Walking the wall

PFA (Parents and Friends Assoc)

Welcome to our Parents and Friends Association page!

The PFA is made up of parents, teachers and community members. We work together to provide fun out of school activities for children, parents and friends, and raise money along the way. The money raised goes towards supporting the school for both curricular and extra-curricular activities as well as resources. The PFA also helps fund the transportation of the children when educated off site – in particular the annual Junior Residential and most recently our fantastic trip to the 'Theatre by the Lake' to watch Peter Pan. We also organise the Christmas party each year for the children, including a very special guest... Father Christmas!


We usually meet around 3 to 4 times a year. Our meetings are informal and friendly and  new members are always welcome. We are always looking for new and exciting ways to have some fun and raise some money. 


We organise an annual clothing collection which raises money for both the PFA and the local Air Ambulance.

We also produce a calendar which showcases the artwork of all of the children in school along with useful information like birthdays and term dates. We usually take orders in November and December,  however if you would like one throughout the year please contact us via the school. Calendars are £5 each.

 We run a 50 club which pays out cash prizes each month.


We have also recently registered with the 'Giving Machine'. This is a fantastic way of raising money for the school and so easy to do. Follow the link below to the Giving Machine website and register yourself as a giver. When asked to select your cause search 'Bewcastle', and there we are! It costs you absolutely nothing to use. Once you have done any online shopping, all you have to do is go onto the website, search for the school name, and follow the instructions from there. We are also entitled to a little extra donation if we manage to get 60 people to register for our cause within 60 days of joining, so tell your friends and neighbours!



The PFA is currently made up of:

Chairperson: Joyce Waugh

Vice-Chairperson: Emma James

Secretary: Pauline Little

If you have any ideas or would like to join, contact us via the school.
