The PTFA of Yarmouth School is an active group through which we bring together a combination of parents, staff, governors and other West Wight locals, who are interested in supporting the School and Pre-School within the community.

All parents are automatically members while their children are on the school roll. Activities include a variety of fund-raising events, informative evenings and generally giving assistance to the school as and when needed. The income raised is an important way of enhancing school resources, and we ask parents to support our functions as much as possible.


Our biggest fundraising event of our school year is fast approaching. The Randonee will take place on Sunday 6th May. Each year this event raises thousands of pounds for our school and we need volunteers to help before and after (to set up and clear away), during (making sandwiches and serving). We will be having a meeting on Wednesday 25th April, 3pm. Please do come along and support us. All help is gratefully received.

On another note after 2 years as PTFA Chair Kizzy has made the difficult decision to step down. Kizzy will stay in post until the end of our academic year, this will give our new Chair the opportunity to shadow Kizzy, learning what the role involves. However we are now recruiting, if you are interested in this position, please do either speak to Kizzy or contact the school office.


RANDONEE – Wow! Huge, huge thank you to Kizzy, the PTFA, staff and parents who gave up their time to help with our biggest fundraising event. It was an early start with 1500 bread rolls to butter and fill. It was a very busy day with lots of hungry cyclists. In total we raised £3000!!! This is fantastic. Many thanks to all.

Wow how amazing, our PTFA raised £500 at Yarmouth Fireworks evening. For our PTFA to continue their vital work it is imperative that they receive more support. If you are able to offer any time, please do look out for meeting dates in our newsletters for see Kizzy for more details. Many thanks

Wow! We Smashed It! Thank you to all the PTFA, helpers, donators and supporters of our Autumn Fayre. We smashed last year’s takings with a profit of £552 and increasing! Money raised by the PTFA is much needed and appreciated by the school. Without the enthusiasm and hard work of all involved, the ‘little extras’ needed for our children would not be possible. Many thanks!

Park and Ice Cream

Our wonderful PTFA organised for the whole school to go to the park and have an ice cream.



A huge thank you and well done to the PTFA and all our cake makers and helpers.  A total of 3500 cyclists entered the Randonee this year!  1000 rolls were prepped, 50 pizzas cooked, 3 boxes of bananas, 200 donuts and lots of homemade cakes were sold!  However, we made £2500 profit.  Amazing!

Please find below an email we have proudly received this week.

Hello,  I am writing as I had the pleasure of visiting your school on Sunday as part of the Round the Island Cycle and was impressed with the catering and friendliness of everyone whilst offering support (chocolate, cake, tea and smiles).  My husband and I own the Wight Mouse and would like to offer a voucher for a meal as a raffle prize if you are having a summer fayre. We are probably asked by most schools but I feel that the hard work I witnessed by all on Sunday really deserves some help.  I’m not with my work computer at the second but will forward a voucher when I am for you to print (and sign please) if you would find it helpful.

Kind regards and a massive thank you, Cheryl
