All parents are automatically members of the PTA whilst their child is a pupil at Fairfield Infant School.
We hope to hold events and fundraising schemes during the year to support the school, details of which will be posted on this website and sent home with your child.
The PTA makes a significant contribution towards the life of the school; please come along and support the PTA – it is great fun!
Last year, the PTA helped to fund our brand new exciting activity trail which is a great addition for our children.
Interested in the PTA? We are always looking for helpers to join us on the committee. Only a few informal meetings during the year, a great way to get involved in your child's school, raise money and make new friends!

WE NEED YOU!
Plans are moving forward quickly for this year’s Strawberry Fayre on Saturday 17th June, and we are on the lookout for volunteers to help with various activities at the Fayre. We really do welcome any offers of help, however big or small, and would be delighted to hear from you.
If you are able to help out at this important fundraiser for the school, please let us know how and when, by completing the Parentmail form sent out today, letting us know if you are free to help and let us know if there are any particular skills you have or stalls you’d like to volunteer on.
We will then get back to you about how we’d like you to help. The more people we have to help, the more stands we’ll be able to have, and so the more money we will make......…
We are really grateful to everyone who has already volunteered and registered their interest so far!

The PTA are running a film night for children on Friday 9th December 2022 from the end of the school day, until 4:30pm.
A light snack of juice, a biscuit and popcorn will be provided during the session. Children will do some Christmas themed activities in classes before watching a short Christmas film with their friends.
The Christmas film we are watching is: Elf Pets Santa’s Reindeer Rescue.
There will be a charge of £3.00 for this event and all profits will be used to support the school in their Computing opportunities.
If your child would like to attend, please complete the tear off slip with the information flyer sent home this week and return it to school completed and with £3 cash enclosed
The PTA will be holding a preloved book sale on Thursday 3rd March at pick up in the playground. Please help us by donating any books you no longer want. These can be any books, not just children’s books. We will be putting a box outside school reception every day next week (From 14th February) to collect these and they will be picked up by the PTA at the end of each day.
Congratulations and a BIG Thank you to our newly formed PTA who raised a total of £1007 through their Christmas Raffle.
They will be holding their next meeting on Tuesday 11th January at 6.30pm. This will be a virtual meeting and everyone is welcome to attend to lend support and input.
