Inspiring and motivating each other to enrich lives

Stanford Junior School PTFA


Stanford Junior School's Parent, Teachers and Friends Association (PTFA) supports the work of the school and raises valuable funds to enrich the children's time at school.

Schools are increasingly reliant on the support of PTFAs to offset Government cutbacks to education. The Save our Schools campaign group have calculated this as a loss of £14 million for Brighton and Hove alone, with an average loss of £193,425 per school and £487 per pupil.

The PTFA events raise essential funds for school - subsidising school trips, providing funding for music, art and sport equipment. We are currently fundraising for interactive TV screens for classrooms (we still need to fund six more screens at a cost of £5000 each), essential repairs to the playground equipment and to develop an outdoor nature garden in the school grounds.

As well as events at school, there are lots of other ways money can be raised - for example, parents who ran the Brighton Marathon raised £470 in sponsorship in 2018!

If you would like to know more about the work of the PTFA or would like to offer some time to support a forthcoming PTFA event, please contact the school office and a member of the office team will put you in touch with either Nik or Corinna, our co-chairs of the PTFA.

Summer Fair 2018

This year’s summer fair and art gallery was a great success, with lots of fun activities and stalls. The art fair in the school hall displayed some wonderful creations by the pupils, and there were over 90 fabulous prizes in the silent auction and raffle. Thanks to all the local businesses who supported the raffle with their donations - the fair raised over £5000 in total for the school. 

Thanks so much!

Di (new PTFA Co-Chair)
