Burbage Primary School


Parents Teachers and Friends Association

Welcome to Burbage Primary School Parent, Teacher, & Friends Association (PTFA)

We are a small group of parents who volunteer some of our free time to fundraise and enhance the children’s school experience.

We aim to raise as much money as possible through a variety of events that take place both in and out of school hours. All the money we raise goes directly back into the school for the benefit of pupils. Examples of how we spend the money include payment towards school trips, school equipment and buildings (such as the MUGA and the trim trail) and special occasion treats such as Easter eggs.

Some of the events we are responsible for include the Summer Fair, the Christmas Fair, Easter egg hunts, school discos and ice cream sales in the summer months.

We also have a termly clothes recycling collection and we are responsible for reuniting lost property with its rightful owners or finding new owners for it where this is not possible!

Joining the PTFA is a great way to be more involved with your child’s school and we are always looking for more volunteers to help us with a wide variety of tasks including thinking of new fun fundraising ideas, event preparations, cake baking, cutting things out, making posters and much more!

By volunteering with the PTFA you can help us to make a difference to the extra-curricular activities your child can receive. There is no pressure to be at every event – we are just happy to have you on board with us!

If you would like to know more or would like to help us (at any time) please e mail or message us via Facebook (Burbage PTFA) or alternatively, approach any of us in the playground. We simply can’t run the PTFA without our wonderful community behind us so we really are grateful for any help you can give us.

Ways you can help from home - PTFA Links


Every term we organise an unwanted clothes & shoe collection, which is a great way to generate funds for the PTFA whilst having a clear out at home. Details of what is accepted can be found at: The company pay the PTFA 35p/kilo so the bigger the bag the more money raised and typically collections raise in excess of £100.


If you shop online, you can raise funds via easyfundraising. It doesn’t cost you any more, you simply click to the online retailer via easyfundraising and, if they are registered, easyfundraising will automatically take the donation on behalf of PTFA. This is either a percentage of the sale or a fixed amount but will not affect the overall total you pay. The link below will raise an additional £5 donation once you have raised £5 in donations.
