What do we do?
Eyam School has a thriving PTFA which raises valuable funds for the school each year as well as contributing to the social life of the school. The PTFA has a committee which organises regular fund raising events such as the annual Bonfire Display and the Summer Fair. In the last year the committee has also organised a Race Night, Easter events and Orienteering events to name a few.
Our main aim is to raise money to improve the learning environment for the children and this year we have been able to fund a climbing wall for the playground and partially fund the tyre park on the school field as well as contributing to other valuable resources in school. We also raise funds to provide various workshops for the children and to subsidise school trips helping to keep the cost for parents to a minimum.

How can you help?
All parents automatically become a member of the PTFA when their child starts school. All parents are welcome to attend the PTFA committee meetings that are held once a term. Everyone can make a valuable contribution by helping on an ad-hoc basis with the various fund raising events held throughout the year.
We are always looking for new ideas for fund raising events so if you have any ideas please let one of the committee members know.
Throughout the year we hold raffles and serve refreshments as part of the events so are always looking for kind donations of prizes or unwanted gifts and help in the form of cake donations, catering and so on. We are also part of the Your School Lottery scheme which you can join for as little as £1 a week. As well as benefiting the school you will have the chance of winning a guaranteed weekly prize for someone within your school community. Or you can support us through Easy Fund Raising which turns your everyday online shopping into free donations for our school.
