Welcome to Mordiford PTFA.
Every parent, teacher and friend of the school is a member, and each year we attempt to raise at least £6,000 for school.
Amongst other things, this pays for:
£1,400 bus transport to take the children swimming each week
£1,400 towards Year Group trips to enhance curriculum topics
£1,400 on whole-school Christmas trips
Without the PTFA fundraising, every parent would need to pay more for their children to have these opportunities. School budgets are increasingly tight, so money goes directly to support the creative curriculum and the extras that make Mordiford such a lovely place to learn. Every cake sale, coffee morning or raffle ticket you contribute towards means more experiences for all the children at school. Thank you for all your support.
EASY WAYS TO HELP
A low-cost lottery with a good chance of a prize — although you may not become a millionaire! It costs £12 per ticket per year. 50% of the proceeds go towards the fundraising total for the year, and 50% is paid out in cash prizes. Tickets are drawn every month for 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes in school assemblies — a fun way for the children to feel involved if you win!

Rags to Riches
Regular collections of your outgrown and unwanted clothes earned us over £400 last year. Look out for collections in autumn and spring.
Raffle Tickets and Prizes
We hold at least one fundraising raffle every year, and need donations of brilliant prizes to help us sell as many as possible. Local businesses are often really generous and we promote them in return. If you’re willing to ask a contact, we’d love your help.
Each year group is encouraged to run one event per year to help us meet our fundraising target. Some events are aimed at the children having fun, such as the autumn Spooky Disco, Easter Egg hunt or regular kids’ movie nights, some are family events such as Bonfire Night, summer fetes and family bingo and we also have events and socials for grown-ups only. If you have a great idea it can be as large or small as you like — please do get involved. Your time and enthusiasm is greatly appreciated.
MEETINGS & CONTACT US
All parents, grandparents, friends and family of children at the school are very welcome at every meeting.
We currently hold 2 meetings per term – one evening meeting, 7.30 pm at the Bunch of Carrots pub (upstairs), and one informal afternoon meeting at school. Minutes for the evening meetings are circulated via your class rep, and also on ParentPay.
Each year group has a rep who can pass on your comments and suggestions, you can send us a message via Facebook, or you can email us: firstname.lastname@example.org
Newsletters are sent out once per term with the latest news on fundraising, and copies can be downloaded here.
