Highfields PTFA

Images taken at Highfields School in Burntwood, Staffordshire to show the range of activities that take place on a normal school day.

WELCOME to Highfields School PTFA.  The PTFA is made up entirely of Parents, Teachers and Friends, dedicated to running events, funding experiences and providing resources for the children at the school.  It relies entirely on the goodwill and energy of those involved.

Through events held throughout the year, funds are raised which are passed onto the school to supplement normal budgets.

How do YOU get involved?!?

Every parent/carer is automatically a member of the PTFA and is welcome to attend all meetings.  These meetings are held on a regular basis at school and are always advertised beforehand in the school bulletin, text message and on the PTFA’s noticeboard (located on your right hand side as you walk in through the school gates).

 We are always looking for new members to attend meetings with fresh ideas.  However, if you are unable to attend meetings but would still like to be involved, please get in touch as all help is greatly appreciated.

 Autumn Disco – Thursday 2nd November, 2017

The next PTFA Disco will be held on Thursday 2nd November at the following times:-

KS1 (Reception, Yrs 1 and 2)      6.00 – 7.00pm        (£2.00 per child)

PTFA Christmas Panto

 This year the PTFA, in collaboration with The Panto Bus, will be putting on a performance of Sleeping Beauty.  This will be held at Burntwood Institute on Saturday 2nd December 2017 at 12pm.  Tickets for the event will go on sale shortly.

This will be the third year we have worked with The Panto Bus and we are looking forward to another successful event.  As well as the performance there will be refreshments (including hot food), a raffle and chocolate tombola.  This makes for a fantastic and affordable Christmas family event and of course in attending you are supporting your school.

Uniform Shop

The Uniform Shop works on the generous donations of unwanted LOGO uniform.  All items of uniform are sold at school for £1.00 per item and ALL profits are put into the PTFA funds.

Due to the recent change in school uniform, we do not currently have any items in the Uniform Shop.  However, we hope that during the course of this academic year we will be able to restock and reopen before the end of the Summer Term.  If and when you have any unwanted logo uniform or purple summer dresses you would like to donate, please drop them into the school office.  The PTFA really appreciate your support with this initiative.  It is fantastic that unwanted items can be reused.

Old Uniform Donations

We would like to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who kindly donated their old school uniforms over the summer to be packaged up and sent off to schools in Ghana.  It is fantastic to see the items being used for such a fantastic cause.

Stikins Commission

Thank you to all those who are continuing to support the Stikins commission scheme.  When ordering name labels please visit www.stikins.co.uk and include our unique school commission number which is 9625.

Raffle Prizes

We are seeking raffle prizes for this years fundraisers.  If you or any of your places of employment are able to make a donation please contact the school office.
