“the ability to adapt to stress and adversity, and return to a good position after experiencing difficulty”


Assalamu’alaikum and a very, very warm welcome to our school.

These pages have been written by our PTFA especially for you, as a new family within our school community. We realise it can be strange and a little nerve-wracking joining a school, and there always seems to be so many questions to ask! The pages aim to set out all the information you will need about our Parent Teacher and Friends Association , which is a part of our school life.

If after having read it you have any questions, please do get in touch with one of the committee members, or ask via your class teacher, or the school office.

Why do we have A PTFA?

We are very fortunate at our school to have a PTFA that is an integral part of the school. In its time the PTFA has raised funds, which have been spent on improving equipment and resources to enhance our children’s education and the facilities in school in general.

But it is much, much more than just fundraising. The PTFA exists to provide closer links between home and school, and it is an excellent way to bring staff, parents and friends together socially in support of the school working towards a common goal. And it’s fun! Just ask any of the PTFA Committee or helpers. Obviously as in any organisation, there are times when it is more ‘challenging’, but with the continued support of parents and staff, our PTFA has always succeeded in its efforts masha’Allah.

All parents and members of the school community can get involved if they want to, even if they only have a small amount of time available, and all parents are automatically members of the Association when they join our school.

The PTFA is extremely conscious of the ethos and morals of our school, and we try very hard when organising and planning events to respect this.
