THANK YOU for visiting this page. Obviously with everyone currently social distancing, we are unable to run our normal programme of exciting events.

We had a great Mothers' Day Gift Stall just before school shut down, which made a brilliant profit of £151.23, so thank you to everyone who supported us in this. Hope all the mums/grandmas liked their gifts and managed a bit of rest before this craziness began!

Plans for social and fundraising events are all on hold, until we can return to school, but rest assured, we have lots of plans waiting, so can look forward to lots of fun when life returns to some normality. 

We are currently spending time looking at grants we can apply for and progressing plans for the allotment area. Feel free to contact us with any ideas or grants you spot, our email is NieldsPTFA@gmx.com.

We are also looking out for COMPETITIONS we can enter, to win cool stuff for school. Here are two competitions you could get your children involved in. More details will be on our Facebook page.

Stop the boredom creeping in and be in with a chance to win £2000 worth of playground markings for your school! Simply download one of our colouring in sheets and make it your own with colours and anything else you have at home. 


Download the sheets here: http://ow.ly/jQRv50z16DJ
Send your completed artwork back to us in the comments on our Facebook page and tag Nields School! Winner will be picked at random.

Competition ends 6pm 15th May 2020.  


We are seeking young cubs to join us on BEAR's GRReat Food Quest! Through a suite of free, curriculum-linked resources and a host of cross-curricular activities, help your pupils aged 5-7 understand the importance of a healthy, balanced diet.

With only 1 in 6 children in the UK currently achieving their 5-a-day, it’s time to help them make informed, healthier choices about what they eat and how they snack. BEAR’s Grrreat Food Quest provides all the free resources you need to get started.

Enter the competition, click on .pdfs below to download and print them out.   

Complete the quest by encouraging your pupils to share their healthy food choices and they could win some great prizes. Two lucky winners will get their paws on a play kitchen and accessories for your school and a month’s supply of BEAR yoyos for your class! Print out the competition entry form and return them by Wednesday 29th April for your chance to win!

You can scan, or take a high-quality photograph of the competition entry forms, and email them to competitions@nationalschoolspartnership.com or share them with @bearnibbles on Instagram and Facebook.

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.
