Chorley New Road Primary School Tel: 01204 337046




The PTFA is a group of Parents, Teachers and friends (grandparents, parents of ex-pupils etc.)  The PTFA helps to raise money for the things for the school which cannot always come out of the school budget.  Over the years we have raised money for lots of things for the school which include: climbing frames, blinds for all the classrooms, cameras, wet play equipment, cooking club, overhead projectors and books to name just a few.

We meet approximately once or twice a term to discuss fund raising ideas and discuss where funds will be used.  As a group we work really hard to raise as much money as we can for the school through fairs, discos, Easter Bingo etc.  We are a friendly group of people and would love to see some new faces.
