Minutes of the previous PTFA meeting

Welcome to our PTFA page!


Amberley Primary School is very fortunate in having a pro-active and hard working PTFA made up of parents and school staff who work together for the benefit of our pupils. The PTFA have a regular programme of events for pupils and their families which act as enrichment to our curriculum and fund raisers to support the school in providing a wide range of experiences and resources for our children. The PTFA also support schoo in a range of charity activities which futjher support our pupils in becoming good citizens and add to our PSHE curriculum offer.


Formal roles of Chair and Secretary are in place but all PTFA members work together supporting  each other and allowing pupils and families to benefit from a range of educational, fun, and varied activities.
