Welcome to the PTFA!
The Parent, Teacher & Friend’s Association (PTFA) is an independent charity, run by volunteers, to raise money for Stroud Valley Community School. With your support, we raise thousands of pounds every year for class activities, new school equipment and other extras at the school. We also run events and activities to strengthen connections between parents, families and the school.

Class Reps and WhatsApp Groups
Find a list of class reps below: these are parents who have agreed to help organise some class PTFA events and help keep class parents updated on events and activities.
Check with your class rep to find out if there is an informal WhatsApp or other messaging group for parents communication in your children’s classes.
Note: joining WhatsApp groups will usually make your phone number accessible to all other group members. Talk to your Class Rep if this is a problem.
Check the weekly school newsletter for updates about PTFA fundraising events and activities.
We include updates every week.

Join our monthly draw, and support the school.
We are excited to be able to invite you all to join the Stroud Valley school 100 club. This is a great opportunity to raise money for our school and have a chance at winning some extra cash for your family. All you have to do is choose a number from 1 to 100. We will be running it for 11 months of the year (£2 per month — excluding August) for an upfront cost of £22 per number.
Miss Sleep will announce the winning number in assembly on the first Tuesday of every month — the number will be chosen by a randomiser to ensure complete fairness. The prize money will then be split 50:50 between the school and the person with the winning number!
For example, if there are 100 participants the winning participant will get £100 and the PTFA £100!
If you would like to request a number please email the PTFA at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Numbers will be given on a first come first served basis and only once the £22 payment has been received.
You can join mid year by making a payment of £2 for each of for the remaining months until August.
Payment can be done via the Stroud Valley PTFA PayPal or via BACs:
