One more term left to try to hit our £10,000 fundraising target!

The total currently stands at a staggering £7,681. Wow!!!!

Thank you so much to everyone who has contributed so far, this is an amazing achievement, but we're not done yet! Keep collecting sponsors for the children's sponsored events and don't forget you can set up a Just Giving page. Also, please continue selling raffle tickets, extras are available from your class teacher. Put the Summer Fete in your diary, Friday 29th June! 

The work of the PTFA (Parent Teacher Friends Association) is invaluable to the School, enriching the quality of education and School environment for our children. All parents are automatically members of the PTFA. The Association's activities are organised by a committee of parents who are elected at a general meeting each year. It enables groups of parents to meet together with the aim of supporting and maintaining the positive relationship between parents and the School.

Through numerous fund raising events in recent years the PTFA has been able to commission the Millennium Garden, purchase staging for our School performances, purchase computers and printers, carpets and furniture for classrooms, outdoor play equipment and numerous smaller items for the children and teachers to

The Committee organises parental help for our School functions and during each year organises fund raising activities such as the Summer Fete.

Newton Poppleford Primary School, in the heart of rural East Devon, is over 130 years old. The old school house is no longer fit for purpose and a new school is currently being built on the existing school site. Although the cost of the new building is being funded by the Education Funding Agency,  funding does not cover the cost of many new items needed in the school that cannot be transferred out of the old school or which have been declared as not fit for purpose.

Funding is required for a huge number of things including: a stage for performances in the new bigger hall; various pieces of gym equipment; furniture for the school reception area and staff room; display boards for communal areas; new signage; outdoor play equipment; shelter and shading for the new playground; playground markings; an outdoor class room for Early Years; curtains or classroom window blinds plus much more.

The PTFA has set a challenge to raise at least £10,000 towards these costs and aims to achieve this through a number of fund raising initiatives.  

A selection of year 6 students will be participating in the Exmoor walking challenge next spring, we will be holding local sponsored activities for all the school children to take part in, a selection of parents & teachers will be running in a 10 km race in March 2018 and many individual parents are doing their own personal challenges. This is in addition to our usual fund raising activities which include our Christmas and summer fetes as well as our ‘Pudding and Quiz’ night and our recent involvement on the local Guy Fawkes night event in our village.

We need the local community, local businesses, parent, friends and family to help support these fund raising events.

We really hope that you will be able to help us by supporting us in our challenge by either donating here or sponsoring one of our upcoming activities.
