Bentley School PTFA is a registered charitable body made up of, and supported by, parents, teachers and friends of Bentley Primary School.
Bentley School PTFA exists to raise money for the benefit of all the children at the school, to complement their education and to give facilities over and above those provided by the Local Education Authority. We do this by organising fundraising events that are fun, enhance community spirit and provide social entertainment for the children and parents alike. All parents are automatically members of the PTFA and we encourage everyone to get involved in some way.
Every penny we raise goes towards making our school the outstanding place it is and gives our children the added extras that so many other schools are unable to provide. We have a regular commitment of funding the maintenance of the additional school minibus. This alone totals more than £3,000 per annum.
This year we have set a high target for fundraising. By the end of the school year we hope to have raised enough to purchase a new minibus and are certainly well on our way having run the Bentley Ball and Promises Auction which took place in March.
To achieve this we rely on our parents and friends of the school donating their free time and baking, buying, eating, drinking, quizzing, promising, cycling, dancing, donating and bouncing!
The important thing to remember is that everything we do is for the direct benefit of ALL of our children. We ensure that whatever we spend money on, there is a direct link to improving our children’s experience and learning in their time spent at Bentley Primary School.
