Who Are We?
The PTFA (Parents. Teachers, and Friends Association) are a highly committed group of volunteers who give up their time free of charge to undertake many, many activities in order to raise money for the school.
Made up mainly of parents of existing children, they work tirelessly to provide fundraisers, and other activities with the sole purpose of bringing the school community together and also raising valuable money for the school along the way.
Recent fundraisers have provided the school with:
- Funds to cover class and school trips
- Classroom materials
- Money towards visiting theatre groups and other special visitors
- Funds to help purchase computers and other equipment
We are very lucky to have an extremely active group of volunteer parents here at Starcross, and we value their contribution very highly indeed.

Charlotte, Nicky D and Nicky S took on the challenge of running Barcelona Marathon on the 10th March 2019 – to raise more funds for the children of Starcross Primary School and Preschool, with the aim of raising enough money this year to fully upgrade all of the ICT within the school. This event alone has raised about £1000, which is a fantastic amount. Thank you to everyone that has shown their support and to Carol Hill from Stitch3Sixty who provided amazing race shirts for the team.
The Next Event will be:
Wednesday 20th March – Charity Bingo Night at the Langstone Cliff Hotel
Tuesday 26th March – Rotary Club Quiz Night – children from school are selected to take part – Refreshments will be on sale throughout the event
Friday 29th March – Non-Uniform Day in Exchange for Easter Eggs / Chocolate items
Tuesday April 2nd – French Twinners visiting
Wednesday 3rd April – 3.30 – Easter Raffle will take place in the school Hall
Everyone is encouraged to join the PTFA and / or help out at events. We cannot run these events without volunteers.
