Parent and Friends Association

The Parents and Friends Association (PFA) would like to welcome you to Houghton School and tell you a little about what we do.

The PFA hold regular events to raise additional funds for the school. These include the Summer Fair and Christmas Fair – events open to everyone – even Santa has been known to pop in!

The PFA organise the school discos held in March and July and provide the food and presents for the children’s’ Christmas party and dictionaries for school leavers in July. All funds raised directly benefit the children. In the past the PFA have provided lunchbox trolleys, computers and software packages, sports equipment, musical instruments, books and outdoor play equipment.

Your support is very much appreciated at these events and/or a regular commitment can be made by participating in either the gift aid scheme or by joining the bonus ball competition. For those wishing to gift money to the PFA, a standing order for £4 per month can be set up to the school. Alternatively, for a quarterly fee of £13, you will be allocated a bonus ball, which could see you win £20-£24 if your ball is drawn in the Saturday nights lotto draw. If you are interested in either scheme please ask for the relevant form at the school office.

You are also very welcome to come along to any of the PFA meetings or to join the PFA at anytime throughout the year.

For further information about the PFA, please speak to any of the committee members

Tracie Atkinson (Chair), Leanne Walton (Treasurer), Sylvia Im Thurn (Secretary), Carol Davies, Birgit Schwarz, Jackie Hunton, Catherine Adam, Jan Mellor or Lindsey Burnie (Head teacher).
