PTA

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. 

 

We always welcome ideas for fundraising events – so please tell us what sort of events you would like us to organise and would support!

Details of any events being organised and minutes of PTA Committee meetings are posted in the PTA section of the school’s website https://fulford.york.sch.uk/pta/ .

 

Please email our current chairperson, Helen Poulsen (hdpoulsen@gmail.com), if you want to know more. We always need new volunteers on the PTA so if you’d be able to help please get in touch. The level of your involvement is up to you – even just an hour per term would help us out!

We have a selection of second hand uniform items available for purchase priced at about a third of the cost of new uniform.  Covid allowing, we aim to have a stall at the Transition evening for Year 6 students and also at the Parents Evenings for Year 7 and Year 8.

 

Or you can contact Helen by email on hekruse@hotmail.co.uk at any time if you require a specific item.

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: hekruse@hotmail.co.uk.

Pre-covid, the PTA sold refreshments on Tuesday and Thursday evenings to people who attend Evening Classes at the school, and we hope to do so again in future.

 

If you can offer your help, please contact us via the refreshments usual contact suerosser@hotmail.com .

Effortless fundraising at no cost to yourself!

 

  1. Fulford PTA is a registered good cause on easyfundraising.co.uk. This is an easy and free way to raise money for your child’s school.  By registering with easyfundraising and selecting Fulford PTA York as your good cause you will raise funds simply by shopping online. You can shop with over 2700 top retailers, and with each purchase made, a donation (as a proportion of the sales price) will go to Fulford PTA. You don’t pay anything extra.

 

Please register at http://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/fulfordpta and support us when you shop online.

 

 

2. We are also registered as a charity on Amazon Smile and this works in the same way. A small proportion of the purchase price will be donated to Fulford PTA.

 

Please access the site here https://smile.amazon.co.uk and set Fulford School Parent Teachers Association as your chosen charity.

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 (hdpoulsen@gmail.com).

 

We look forward to meeting you and hope that you and your sons and daughters will thoroughly enjoy their time at Fulford.

 

The PTA Committee
