Parents, Teachers & Friends Association (PTFA)

We are re-launching our PTFA!

Read about it here. Can you help?

If you are interested in supporting the school as part of our PTFA please telephone or email the school and someone will get back to you! (Call the school on 020 8857 5637 or email info@baring.lewisham.sch.uk).  

 

As a group we aim to;

  • Raise funds to pay for extra resources for the school and education of all pupils
  • Develop local community cohesion through our activities
  • Encourage and enable parents/carers to become more involved in school life
  • Link up with our school council to develop pupils’ skills and experiences in fundraising,  helping the school and local community

We are always looking for new members to help us raise money and to get involved in whatever way they can, to help make Baring an even better school.

  • Are you really organised?
  • Are you creative?
  • Or sporty?
  • Do you love baking cakes?

How has the fundraising make a difference to children’s learning?

With the money raised we have been able to do many things to benefit our children.

Some things we have purchased for the school are:

  • Play equipment for the playground – to make playtimes more fun
  • Caring Christmas Tree – to support Christmas activities and celebrations
  • A commemorative bench
  • School display cabinet – to keep our trophies safe and on show
  • Playground benches and games
  • Mounted games on playground
  • Playground adventure trail
  • Year 6 books funded every year as a celebration of each child’s school life at Baring as they transfer to secondary school
