Parent and Friends Association (PFA)

As a school, we warmly encourage a family environment, as we know children learn best when there are strong relationships between home and school. The PFA meet regularly at school to discuss fund ideas and activities that they can organise for the children, parents and staff. They provide support to the school in many ways and have worked hard to ensure the children have opportunities and extra benefits such as:

  • New books and access to our Bug Club online reading resource
  • Outside play equipment
  • Trips to the pantomime
  • Leavers’ Hoodies

The PFA organise fundraising and social events including summer, Easter and Christmas fairs, auctions, barbecues, breakfasts and discos. In 2018 children and staff enjoyed a Christmas buffet lunch prepared by the PFA; and the children made nature angels with their members for display at St Mary’s Church as part of the ‘Angel Host Festival’.

Now the PFA team are in full swing organising the Thorncombe School Fete which will be held on Saturday 6th July 2019.

New members are always very welcome to join the next meeting for a friendly and worthwhile get together!
