Welcome to Appleby Primary School PTFA page

What is a PTFA?

The PTFA is the Parents, Teachers, and Friends Association of Appleby Primary school. All parents, carers, guardians, staff, past parents, grandparents, ancillary staff, and Governors are Members and are welcome to attend meetings.

What does the PTFA do?

The main objective of the Association is to advance the education of pupils in the school. This can take the form of fundraising, arranging social events, like the Summer Fair, or assisting with school events.

Why should I get involved?

There are many reasons to get involved with the PTFA; making new friends; getting to know the school environment; helping raise much needed funds; and making a difference to the Primary School for current and future pupils.

How much time will I have to commit?

As much or as little as you like. Some people prefer to help on the day, at events, and some like to get involved with the Committee. There is absolutely no pressure.

How else can I help?
