The Honeywell Schools Parents, Teachers and Friends Association (PTFA) is a volunteer organisation dedicated to the schools’ diverse community, to the well-being of our children and to their education and pastoral care. It organises fundraising events and enjoyable social functions for both parents and children as well as publishing a school magazine, Sting. The PTFA is very enthusiastic about its efforts and is keen to help the schools offer some ‘added extras’. To this end, it works in close conjunction with the head teachers.
All parents and teachers at Honeywell Infant and Junior Schools automatically become members of our thriving PTFA. The friends of the PTFA consist of individuals and local businesses who contribute and support the PTFA in its endeavour to raise funds and awareness.
We are very fortunate to have a PTFA that is such an integral part of the school community. The PTFA has raised thousands of pounds, which have been spent on improving equipment and resources to enhance the children's education and the school facilities. It also helps to foster closer links between home and school and is an excellent way to bring staff, parents and friends together socially in support of the school. The PTFA also runs campaigns to promote walking to school, road safety, an annual Bust the Bug and many more.
