A Dawlish Learning Partnershp School


 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.

End of Year thanks from Emily, Natalie and Katrina,

We have now reached the end of a very busy year – we are awaiting a final figure, but it looks as though we have raised in excess of £5000 this year and contributed about £6000 directly back to the school.  WOW!!!!! this could not happen without the hard work of the PTFA and the ongoing support from the parents and children.

The money has been used to assist with the payment of trips, purchase new IT equipment, including the Ipads and the Visualizers for each class , Doddle Maths, New Gym Mats and many more items, which directly benefit the children.

The PTFA will be holding their AGM on Monday 18th September 2017 at 15.45 in the school hall.  Everyone is invited and encouraged to come to this meeting.  Perhaps you would like to nominate yourself or someone else as a lead party in the PTFA, or perhaps you would just like to offer some time and support to the committee.  Everyone is Welcome.

To ensure that we continue to raise funds for the school and our children it is vital that parents come forward and offer their time.  You really can make a difference. Have a wonderful summer break.
