We’d like to say hello and welcome to all new pupils and their parents and carers.
All parents/carers of children in the school are automatically members of the PTA, so we hope that you will want to be involved in some way.
One of our main roles is to raise money for things that pupils will enjoy using, as well as items which the school might otherwise be unable to afford. We try to arrange a number of events across the year, as well as running the Adult Education refreshments and 200 Club. All the money raised by the PTA goes towards equipment for the school which will directly benefit and be used by pupils. These have included flip cams for Modern Foreign Languages, video cams used by the English and Drama departments, athletics vests, new pans for the Food Studies department, a contribution towards African drums for the Music department, an extra heavy duty A3 trimmer for the Art department, a spirometer for the Science Department, equipment for the Bridge Club – the list goes on! Any department in the school can ask for funds from the PTA – we try to support as many of these requests as we can. Last year, all our efforts were focused on the challenge to raise enough money to buy a new minibus for the school. We were delighted that the school was able to take delivery of the new minibus on the 50th Anniversary of the school opening.
We always welcome ideas for fundraising events – so please tell us what sort of events you would like us to organise and would support!
This is a valuable source of funds which, at the same time, gives you a chance to win one of the monthly draws, with the winning number each month receiving prize money. The cost is £12 per number, which is then entered into each draw, giving you 12 chances to win. The more people who have numbers, the greater the amount of prize money is. This is a fun and easy way to support the school.
To join and boost the monthly jackpot, please complete the application form which outlines how the Club works and either fill in the standing order mandate or pay by cheque and send it with the application form to school marked ‘200 Club’.
The contact email for enquiries is: email@example.com.

The PTA sells refreshments on Tuesday and Thursday evenings to people who attend Evening Classes at the school. We serve tea/coffee/cold drinks and biscuits – the time commitment is
7 pm – 8.30 pm once or twice a term on a Tuesday or a Thursday (the more people we have on the rota, the fewer times you will be asked to help out!).
If you can offer your help, please contact Debra at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Owing to a number of committee members leaving, as their children have now left Fulford School, we need some new faces on the PTA Committee. The time commitment is not that great – 1 to 2 meetings per term, generally held at school, plus any extra help that you feel you can offer at events we are putting on.
The AGM is held yearly in October, when we elect the new Committee. If you are interested in finding out what we’re about, do come along to the AGM – it is open to every parent/carer of pupils attending the school.
If you are interested in joining the Committee and would like further information about it, please contact Helen (email@example.com).
We look forward to meeting you and hope that you and your sons and daughters will thoroughly enjoy their time at Fulford.
