The PFA is a voluntary association of parents, carers and friends of children who attend the school.  Its aim is to advance the education of pupils in the school, done through a range of fundraising activities that bring together parents, staff and children.

The aim of the PFA is to provide additional funds in order to purchase 'desirable' educational and other items that are not covered by the standard school budget.
