About the PTFA

The principal role of the PTFA (Parents, Teachers, Friends Association) at Newton Poppleford Primary School is to support the school and its children, particularly through fund-raising activities, allowing the funding of school trips, classroom resources, and educational experiences. All parents, carers, staff and governors from the school are automatically members, and other friends of the school can become members.

The PTFA is registered as a charity under the name “Newton Poppleford School Association” with charity number #1015155. The PTFA is run by a committee who are elected each year by PTFA members at the Annual General Meeting. Regular PTFA meetings are held throughout the year and all members are invited to attend. The PTFA always welcomes suggestions for future activities and events and any significant expenditure must be voted on by the parents and teachers present at a PTFA meeting.

The PTFA follows a model constitution provided by PTA-UK.


We have been continuing our ongoing WhatsApp virtual meeting, which has proven very effective, and is ongoing. But we are looking forward to face to face meetings and events again this year! The details of meetings will be communicated through School Matters, the parents Facebook group, and the PTFA WhatsApp meeting. Anyone who wishes to join the WhatsApp group should contact the Chair (Teri) on 07909 798441.
