In order to achieve our purpose, the PTFA recognises that the:

  • Money raised coming from PTFA events which are held in a safe and well-managed way.
  • All PTFA profit is spent on improving experiences of pupils at the Hathersage St. Michael’s CE (A) Primary School.
  • Committee members declare any interests that conflict with the PTFA purpose.

Holding events and dealing with finance means that there are risks to be managed & mitigated. The PTFA has therefore decided to adopt the following policies & procedures to ensure that our purpose is achieved, namely:

  1. Risk Management (Physical
  2. Risk Management (Financial)
  3. Conflict of Interests
  4. Complaints handling
  5. DPA protection for members

Members of the PTFA Committee have agreed the above PTFA policies and procedures.

These policies will be available on the school web-site and all Committee members are responsible for making themselves aware of our duties and polices.

The PTFA will review our policies annually.

Amendments will be made on a simple majority of the Committee and in the event of a tie the Chairman will have a casting vote.
