Firs Farm Association (PTA)

What is the FFA and what do we do?

The role of the FFA is to encourage closer links between home and school. PTAs are best known for their fundraising work, but they have an important social function too. Our events help build a sense of community for the children, staff and parents of Firs Farm School

Yearly events we hold include:


A FREE Mr Marvel event for Reception to welcome new children & parents, a Halloween Disco, Christmas Fayre, Pamper Night, a Family Bingo Night and our ever popular Summer Fayre. Our 2023 Summer Fayre had a Fiesta twist  - we had fabulous weather and Poppy from Trolls even made an appearance. Ofcourse we expect 2024 to be bigger and better than ever!


NEW events for 2024 will be a Glow Disco and Ice Cream Fridays from May-July! We also put on numerous tea/coffee mornings, Pre-Loved Uniform and Book sales and the always popular Tuck Shop.


In previous years we have also held a Spring Craft Fayre and a Coronation Food Festival but we like to try to keep things fresh and fun and are always thinking up new ideas to keep events interesting!


Who can join and what commitment is required?

All parents/carers of children at our school can be involved with the PTA, should they wish. We appreciate all help - be it volunteering time on a stall at one of our Fayre's, donating items for raffle prizes or coming along to our regular PTA meetings and tea/coffee mornings.


If you would like to come along to a PTA meeting, help out at an upcoming event, or suggest ways to raise or spend funds, it would be great to hear from you! Please see the 'Contact' section below.


Our social media details are also listed below under 'Follow us on Social Media' - please follow us and like and share our posts - this all helps us to be seen and ensures our events are as successful as possible. Just doing these simple actions really helps promote us within the school and local community. This helps us to raise the funds needed to provide the extras to enhance the children’s learning journey.


What do we spend funds on?

We work with the school to provide the finance for areas not covered by the school’s standard budget. The main criteria is that areas to be funded should benefit as many children as possible. 

In recent years, funding raised by the FFA has gone towards:


  • Renovation of the school library;
  • New play kitchens for reception classrooms;
  • School visits from authors;
  • Assistance with funds to put on Science Week, Literacy Week and Art Week for the whole school;
  • Musical instruments for all years;
  • Pantomimes for the children to watch;
  • A cash Christmas gift for each class to spend on games/educational toys; and
  • Various other items such as books, reception equipment & PE equipment.


Our current big fundraising project is the renovation of our school playground and play equipment. We have lots of ideas at making this an amazing space for the children to use for their development - there is lots to do but we are committed to ensuring a fantastic end result so watch this space!


Charitable status

In 2018, the FFA became a registered charity. This means that we are able to apply for fund matching and other grants such as our Aviva Community Fund campaign.


This also means that we have slightly more formal committee roles.

For 2023/24 we have 16 Trustees in total, with 6 main roles:

Chair - Christina

Vice Chair - Loukia

Treasurer - Bernard

Vice Treasurer - Melek

Secretary - Katerina

Communications - Emily
