Hello my name is Karen and I have held the position of Chair of the PTFA for the past 5 years.  I currently have no children at Northdown School , however all my children have attended the school.  I have continued as a member of the PTFA as I have made lots of friends.  We all enjoy having fun and raising much needed funds for the children.  It is also very rewarding to see the  children enjoying themselves at the events we hold.

Elected PTFA members April 2013 (each member will hold office until April 2014)

Chair: Karen Hamer

Vice Chair: Dave Holland

Treasurer: Sally Potter

Secretary: Amanda Shaw

There is also a loyal group of people who volunteer their time each week to help raise funds for the children.

At our last Annual General Meeting (AGM) the PTFA had raised £3,400

Where some of the money was spent:

School Trips

PTFA Enterprise Cup - classes help raise funds for their class by running their own stalls at the Christmas Fair

Money towards furnishing the new Early Years building


As parents/carers you are AUTOMATICALLY a member of the PTFA and we really do need your SUPPORT.  It is TOTALLY flexible and you do not have to attend PTFA meetings - there are a variety of ways you can help....

  • setting up and clearing up at an event
  • help run stalls at our Christmas or Summer Fairs
  • help with our discos
  • or maybe you have a skill that would be useful to the PTFA



Just 30 minutes of your time would be INVALUABLE to the PTFA, and if we all gave up 30 minutes of our time just think what we could achieve.

Please come along to our coffee morning which are held on the first Tuesday of every month between 9.00am and 10.00am.
