St James PTFA

The St James PTFA is a friendly group of people who meet to discuss fundraising ideas and organise events to support our school.

The PTFA raise thousands of pounds each year, providing valuable financial resources to support and enhance our school for our children.

Over the last two years we have provided iPads and made many other smaller contributions, such as money for play equipment to help keep our children active and subsidised many in school activities.  In ‘normal’ times, the PTFA contributes to school trips and many other activities that help enhance our children’s life in school.

Could you spare some of your time to help?

We are always looking for new members, so why not join our team and bring new ideas?  If you would like to find out more, volunteer to join our team or can spare an hour or two to help out at any of our forthcoming events, please contact us on ptfastjamesdaisyhill@gmail.com or leave your name & number with the school office.

School Uniform Bank

We are proud to manage the School Uniform Bank, offering pre-loved uniform to the St James family.  Please contact the PTFA via email (ptfastjamesdaisyhill@gmail.com) with details of what you need, and we will let you know if we can help; this service is completely free of charge and designed to promote re-use and recycling within our School Family.

The Uniform Bank relies on your donations of outgrown and unwanted uniform – we will accept any part of the official school uniform.  You can drop off your Uniform at the School Office anytime. We would respectfully ask you donate the uniform washed and in a clean bag.

We welcome cash donations as these will help raise vital funds for school, but these are no means required the same access to uniform is available to everyone.
