Who are we?

Charing PTFA (parents, teachers and friends association) is a group of parents, carers, teachers and friends who support the school in different ways. It is a great way to meet other parents and make new friends, especially if you are new to the school.

When do we meet?

We have meetings every few months to plan fundraising events, social activities and to provide support at school events when needed. We normally meet in the school hall and the meetings are open to anyone who wishes to support the school. To find out when our next meeting is please email us or check our Facebook page.

What do we do?

The PTFA arranges many fundraising and social events throughout the year, including quiz nights, cake sales, cream teas and raffles, as well as events for the children in school such as pancake flips and breakfast with Santa. The money raised goes towards supporting school in helping all our children to have an exciting, happy and enriching time!

How can you help?

There are so many ways in which you can help Charing PTFA including

  • Time – could you spare a few hours to help at a PTFA event? Maybe you could find time to volunteer to help buy items needed for an event?
  • Donations – we are often in need of donations of cake for cake sales, raffle prizes for our quiz nights, clothing for our clothes collections and second hand uniform sales. Any donations are always gratefully received!
  • Ideas – we are always on the lookout for new fundraising ideas and ideas for events we could hold for the children in school.
  • Contacts – you may have a contact who would be useful to the PTFA. Do you know a company who would be interested in sponsoring sports kits? Have you a contact who could supply us with items for our events?
