The Friends of Trinity PTA is the registered charity raising funds for Trinity Road Primary School to buy equipment and services that enhance the children’s learning experience and benefit them socially and culturally.

We aim to make the children’s Primary School experience as special as possible.

We help you create fond memories that last a lifetime, with special events that are fun for the children, with fundraising that enables us to donate additional equipment and services the children would otherwise not have access to in school.

We help to nurture a closer relationship between parents and the school.

By making it easier for parents to get involved, creating networking opportunities and chances to meet parents of classmates.

We help to maintain strong links between the school and the local community.

Working with the local church, local businesses, and other organisations to help the children feel part of their community.

Friends of Trinity is run by volunteers to raise money with events like the Summer Fete, the Christmas Bazaar and donations from local businesses and commission schemes.

As well as being lots of fun, our fundraising makes it possible for Friends of Trinity to buy equipment and services for the school that enhance the children’s experience and benefit them socially and culturally.

The funds raised have paid for the whole school Pantomime trip, professional visitors, the Year 6 end of year trip, new playground markings, discounted Adventure Island tickets, new books, the all-weather tent for Outdoor Learning in Trinity Woods, and the iPad for parent use in the reception area.

We invite all parents, carers and grandparents to take part in raising funds for the school through the FoT when possible, and we’ll do our best to make it easy for everyone to get involved. Your participation really makes a difference!

Please attend our next meeting and don’t worry about child care, because you can bring little ones along. If you can’t make it to one of our daytime meetings, we also hold evening meetings.

I love my job and being creative.
I like to crochet in my spare time and listening to music.

I have two children at Trinity Road, one in year Three and one in reception.

It’s great to see the families having fun at the events and knowing the money raised will help the school.

I run my own business installing Cinema & TV Rooms. I enjoy most sports but don’t do as many these days! I have two children aged 6 and 2 with the eldest in year 1. I took on the role of trustee to help make a difference and to help the school get as much money as possible. 

I enjoy helping at on last years Santa Grotto and summer fate. I believe we can help the school go from good to great.

I have a daughter in year one, another daughter who will start school in September 2019, closely followed by my son in 2020.

On behalf of our children, parents and staff, we would like to thank you in advance for your consideration and charity. Even the smallest amount of help makes a big difference to the children’s school experience.
