Welcome to Leopold Primary School’s PTFA!

Leopold Primary School has a thriving Parent Teacher Friend Association (PTFA), which has been registered as an official charity since 2015. We hope that all new members of the Leopold community will join us to have fun and raise funds.

What does the PTFA do?

As a registered charity our main aim is to raise funds that provide the school with extra resources and opportunities for the children. Beyond this, the PTFA exists to forge closer links between home and school. As a school, we pledge to give our pupils “amazing experiences” – and the PTFA plays a valuable role in this. We give away 10% of our event tickets, to ensure that all families have the chance to take part in PTFA activities.

Our funds have contributed to the refurbishment of the stage at Hawkshead Road and new AV equipment, and the development of a Peace Garden for the children at the Gwenneth Rickus site. On the Hawkshead Road site we are currently raising funds for playground equipment and exciting in-school theatre experiences for the children.

How do we raise funds?

We host lots of events throughout the year, including:

  • Monthly cake sales
  • School cinema nights
  • School disco
  • Winter and Summer fair
  • Second-hand uniform sales

Every PTFA event provides plenty of opportunities for parents, teachers, friends and children to get involved, raise funds, meet new people and enjoy time together.

How do I get involved?

There are lots of ways to get involved:

  • Attend our PTFA meetings and coffee mornings
  • Sign up to the mailing list for updates
  • Join our Whatsapp group
  • Become a class rep
  • Volunteer at events

Volunteers needed!

We have a loyal, tireless and friendly bunch of volunteers at Leopold who make the PTFA what it is, but we always need more volunteers. Things you can help with:

  • Run a stall at an event
  • Donate a raffle prize
  • Design or our event posters/flyers
  • Donate food and drinks for events
  • Bake cakes
  • Sell raffle tickets or event tickets
  • Help organize donations for events
  • Take photos at events

We hope that you get involved with the PTFA – it’s a rewarding way to be part of a great school!
