PTFA achievements



Since taking over in October 2022, your PTFA has funded all of the below which you will find on the above sunflower poster.


We have started with the TT Rock competition prizes along with the loose coin challenge prizes, which took place last year, as well as funding the annual cinema trip to the Ritz in Belper for years 1-6, the children really looked forward this annual treat.

Not forgetting our younger ones in nursery and reception, they were treated to some special presents which were hand delivered by Santa himself, whilst the older ones enjoyed the cinema trip.


All the chocolate treats, that were handed out at both infant and junior Christmas discos by Santa when the children were leaving the discos, were also funded by your PTFA.


Bringing us into 2023, 

The reception children will be looking forward to the traditional Living Eggs project, to where they get to experience the hatching of the chicks in their classrooms.


The refill of the caterpillars in nursery, is another project that the children are looking forward too, where they  get to see the caterpillars grow and evolve into beautiful butterflies, both of these events have been funded by your PTFA.


Making the transition from nursery into reception, each child from nursery will be given a book to help them with their new chapter in reception.


All new 2023/2024 reception starters will be given a special teddy bear keyring that will attach to their book bags to help them ease into the new September term.


Each class within school  ( 18 classes at present) will be given a book, this will benefit all the children in the school and we are looking forward to seeing these in school very soon.


Your PTFA has  also funded £800 towards the year 6 leavers prom, which is being planned for by the year 6 parents / carers to  be held in July of 2023.


St John's PTFA Belper are proud to have been able to fund all these events and requests, which will benefit all the children of St John's, there are some more request in the pipeline to which we will share these from April - July , in a post later on in the term.


We are very grateful and appreciate all the support that we have been given and for all your future support , these events and funding cannot happen without your continued support, so a massive thank you to you all.

Next time you see a teddy bear keyring on a reception starters bag or your child tells you about a new book in their class, Smile and think we helped to fund that teddy or book.















What your PTFA has achieved so far,

Oct 2022 - December 2022!


The poster gives a break down of what your PTFA has achieved so far with their planned events and fundraising efforts, since the start of their PTFA  journey.


These events have been very well supported and we would like to thank you for your continued support, without the help of the volunteers and helpers these events wouldn't be able to take place.

-Prizes for the TT Rock Star competition and the winners of the loose coin change challenge.

-Santa Treats for the Christmas disco 2022.
