PTFA

I hope because you have taken the time to click on us, you maybe interested in joining or helping in some way. We are a friendly group of parents who enjoy supporting and being involved within our school in many different ways.

*NEXT MEETING: Wednesday 16th November at 6.30pm in the School Library*

(See AGM documents below for more information)

Our PTFA has made a big difference to our school, for instance, we have raised thousands of pounds over the last few years and funded to name just a few, the following areas:-

  • Duke of Edinburgh Award (which gets no government funding) - tents and equipment
  • Books and magazine subscriptions for the Library
  • Extra art and textile equipment
  • Equipment for the PE Department and their team kits

So we do really make a difference.

USH Minibus

Launch of the PTFA Minibus Appeal!

Over the last few years, the USH PTFA has successfully raised funds in support of a number of projects at the school. Now the need has been identified for the school to secure two new minibuses and the PTFA has agreed to raise £5000 towards the total cost of the second one. We’ll be organising several fund raising events.

Some parents may also choose to donate money specifically towards the minibus appeal. For further details, please download the PTFA Minibus Appeal and Gift Aid pdfs. This is a BIG project and so we would love to hear from anyone who has new ideas, business sponsorship, matched funding, or just wants to be involved to help us achieve our goal!

Finally being involved is very rewarding.

The PTFA is just one of the partnerships within the school and as you will have seen over the past few months, Upper Shirley High is moving forward with lots of positive changes and wishes to enhance more on the parent partnership. We want to involve parents more, asking your opinions of what works and what doesn’t and we feel this can be achieved through building on the work through the PTFA.

So please if you want to know more or get involved in anyway please use the contact button to send us a note.
