What is the PFA?
The Wells Free School Parents' and Friends' Association (PFA) is a registered charity which raises money to enhance our children’s education experience and the school’s facilities. Our charity number is 1178180. We have recently contributed to the renovation of the school library and we are aiming to raise money for new iPads to enable all children to have access to technology when they need it.
Who are the PFA?
All parents and members of the school community are encouraged to get involved even if they only have a small amount of time available. All families are automatically members of The Wells Free School when their child joins the school.
The PFA is run by a committee of volunteers who are elected at the Annual General Meeting. The PFA exists to provide closer links between home and school and is an excellent way to bring staff, parents and friends together socially in support of the school, working towards a common goal.
The 2023-2024 Committee
Co-Chairs: Jenny Brierley and Therese Webb

Like most PTA’s, the majority of our funds are raised through the events that we run. Some of our most popular events are the School Disco, Hoedown, Winter Market, School Camp out and Quiz Night. We also hold regular cake sales.
We always try to respond to the children’s requests; it is great to see them having fun at the events or enjoying using a piece of new equipment that the PFA has donated.
As our PFA is a registered charity, we are able to raise money through gift aid and company matched giving schemes. If you haven’t already done so, please complete this Gift Aid declaration form in order for us to claim gift aid on your donations.
