We would like to take this opportunity to introduce the Westcott PFA (Parents & Friends Association). Westcott PFA is now a registered charity (Registered charity Number 1152127). The PFA team of trustees and committee members work hard throughout the year to raise money to raise funds for the school. The fundraising by the PFA has paid for items such as laptops for Years 1 and 2, a new public address system, school trips, an extensive range of toys – for both inside & outside play and the Forest School
The PFA also funds events and contributes to the cost of coaches for school trips. The funding provides regular income to the School Council to allow the children to decide together what they think would be useful to have at school.
The PFA successfully raised £20,000 to enable new school building to be constructed but we are still raising money to equip the classrooms with extra learning resources, and update the outside areas.
If you can’t attend meetings but have fundraising ideas or issues that you would like to raise or would like to become a member of the PFA, then please talk to any of the current PFA committee and/or Charity Trustees or email email@example.com
Check out ‘Westcott PFA’ on Facebook for more information and regular updates.

Get involved in Westcott PFA
Please approach any one of the committee if you would like to get involved – either by joining the PFA or by offering help at any one of our many events throughout the year. We have a clearly marked postbox at the front of the school for all communication and order forms.
The PFA meet once or twice a term for a couple of hours to discuss ideas and plan events. If you can’t commit to joining the PFA you can still help! At many of the events we hold we need good raffle prizes and volunteers so please let a member of the PFA know if you can supply any prizes or time.
