Welcome to the Mark First and Preschool Academy PTFA page

(Registered charity number 1150093)


The Parents, Teachers and Friends Association is an integral part of the Mark First & Pre-school community.  All parents and teachers are automatically members of the PTFA. Through organising events, the PTFA team bring the parents and families of school and the community together and have a great time while raising money for the school to fund projects which support and enrich the education of the children. 


We hold half-termly meetings which anyone is welcome to attend. If you are unable to attend the meetings but would still like to help at events, we would be grateful for any additional help and support.

Uniformly - Pre-loved and new uniform


The PTFA have set up on online shop where you can purchase both pre-loved and new uniform (due to a surplus in stock). If you have any pre-loved uniform that has been outgrown or is no longer needed, and it is in good condition, please donate it by placing it in the green bin at the front of the school.


If you would like to purchase uniform, please click the link below or scan the QR code.

How can you support us to support the school?


You can support in lots of ways. Even using certain websites or suppliers when making purchases may result in the school receiving 'cashback', whilst some employers may take part in 'match-funding' and offer to match what you or the school raise. A list of employees who offer this can be found below - please check if your employer is one of them!
