Fulbourn Primary School Parents, Teachers and Friends Association (PTfA)
We are a group of parents who support the school by organising social events and passing all funds raised to the school for the direct benefit of the children. In the past our funds have paid for a range of resources including books, musical instruments, computers and garden equipment. Over the last two years, the PTFA have successfully raised £57,000 to fund an improved playground and outdoor learning space.
The PTfA Committee and being a member
As a committee, we have three leading positions: Chair, Treasurer, and Secretary. These roles steer the co-ordination of PTfA events and link closely on a regular basis with the Head teachers and the Men in Schools group. We are always looking for more helpers and new ideas to bring to the PTfA. All talents are welcome and there are opportunities to help as little or as much as you can.
The current PTfA consists of Fran Parris, mum to Zoe (Year 3) and James (Reception); Laura Boxall, mum to Ellie (Year 3) and Harrison (Reception); John Beresford, grandad of Tilly (Year 4) and Annabelle (Year 3), and Teresa Lewis, mum to Elliot (Year 4). Ms. Richman continues as the school's PTfA teacher liaison.
The PTfA meets regularly at The Six Bells to plan activities such as discos, quizzes and social gatherings, and as well as take part in the running of events. It is a great way to get involved in school life, meet other parents, have some fun and support our children through fundraising!

We are pleased to announce that Amazon™ Wish Lists are now available for each class.
If you click on the name of your child's class below, the link will take you straight to the Wish List on the Amazon website.
What is an Amazon™ Wish List?
Each class teacher has set up a list of classroom resources their class needs on Amazon™. Items on the list vary from class to class and range in price from 99p up to £50.
Why is the school launching Amazon™ class lists?
As we are all aware, school budgets are currently very tight and need to cover a wide range of expenses. There are many ways in which parents can help support the school.
In line with our healthy eating policy, the school is encouraging parents not to bring in sweets for their child/ren’s classmates when celebrating birthdays. The Amazon™ class lists provide an alternative for parents if they wish.
Class lists provide another way for parents and family members who may wish to support their child/ren’s individual class needs. Please feel free to pass this guide on to your family and friends if they would like to purchase items from your child/ren’s class list.
How does it work?
Simply click on the name of your child's class below and the link will take you straight to the relevant page on the Amazon website.

Do you frequently make purchases from Amazon? Using Amazon Smile won't cost you anymore, but it will help the PTfA! When you go to Amazon, type https://smile.amazon.co.uk into your browser, then select Fulbourn PTfA as your designated charity. A fraction of a percentage of your purchase will then be donated to the PTfA. It's a small step that adds up quickly!
The PTfA can receive donations through our Just Giving page. You can make a one-off payment or set up a monthly direct debit following the instructions.
If you have any queries about how to use the Amazon™ class lists, Amazon Smile, or Just Giving, please get in touch with Fran or Laura, or drop in and speak to Sadie in the office. Thank you for your ongoing support to Fulbourn Primary School.
