Friends are a member of Parentkind (originally known as PTA UK – Parent and Teaching Association), which is the national charity that advances education and supports PTAs throughout England, Wales and Northern Ireland. 50% of all schools in the UK have current membership with Parentkind. We pay an annual membership fee which gives us lots of member benefits, including subscription linked insurance cover, support and advice on PTA/Friends fundraising matters, opportunities to meet with other PTAs to discuss and share experiences, and regular newsletters.
The Parentkind website is also a valuable resource to you as parents, with signposts to useful, relevant websites on subjects such as bullying, school funding, special educational needs, homework and much, much more. You can also join their Facebook page for day to day information and ideas.
