Our PTA - the Friends of Halfway Nursery Infants Group

Friends of Halfway Nursery Infants is a support group made up of parents and staff which usually meets once each half termin the Staff Room. The meetings are friendly and informal and they are open to all parents/carers.

The group meets to plan and organise fundraising events such as the school discos, quiz nights, Christmas events and other social events.  It also discusses various issues concerned with school, but coming to the meetings does not commit parents to helping or becoming involved if they do not wish. The money raised is used, in consultation with the staff, to provide additional resources and equipment for the children. 


An example of resources bought for the children from the Group's fundraising - the Trim Trail, pictured below.

Friends of Halfway Nursery Infants Fund Benefits

As a result of the hard work of the Group and the generosity of parents, carers and local businesses, children at our School have benefited from the following:



  • IPads

  • Large screen TV for the hall

  • Book bags

  • Listening centres

  • Outside storage for toys

  • Computers

  • Dictionaries

  • Big books

  • Library books

  • Playground activity markings (hopscotch etc.)

  • Competition prizes for the Christmas Fayre, Summer Fayres and Easter Parade

  • Materials for making special things at Christmas

  • Presents from Santa

  • Photos from Santa

  • Reflective tabards providing additional safety on educational trips

  • Performance by the Travelling Theatre

  • Baking equipment

  • School disco for children leaving our School at the end of Year 2


Without the funding the Group provides, many things that the children enjoy would not happen, and a lot of the equipment and resources the children need would not be here.
