Greenfield School Association (GSA) & Friends Of Pulloxhill School (FOPS)
We are lucky to have two active ‘Parent Teacher Associations’ for our Academy. Greenfield is represented by GSA (Greenfield School Association) and Pulloxhill by FOPS (Friends of Pulloxhill School). Both associations are registered charities, Greenfield is Charity Number 1096615 and Pulloxhill is 1091439.
As a parent of a child in either school you are automatically a member of the respective PTA. If you would like to get involved in any way, have new ideas for spending money, want to join the committee or have any fundraising ideas please speak to a member of the existing committee. They welcome any ideas or input from you.
The PTA’s aim to raise funds to benefit the children at each school and to make decisions as to where the monies are best spent. Traditionally the monies raised are used for "Added Value" items for the school rather than curriculum necessities. However in the current economic climate this situation may need to change.
Both PTA’s have closed Facebook Pages. Please join to keep up to date with information on upcoming events.

How you can help?
Not every parent has the time to join the committee. However, there are many other ways you can help throughout the year. These include being a parent helper at an event, running a stall at a Fayre, buying raffle tickets, sourcing raffle prizes, wrapping presents and, most importantly, supporting the events that are put on.
In addition, are you lucky enough to work for a Company that offers Match Funding? Some companies will match the fundraising efforts of their staffs chosen charity. Please ask, we might be lucky.
