Dear Parent / Guardian,


Re: Parent Teacher Friends Association of Northway


As a School we are very excited to share that we are re-launching our PTA to include ‘Friends’… PTFA.  To make this work, we really need you!

 A PTFA is a great way to bring together parents, teachers and our local community to raise funds and to support the school.  As a member of the PTFA, meetings are arranged to decide what the association wants to achieve for school over a year and then to start planning exciting family and parent events to raise funds that go directly the enhance the experience of every Northway child.  A PTFA is as much about fun engagement as it is about fundraising but fun and fundraising are the two core aims.


Communication / Email

 We have a new email address:  Once we have an elected Chair and Secretary they will have access to this new address which will allow communication to be smooth.  This email is not for general school communication but for anything related to the PTFA and its events.  The PTFA will not be able to answer any general questions regarding school or classes.  Very soon we will also have a brand new Twitter, Facebook and Insta account to keep everyone updated with PTFA news.  All other social media and email accounts are no longer associated with Northway Primary and Nursery School.


How to get involved

 As a parent at Northway, you are all automatically members!  This is fantastic news!  This will give you access to many events and experiences during the year as well as the opportunity to become an elected member of the PTFA.  Would you like to apply to become an Officer:

 The President (Head Teacher of the School)  (the Headteacher will also appoint a nominated teacher)

  • Chairperson
  • Secretary
  • Treasurer
  • Social Media Officer
  • Committee Members
  • The Office Holders will be elected at the Annual General Meeting (Emergency AGM – Tuesday 16th March 2021 at 6.30pm on Zoom). Office Bearers will hold office for two years, being eligible for re-election.



 As a member of the PTFA you will agree to and have a duty of care in regard to Safeguarding and Child Protection.  Whilst assisting at PTFA events, Safeguarding Policies, including GPDR (Data protection) must be adhered to.


And finally…

 We want to encourage everyone to support our PTFA either as an elected Officer, Committee Member or Association Member.  The higher the profile of the PTFA, the more opportunities the children of Northway will benefit from.  We would love to encourage new members and newer parents to school to stand, as well as our older friends.  Everyone is important and the enthusiasm of all is required!

 School will be taking a real interest in our PTFA ad working together with the Committee will ensure that ‘together, we can achieve anything.’
