We are a friendly group of parents and carers, meeting regularly to organise fundraising activities.  We work to provide additional funds to the school for resources that they may not normally have to support and enrich the student's school experiences.

What are we fundraising towards?

At this point in time, we have pledged a regular donation to the JTFS Support Fund which ensures that all students have access to the kit and resources they need to be able to attend school.  We know that some families have found themselves in difficult circumstances over lockdown and we are keen to support everyone in the JTFS community.

We have also donated £500 to the Learning Resource Centre so that new books can be purchased for the students.  Reading is an important part of the culture at JTFS and we want to make sure that there are plenty of books to choose from!

In the longer term, we would like to work towards fundraising for some larger items that the school needs, such as a shelter for the Outdoor W


ild Learning programme.

What have we raised so far?

Our virtual balloon race proved to be lots of fun and raised £641.28, so a big thank you to everyone who supported this 

Lots of our parents and carers support via the Lottery which really helps. Tickets cost £1 and there is a cash prize every week! To enter go to and search for PTFA of John Taylor Free School.

You can help for FREE by shopping with your favourite retailers via the Easyfundraising app or website! Go to and enter PTFA of John Taylor Free School as your cause.

If you would like to donate any outgrown uniform, please keep this aside as we are planning a uniform sale to raise funds for the PTFA and provide uniform at a bargain price.
