Our Community MAT

Our Community Multi Academy Trust is a group of town, city and village schools that have joined together to provide the very best education for the children in our care and where we believe that education is very much a matter of the individual.

Petham has an active and generous PTFA. The support of this group is invaluable to the school and has made a real difference to how the school runs. Please see their latest newsletters and minutes below for more information about forthcoming events.

 In recent years the PTFA have supplied:

  • 20 new tablets for the children to use to complete their ICT curriculum 2018-19
  • The PTFA have funded the new bark for the adventure play area 2018-19
  • Whole school Mathletics subscription for 2018-19.
  • Donation of £50 to each class for 'wet play' toys.
  • Donation of £1000 towards the school trip to the pantomime.
  • New carpets for Robins and Swallows classes.
  • Two eco-cars for a Year 6 project.
  • Lots of new books for the library.
  • A school celebration, "Petham Fest" with entertainment, face painting and food.
  • Christmas crackers and chocolate lollies for our yearly Christmas lunch.

The PTFA is a vital part of our school community.  Without it, we would not be able to do as many things as we do as a school, and we certainly wouldn't be as well resourced.
