Friends of St. Bartholomew’s AGM

20 May 2022

Dear Parents/Carers

We would like to give notice of the AGM of the Friends of St Bartholomew’s CE Primary School & Nursery, to be held on Monday 20 June 2022. The morning will start straight after school drop off with the PTFA Annual General Meeting, followed by a Coffee Morning in the STEM room.

The PTFA plays a vital part in the school community and all parents and guardians, as members of the PTFA, are invited to support the AGM. This is your chance to hear and see how the funds you have helped to raise have been used for the benefit of the children/students at our school.

As per our constitution (governing rules) we will be reviewing all our current policies and ensuring they are up to date and correct.

The AGM is also an opportunity for you to elect the PTFA Committee, who represent the association throughout the forthcoming year. Nominations should be sent in advance of the AGM for anyone wishing to stand as an Officer or Ordinary Committee Member, for the first time. Existing committee members wishing to stand for re-election do not have to be nominated again but should inform the PTFA of their intention to stay in their role.

If you would like any further information about being a Committee Member, please speak to either Nadia or Rebekah. As our PTFA is a registered charity, all committee members automatically become Trustees of the Charity. Before submitting your nomination form, please read the Charity Commission publication ‘The Essential Trustee – What you need to know (CC3)’. A copy of the booklet can be found on the Charity Commission website.

This year, we will be saying goodbye to our longest serving PTFA member, Ruth Bryant, who has been the treasurer of our PTFA for over 12 years.

Please return the slips below as soon as possible, or by Friday 17 June 2021 at the latest to the school office or email the PTFA email address

Kind Regards,

Nadia Mattinson
