Askrigg and Bainbridge Primary and Nursery School PTFA formed in September 2014; prior to this both schools had a separate PTFA’s which had been long established.

We are a strong group of enthusiastic parents, teachers and friends who aim to raise funds to purchase resources and equipment, fund trips and improve the Childrens learning environments. We also support school events by offering refreshments.

The PTFA is run by a committee consisting of a Chairperson, Vice-Chairperson, Secretary and Treasurer.

We have currently raised funds through running a tombola at Sycamore Hall’s Craft Fair, Catering at Hoppers Sale, running our own Christmas Fair in Askrigg Village Hall and holding a domino drive. We have plans for more events throughout the year and currently are in the process of setting up a 100 club.

The P.T.F.A. provides the ideal platform for parents, teachers and friends to socialise together (often meetings take place in local hostelries) whilst also giving attendees the opportunity take an active part in raising much needed, extra funds for the school.

Examples of the fund raising events that have taken place previously include:

Balloon Race Coffee Mornings Running the concession stall at a local auction house. Regular raffles Annual Halloween Disco Treasure Hunts Clothes Parties Virgin Vie evenings Christmas craft fair

Whilst the main emphasis is on raising funds, there are also non-profit making events where the emphasis is on socialising.

Examples of how P.T.F.A. raised funds have been used to date include:

  • Contribution to cost of outdoor play equipment
  • Contribution to swimming expenses
  • Provision of staging
  • Provision of a chilled, filtered water dispensing machine
  • Sports equipment
  • Hymn books
  • Book bags

You are very welcome to come along to the meetings, meet people, and get involved in supporting your child’s school.
