Stapleford School Friends Association (SSFA)

Contact the SSFA by emailing

The SSFA is a very good way to bring together parents, teachers and others who are interested in supporting the school. It provides an opportunity for everyone to work together with a common goal. All parents and teachers can get involved if they want to even if they only have a small amount of time available. We are a friendly, sociable group with the school, its children and staff at the heart of all we do.

Why is being involved in the SSFA a ‘good thing’?

It can help parents:

  • improve the school
  • get to know each other – whilst taking part in a range of activities
  • to have a friendly ear if they want to talk about something
  • find out more about how they can help the school work
  • fundraise for extra items or services to enrich the children’s education

It can help children:

  • receive a richer education as a result of items bought by the SSFA
  • benefit from your increased understanding of how to help the school

It can help teachers:

  • reach potential volunteers and enthusiasts who may help with school projects
  • use the resources and facilities etc purchased by the SSFA

What does the SSFA do?
