Welcome to Clifton Parents, Teachers and Friends Association.


We have a very active Parents, Teachers and Friends Association (PTFA) who work hard across the year organising a range of fun events for our children and their families.  These include things like:  School Discos, Bingo and Beetle Nights, the Summer Fair, after school tuck shops, the Christmas Night Market and many more.


The PTFA also fund equipment, resources, treats and fun social activities to enhance our children's educational experiences.


If you are interested in joining and/or helping out, please contact the PTFA via email or by speaking to one of the team, or any member of school staff.  This is a great way to support your school as well as making new friends at the same time, so please do come along and get involved.

PTFA Christmas Gifts

The children received a beautiful personalised bookmark and a selection box from the PTFA for Christmas this year. The children loved them! Thank you so much! 

Trees- September 2023

A number of trees have been planted in the Jubilee Garden, adjacent to the King Charles III Summer House. These trees were purchased by the PTFA and include fruit trees (look out for blossom in the spring) and evergreen species to benefit wildlife and provide year-round interest. Huge thanks to everyone who helped with this project and got the trees in the ground. Special thanks to Mercaston Tree Company for supplying the trees and their generous support.
