Parents and Friends of Abel Smith School 

Abel Smith School PFA is registered charity, No. 1047708



The Parent & Friends Association (PFA) raises money for our children. Our fundraising buys equipment, books, and "fun things" such as ice lollies and medals, that help to enrich the learning experience. Everyone is a member of the PFA and we need you! No matter what you can offer; whether your time, donations of goods or money, or use of your skills, it all helps our children and their school.

Thanks to you, this year the PFA:

  • Is buying 16 new laptops - now every child in the class will have their own laptop to use in IT and other lessons without having to share.

  • Has paid for the Shakespeare workshop (Reception - Year 6)

  • Made a small donation to the Early Years library


We are going to trial a new way of managing PFA events as we all have very little time to spare. Going forwards, each year group will organise a different PFA event. Of course, all PFA resources will be available to support and offer guidance, but the year group will lead their event and coordinate actions (parents from any year can volunteer to help “on the day” or as required).

Year 1 have already taken up this challenge and worked together to run a very successful Sporty Disco last week. Many thanks to all who were involved and to Nic and Lucy for leading the volunteers.
