dances, camp overs, boot fairs, fashion shows – the list goes on.

Above all, we exist to support school in helping all our children to have an exciting, happy and enriching time at Charing School, and provide some of the extra sparkle to school life!
