Parent & Family Association (PFA)
Are you a parent or carer of a child that attends Huish Episcopi Primary School or are you a volunteer who has links with the school?
If so why not join the PFA? The PFA is an organisation run solely by parents and volunteers to raise money for the school.
Money raised goes towards providing materials, resources and facilities which benefit every child that attends the school.
Events organised by the school enhance the school community but also provide much needed funds!
The activities help to bring together parents and children and promote good communication between staff and parents as we jointly work towards common goals.
