Welcome to the Carfield Friends PTA page.
Carfield Friends PTA is the Parent and Teacher Association for Carfield Primary School and a registered charity (charity number 1183465). We fundraise and organize fun events throughout the school year to enrich the educational experience for every single child at Carfield Primary School.
As the parents of the children at Carfield we are all part of this supportive body however small or large the role we play. Everyone is most definitely welcome in the PTA and there are many ways to help out (without fear of signing your life away!) from simply registering with PTASocial (an event organizing platform we use) or following us on the Carfield Friends PTA Facebook and Twitter pages and sharing our posts and tweets to volunteering at one of the school events for a short time, putting up posters, or sharing ideas at a meeting.
The money we raise goes towards upgrades and extras for the school. Our current big projects are soundproofing the canteens, creating an inspiring library to be the heart of the school, developing the wildlife garden as an outside teaching space, and improving the playgrounds. In addition to which, we also put on discos for the children, run the Christmas Fair, organize the Christmas cards drawn by the children, organise quiz and games evenings for adults, annually invite the Lempen Theatre to perform and do workshops for the whole school, not to mention the numerous bake sales and supplying refreshments for various external events within the wider community! You can also help raise funds for school by signing up to ‘Easy Fundraising’ and Carfield Friends will receive free donations when you shop online at over 4000 retailers. Click here to find out more.
We are also fundraising for Sheffield Children’s Hospital via The Bears of Sheffield.
It sounds like a lot of work but actually it’s a lot of fun and many hands make it easy.
Please take a moment to have a look at our little corner of the school website for more information.
