We are very fortunate to have a very active Parents Teachers & Friends Association, one which has been an integral part of the school community since 2013.   Emmanuel Community School has been a Primary school since September 2012.  During that time PTFA has raised thousands of pounds which has been spent enhancing and enriching our children’s education experience.

Our PTFA is more than simply fundraising.  It exists to provide closer links between home, the school & the local community & it creates opportunities that bring staff, parents & friends together in support of the school.

All families in the school are automatically members of the PTFA and are encouraged to get involved when their child joins the school.

How we raise money.  Some of our regular events include:

  • Summer Fair:  Our biggest event each year. A themed summer Fair to be enjoyed by all the family with traditional stalls such as tombola, bouncy castles, live music, BBQs & more.
  • Christmas Fair:  Hamper prizes, Games for the children, face painting, Santa’s Story Grotto.
  • Barn Dance: Live Music, dance, games fun for the whole family.
  • Talent Show: Always a sell out so get your tickets early, come and watch fantastic ECS school talent plus live acts from the community.
  • ECS Concert:  Bring Family & Friends for an exciting evening of music recital and celebratory singing with our School Choir.
  • School Disco Party – A firm favourite, party games, dance and fun.

Here are some of the ways in which funds raised benefit the children, support the school & enrich the community:

  • Whole school exciting Theatre trip to Hackney Christmas pantomime.
  • READATHON Competition prizes to encourage a love of reading.
  • Mother’s Day Refreshments and flowers for all Parents attending special assembly.
  • School planting equipment and visitors refreshments for the Queen’s Birthday Celebrations.
  • Craft activities and prizes for Queens Birthday Competition winners.
  • New School Library: Contributions towards brand new books and materials.
  • Planned next year. Author in Residence: A recognised children’s author visit to the school to talk about their work and to read from their books to encourage children to enjoy reading more.
  • Charity Cup Winners donation of Learning support equipment for classroom.
  • A percentage of funds raised to contribute to Afterschool activities and hardship bursary.
  • Planned: Assisting the school with funding for some curricular trips and assemblies.
  • Planned: Playground equipment contributing to playground development, benches and covered sail shade within the playground.
  • Celebration Awards for the children and teachers completing the Hackney Schools Half Marathon.
  • Refreshments and Lollies for our talented athletes on Sports Day.
  • Planned: Contribution towards education and life skills parents workshops/activities after school.
  • Easter Parade Crafts, bonnet making experience and eggs for the whole school.

Donations from parents are extremely important. You can donate time, items for sale, raffle prizes or offers of services & skills.  Every little helps so assisting for just one hour at an event would be invaluable. The continued success of our events is as a result of the generosity of parents and teachers help & support.

How we communicate with you:

  • Via email pta2015@gmail.com
  • School noticeboard and Emmanuel Community School PTFA:  Facebook.
  • Bi-weekly meetings on Wednesday’s drop the kids off at Trekkers and come to exchange ideas.
