PFA (Parents & Friends Association)

There is an increasing body of research available that recognises the important role parents play in their children’s education and the link this has to the child’s success in school.

The PFA (Parents and Friends Association) is a valuable asset to the school and can be a source of innovation and can also help provide additional people to help deliver an event, project or initiative.

School’s are increasingly looking at ways to increase income and our PFA fully supports that and raised over £3,000 last year which the children have asked to be spent on new equipment for the playground, including a new stage and some monkey bars.

Bearwood School Parents Friends Association is a registered charity. No. 1077429 and can be found on Facebook at www.facebook.com/BearwoodPFA 

How can you help?

All parents, teachers and friends of the school can get involved, even if they only have a small amount of time available.

We organise many events throughout the year including, coffee mornings, Summer/Christmas Fayres, Bookwalks, Bearwood’s Got Talent and the School Disco.

By just supporting these events you are contributing to the PFA but if you are willing to help out at any events or can offer any expertise that would be very much appreciated.

Matched Giving or Matched Funding is a simple way of maximising the fundraising efforts. Not all companies offer matched funding but those that do (normally banks, building societies and large companies) will pledge a sum of money relating to the amount their employee has raised for or donated to the charity of their choice. Some organisations will match fund on a £ for £ basis, others will stipulate what they are prepared to give. Some companies will also pledge time and resources instead of money, so enabling their employees to support a cause during their working week.
