Welcome to the section relating to The Gateway Parents and Friends Association (the PFA).
The PFA is a registered charity (with charity number 1103263) and its charitable purpose is to boost the education of the pupils at the school. The main way the PFA does this is by holding and organising charitable fundraising events and activities, and with the funds raised, the PFA is able to provide facilities and equipment to support the school and the learning of its pupils.
Recent projects funded by the PFA include the large climbing frame and the wooden playhouses in the KS1 playground, the branded school gazebos, the benches in the KS2 playground and the fantastic artificial grass in both playgrounds which has made the playgrounds usable by the children all year round.
The PFA’s current fundraising goal is to raise approximately £10,000 to fund the purchase of new playground equipment for the KS2 playground.
