Who are we?
The St Jude’s Parents and Families Association are a group of parents and friends who regularly get together to organise events and raise additional funds for the benefit of the school and the pupils. We meet roughly once a month, usually at 7.30pm in the school staff room. Exact dates can be found on the newsletter, PFA noticeboard and here on the website. New members and ideas are always welcome.
We understand that not everyone has the time to commit to regular meetings, and so have been working over the past few years to try to build up a bank of volunteers who we can call on for specific events, such as discos or the summer fair. If you think this could apply to you then we'd love to hear from you. We can be contacted at any time via our email address firstname.lastname@example.org
What do we do?
We see our role as a mixture of fundraising for those additional extras which are not available in the school budget, and organising activities which are sociable and fun. Most recently we have contributed funds towards the new Year 1 out door area, and prior to this the Key Stage 1 kitchen, funding forest school sessions and author visits. We could not do this without the support of teachers, parents and pupils in attending events and spending your money.
With the uncertainty of Covid we are currently looking at how we can adapt some of our usual events to suit social distancing guidelines - we are also open to any new ideas for the current times - watch this space...
Meeting dates for the year are yet to be confirmed.
