Who Are We?
When your child starts at Holy Trinity you automatically become part of the PTFA. You are free to attend any PTFA meeting or event, and your ideas and help are always welcome. As a member of PTA UK and a registered charity we are obliged to have a formal committee.
Who is your PTFA?
Chair: Jen Vincent
Vice Chair: Leanne Cass
Treasurer: Zoe Rumsey
Secretary: Julie Haylock
Other Committee Members:
Elisa Edney, Dave Edney, Karl Handy, Toni Beal.
Role of the Committee
Our PTFA committee consists of 4 Officers (Chair, Vice Chair, Treasurer and Secretary). We also have committee members to make up the full committee. The full Committee meet on a regular basis usually once a month.
Annual General Meeting (AGM)
Our Annual General Meeting is held at the beginning of the academic year and this is an opportunity for all parents to come along and hear in more detail about events run, funds raised and how the money has been spent. It is also the occasion when we elect our new committee and in particular the 4 officers.
Support from Parentkind
Our PTA is a member of Parentkind, which is the national charity that advances education and supports PTAs, throughout England, Wales and Northern Ireland. We pay an annual membership fee to Parentkind which gives us lots of member benefits including subscription linked insurance cover, support and advice on PTA and fundraising matters, opportunities to meet with other PTAs to discuss and share experiences, regular newsletters and the PTA magazine, a special banking package to help us make the most of our funds, and an extensive list of PTA information and resources. In addition, we have a valuable resource at our fingertips – www.parentkind.org.uk
www.parentkind.org.uk is also a valuable resource to you as parents, with signposts to useful, relevant web-sites on subjects such as bullying, school funding, special educational needs, homework, and much much more.
