Who are the PTFA?
All parents, guardians and carers of any child currently attending the school and all current staff, teaching and non-teaching, are automatically members of Kyson’s PTFA. We are also a charitable organisation (Charity No.:1126362) and our constitution can be found here.
What does the PTFA Do?
The PTFA has two main aims:
- To raise funds for the school to pay for items that will benefit the school environment
and children's learning. Without this vital support, the school’s budget would become
overstretched to the disadvantage of your children’s education. All money the PTFA
raises is spent on things that the school needs to improve your child's education or
for those extra added-value items that give our children a great social life too!
- To encourage a positive relationship between the school and our families. It’s really
important to us to have a strong connection with all our families and have some fun
together! We hope you enjoy the events we put on and that they help you to feel
more connected to the school and this key part of your children’s life.
