Parents and Friends Association:
Welcome to the St James's Parents and Friends Association (PFA) page. Every parent or guardian of a child attending St James's Primary School is automatically a member of our PFA, led by a committee who plan fundraising initiatives and events. St James's PFA plays a critical role in supporting the quality of education for our children by fundraising for supplies and equipment whilst also bringing together the community of the school.
The Objective of the PFA:
The object of the PFA is to advance the education of the pupils at St James's school, by providing and assisitng in the provision of facilities for education at the school.
As an ancillary to the School, the PFA's objectives are to:
more extended relationships between the staff, parents and others associated with the School
in activities which support the school and advance the education of the pupils attending it
funds and invite and receive contributions from any person or persons
Past fundraising successes include the purchase of new playground equipment, lunch tables, stations of the cross and the building of the Pilgrim Hall.
We also provide all children making their First Holy Communion with a commemorative gift and part fund the year 6 leavers activities.
The PFA also organise Donate for Digital Lottery , a lottery whereby the money raised goes specifically to supporting the IT equipment. To date, the Lottery has enabled the school to install new WIFI infrastructure and IPads and digital whiteboards in all classrooms.
