Stanford Junior School PTFA

Welcome

Stanford Junior School's Parents, 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 - for schools in Brighton this has been calculated at an average loss of £193,425 per school and £487 per pupil.

Money raised from PTFA events provides funding for music, art, technology and sports equipment, as well as improvements to outdoor areas. In September 2018 we purchased three new picnic benches for the playground, made from recycled plastic. In 2019 we’re raising funds to buy TV screens and a new stage for the hall, plus table tennis equipment and planters to improve the outdoor space.

As well as events at school, there are lots of other ways money can be raised - for example, one dad ran the 2018 Brighton Marathon and raised £270 via Just Giving. If you would like to know more about the work of the PTFA or would like to offer some time to support a forthcoming event, please contact the Co-Chairs (Di and Bea) at stanfordjuniorsptfa@gmail.com.

Please check our Facebook page or Twitter for details of our forthcoming events!

Events

Our main fundraising event is the Stanford Junior School Summer Fair, which will be held on Sunday 30 June 2019. In 2018 the fair raised over £5000 in total for the school and we’re grateful to all the local businesses who contributed raffle prizes. 

We also host regular Discos, Quiz Nights, Cake sales and Movie nights - our Neon Disco in October 2018 raised over £1000 for the PTFA, with almost 200 children dancing the night away in the school hall!
