PTFA news...

Following the success of the ice lolly sales last half term, we are pleased to be having one twice more on Friday 2nd July and the final day of term, Friday 23rd July. We will keep the set up the same for both dates as before with top and bottom gates and correct change only please.

We are also excited to finish the year well with the Bishops Tawton Big Summer Raffle! We have some incredible prizes already donated with more coming in regularly. 2 books of tickets will be arriving home with each child in book bags this week and cost £1 per ticket, £5 per book. Please feel free to sell them to friends, family and neighbours! The ticket stubs can be returned to school in a labelled envelope with the correct cash by Friday 2nd July. If you don’t need all of your ticket books, particularly if you have several children in the school, please return these in blank envelopes so they are able to be used for other families. 

The raffle will be drawn on 9th July and winners will be posted on our Facebook group and informed via the newsletter! 

We have spent a lot of funds this year without being able to raise a lot, so we are really hoping you will feel able to support us in our final events of the year! 

Thank you so much! 

The PTFA team

It was so lovely to see all the children enjoying their ice lollies before we broke up for half term! Thanks to all your support, we raised over £73 for the school. 
Watch this space for more ice lolly sales (weather dependant) and the Big Summer Raffle coming soon!

 Ice lolly sale


After the success of our last ice lolly sale, we will be out again to celebrate the end of the half term after school on Friday 28th May with another ice lolly sale! 


Ice lollies will be 50p again and the same rules will apply with children using the top exit buying in school grounds and children using the bottom exit can buy their lollies with their parents at the bench at the top of school lane (keeping to the one way system). You are able to buy for younger siblings at the bottom gate if desired and children at cabin club will also have chance to purchase a lolly.



Please make sure you/your child has the correct change as we are unable to provide any. Social distancing rules apply.

Thank you to everyone for your support and we look forward to seeing you again soon!
The PTFA team


The PTFA would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who supported the ice lolly sale on Friday 14th! It was so lovely to see the children having a treat together and we raised a total of £65.50.
Watch this space and our Facebook page for information about our next sale! 

The PTFA were delighted to fully fund the Stone Age visitor for KS2. We hear from the children it was a great success with them all learning lots and even getting to hunt a Mammoth! Thank you to the KS2 staff for organising it.

Thank you so much to everyone who supported us through the Christmas cards this year - with your help we have raised £82. We apologise for the hold up with deliveries and want to thank the office staff who helped us get it sorted.

Thank you also to everyone who has enjoyed the Christmas market event. It was more challenging to do it remotely but hopefully all the children enjoyed choosing and decorating the bag for their gifts. Special thanks to staff in school for helping us get things sorted and to the whole PTFA team for their help making this a success!

Wishing you all a very happy Christmas from the PTFA and looking forward to sharing some great fundraising events in the New Year!

Welcome to Bishops Tawton PTFA page!
The Parent, Teachers and Friends Association are very active both in providing social activities and in fund raising. We regularly organise events including the Christmas Market, Summer Fayre, fun night at the Big Sheep, sponsored cycle rides and many more.  
We have provided the school with a range of equipment including class cameras, playtime toys, football kit, sports equipment and high quality books. We also subsidise school trips and visitors for every year group from pre-school to year 6.
We are currently meeting online to ensure the children are still able to enjoy the events we organise and to continue to raise funds for our school community. If you would like to join us, you will be very welcome. We are very grateful for all support in providing our children with the best resources and experiences possible.
Remember to look at our online forum Classlist for posts with all the latest notices and events and look out for updates on the school newsletter.
