Our next fundraiser will be the School Summer Fair which is planned for Saturday 30 June 2018 between 2pm and 4pm.  It is free entry and as usual there will be lots to see and do; bouncy castle, a variety of stalls, refreshments, cakes, hotdogs, crafts and Pongo the Pony will be providing rides. 

If you are interested in running a stall, please download, complete and return this form to us either by email or post:

We are also asking for donations of new/used gifts for our raffle and tombola as well as full and empty screw-top bottles for our ‘water to wine’ stall. 

We are fundraising for our Y6 leavers and an end of year party for the children.  Please do scroll down this page of our website for more details of up and coming fundraising events and other bits of information about the PTFA.

PTFA (Parent, Teacher, Friends Association of Mattersey Primary School)

There many different ways you can help with the PTFA; whether you have lots of time to offer or not.

Some of the roles are time-consuming, although also rewarding. If you can’t commit to a big job, look out for things you can do less frequently (eg running a stall at the summer fair, baking for a cake sale). And you can always support PTFA events by simply turning up.

Mattersey Primary has a Parent Teacher Friend Association (PTFA), which is an organisation of parents and staff. Its role is to encourage closer links between home and school. PTAs are best known for their fundraising work, but they have a useful social function too. Fundraising events provide an opportunity for parents, staff and pupils to get together.

At Mattersey all parents/carers and teachers are automatically members of the PTFA.

Our PTFA holds our annual general meeting at the start of each calendar year. At this meeting a committee is elected to run the PTFA – usually consisting of a chair, a vice-chair, a treasurer, a secretary and ordinary committee members. These ordinary members include at least one, and often two, parents from each class as 'class reps'. Their job is to pass on information from the PTA to other parents in their child’s class.

PTA committees usually meet once a month and set up smaller working groups to organise individual events.

Our PTFA raises money through events. We often hold one main event each school term – for example, a Christmas fair in the winter, an Easter raffle in the spring, and a summer fair. Other PTFA events include craft events, discos, non-uniform days, cake sales and many more. We are always looking for new fundraising ideas.

Funds raised by the PTFA are intended to provide ‘extras’ not already provided by the school's main income – often 'fun things' that make learning more interesting and exciting.

The PTFA committee and the headteacher decide how to spend PTFA funds. Common items include computers, playground equipment, books and other smaller purchases such as presents for Father Christmas to distribute, Easter eggs, or prizes for competitions.

Our PTFA was relaunched in September 2015 in order to advance education by encouraging the fullest cooperation between home and school and to act as a voice for the needs of the children and the school itself. 

Our vision:
The vision of the PTFA, here at Mattersey, is to enhance the education and futures of our children.  

Our mission:

  • To be a voice for all parents, teachers and friends in strengthening our children’s education
  • To provide credible, well researched and authoritative support to the school
  • To enable our PTFA to achieve more and serve their community
  • To innovate and inspire

 Our values:

  • To be experts in all we do
  • To act with integrity
  • To support the school
  • To be innovative
