Parents and Teacher Association

Welcome to the Friends of Ferndale page. We are the Parents and Teacher Association (PTA) for Ferndale Primary and Nursery School.

The committee for 2021/2022 is:

Chair Person Mrs Kerrie Phillips
Deputy Chair Person Miss Julie Ayres
Treasurer Mrs Charlotte Greenwood
Secretary Miss Jane Holden
Teacher Rep Mrs Sarah Prevost

We have regular committee meetings which are open to Parent’s/Guardian’s of students who attend Ferndale Primary and Nursery School.  Notifications of the meetings are sent by text so keep an eye on your phone. At these meetings we discuss forth coming events, any new events and how to invest the money that is raised back in to the school.

Other events that we have thought the school year are:

  • Term discos – These are themed discos that happen each term. Always fun to see the children throw some moves on the dance floor. We do an early session for reception year, then a session for year one and two.  Key stage 2 have the later session.
  • Summer & Christmas Fayre – Always great fun with stalls ranging from tombola’s, sweet shop, games where children can win prizes to homemade cakes.  We also set a teacher challenge for these events which the Teachers are always willing to take part in.
  • Fireworks – We have a regular fireworks event usually on the Friday around the 8th November.

All the events have refreshments, music and a lot of fun.

Something we are looking for is Parent’s/Guardian’s help at events. Even if it’s just 30 minutes helping on a stall or help supervising at a disco. Without the support of the Parent’s/Guardian’s events may not happen, so where possible please help. 

If you are interested in helping or have any ideas for fund raising or if you just wish to provide feedback on a recent event, please drop the committee an email at and a member of the committee will be in contact.
