Welcome to the PTFA section.


The PTFA website address is


At St James we have a very enthusiastic and active Parents, Teachers and Friends Association, (PTFA,) who organise events throughout the year that bring the school community together and help raise vital funds to support the school and enhance the experience and education of the children.

Especially in today's economic climate, the funding they provide is extremely valuable. For example, in past years the PTFA has provided and maintained our Pirate Ship play space. 

When, after 10 years use of almost daily use, it was  necessary to take this out of service the PTFA helped to raise enough money to fund a fabulous new replacement!

They have also provided valuable contributions to our IT provision including the installation of smart screens in all classrooms and ipads.

Let it Snow!

We had a 'wish tree' at our Christmas fair where children could win a wish. Money raised from the wishes has been given to a children's cancer charity. Our winning wish wanted snow so we made this happen on the last day of term before Christmas. Thank you for all of your wishes and donations.
