Welcome to the Parents, Teachers and Friends Association






How you can help with 2019/2020 fundraising:-

Will you help provide a better outdoor play-area for Nields Early Years Unit?

There’s no doubt that Nields EYU is a brilliant place for our children to start their education journey. The nurture, support and teaching they receive is top quality, but the outdoor provision is in need of an upgrade.

It is easy to give, just sign up to the Co-op as a member and every time you buy a Co-op branded product, swipe your card and Nields School will get 1% to spend on our new play area. It may not sound like much, but our supporters have already generated £200! So please get involved and tell your friends and family (even those who are not in our area can chose Nields as their “local cause”!)

If you haven’t registered, please use the link https://membership.coop.co.uk/register or ask in the Co-op.

If you are a member, then please select Nields School as your chosen cause and remember to swipe your membership card every time you pop in.  https://www.coop.co.uk/local-causes

Do you have green fingers?

Work has started on clearing the allotment which we are developing and turning into an area that will provide a nice outdoor learning environment for everyone at Nields to enjoy.


But we are in need of some help…..

Can you help at all?

If so, please contact Emily in the school office.



As I’m sure you’ll have noticed; we have a new name!

The reason for our re-branding, from PSFA, is due to a request from the Charity Commission and following feedback from local businesses.

A competition was held in school at the end of the summer term, whereby the children were asked to design a new logo for our new name and I’m delighted to announce that the chosen winner was Nate from class 5. His design has been adapted to become the new logo for the PTFA.

So just to clarify, our name going forward is Nields PTFA (PARENTS, TEACHERS AND FRIENDS ASSOCIATION).  We will still continue to organise fabulous fundraising events throughout the year, and as always we would be delighted for new ideas and help.


We would like to say a massive thank you for the fundraising efforts over the last year. Thank you so much to each and every one who donated goods, helped organise and run the events and those who attended them. Lots of fun was had, a huge amount of money was raised, and the children now have the fantastic trim trail to show for everyone’s efforts.


Official letters will be sent out nearer the time and details for all our events will be in the noticeboard and on facebook. Search for NieldsPTFA.

Library news update:

You may remember us telling you about the grant that Yorkshire Water very generously gave Nields PTFA to revamp the library and relocate it to the Portacabin. We have bought some lovely new bookshelves, some new books, added lots of colour and a seating area. We will have a celebration launch in January, when you can see it for yourself.





Back in the summer, Yorkshire Water very generously gave Nields PTFA £5000 to revamp the library. We are currently working on the plans and will keep you updated.
