Earl Soham School has a very active Parents, Teachers and Friends Association (PTFA), which raises funds to support the school and helps to maintain a strong sense of community. In the last few years we have enabled the school to buy new learning and play equipment, have supported coach travel for school trips, and have purchased Christmas, Easter and leavers’ gifts for the children. We run regular fundraising events, as well as non-fundraising events such as the Christmas party for the children. We are always keen for new volunteers to join the PTFA committee or to organise individual events – please contact Laura Young firstname.lastname@example.org or Michelle Humphrey email@example.com .

PTFA Volunteers (2021-2022)
Patrick Goymer & Emma Dorsett-Wheeley Co-chairs
Kathryn Wallace & Carl Eastwood-volunteers
The PTFA is a registered charity, no. 1056384, and a member of Parentkind.
We are writing to let you know that we are stepping down as co-chairs of the PTFA. We've very much enjoyed our time helping to fundraise for the school, but as one of us has recently become co-Chair of Governors and the other no longer has a child attending the school, we feel it's time to move on. The great news is that two fantastic new Co-Chairs have already stepped up to take over: Laura Young and Michelle Humphrey. They have lots of plans already, but will need support from as many parents as possible to put them into action. The rest of the PTFA committee (Jonathan Campbell, Treasurer; Anna Goymer, Secretary; Kathryn Wallace, Events Co-ordinator) are stating on for the time being, but the PTFA is actively seeking new volunteers to take over some of these roles or help in other ways.
Thanks again for all your support over the years-it really makes a difference to the school and the children. Please keep up the great team effort!
Patrick Goymer & Emma Dorsett-Wheeley.
