Message from the PTFA
We would like to welcome you all to a new school year and to Cottam Primary School's Parent Teacher & Friends Association. All parents of children at the school become members of the PTFA, which exists to support and advance the education of all the pupils.
How do we support the children and the school?
The PTFA meets at least twice a term to discuss and arrange a mixture of social and fund-raising activities throughout the school year. Like most schools we hold a Christmas Fair and Summer BBQ, which are our primary fund raisers. Money raised contributes to the cost of library books, online-based mathematics software, as well as to other resources not normally funded from the basic school budget. In some cases these activities become free and in others the costs are greatly reduced to make them affordable. Over previous years we have organised discos for the children and held an Easter Bingo Evening.
What can a all parents do?
By joining in the activities of the PTFA you can find out more about how the school works and get to know other parents and staff at the school. You will also be enhancing the facilities, fundraising for extra resources and helping the pupils to receive a richer education. There’s also a definite possibility of having fun and making friends at the same time. Some members come regularly to meetings, others offer help for functions, whilst others may not have so much time to offer but make donations to appeals for raffle and tombola prizes.
All help is gratefully received.
