About the PTFA

My name is Shelley Tilling and I have the amazing role of being the chair of Queensgate Foundation PTFA.

The PTFA (Parents, Teachers and Friends Association) are a dedicated group of parents and teaching staff who work together to raise money to enhance the learning experience and environment of the children in tandem with the school.

We fundraise by having many events during the school year including Christmas and Summer Fayres, Easter cake sales, mufti days, discos, film nights, Year 6 Enterprise project and our ever growing Queensgate Fun Run.

Due to these events, Queensgate have recently purchased a minibus, wooden play equipment for outside play areas, friendship benches and reading/library books. As well as our bigger projects, we provide extra items for the children's enjoyment, for example, Year 6 leavers books and waterproofs for our Reception children-so they can learn outside whatever the weather.

Our current fundraising project is an Outdoor Learning Environment, which will, by using this alongside the pond area and gardens surrounding it, enable children of all year groups to be able to experience a familiarity with and appreciation of nature and will allow them to explore the world around them.

If you wish to join the PTFA or you have an enquiry or a fundraising idea, please email ptfa@queensgateprimary.co.uk

Our forthcoming events are advertised on the Weekly Newsletter
