Gorseybrigg Primary School and Nursery


Our Mission Statement:
To positively impact the lives of all children and families.

Welcome to the PTFA page. We are a small group of parents who, with the support of staff and friends, plan and run various fundraising activities throughout the school year.

We meet informally roughly once a term to discuss new ideas and to organise events such as the Summer Fayre, the Christmas Market, film nights, discos and uniform sales.

This year our main focus has been to raise money to improve the outdoor area. We would love to have better equipment for the children to play on, some areas of shade for when the weather is hot and would like to extend the area the children have to play on when they weather is not so nice. We have set a target of £10,000 to begin this work and we are getting close!

We always welcome new parents / carers / friends to join us for meetings – getting involved is a good way to meet other parents and teachers throughout the school, while doing something which will have a positive impact on our children. Dates of future meetings will be displayed on the PTFA noticeboard and on our closed Facebook page. We also like to hear your thoughts and ideas on events you would like to see take place – you can contact us on

Please find more details in the attached information booklet

PTFA Go Fund Me Page

We would love for children to have equipment to climb on, swing from and play on but at our school they have a small concrete playground and a field which they can’t use for much of the year. The PTFA have been working tirelessly for 3 years to raise some money but what we really want to do will cost over £30,000. 

As we all know the current funding situations in schools doesn’t allow for large projects such as this, so if anyone would be willing to donate a sum of money- no matter how large all small- you will make our children (and our PTFA members ) very happy!

Many thanks for supporting us,
Gorseybrigg PTFA.

Playground Renovation

Below are photos of the initial renovations that are taking place on the playground. On a very wet March Sunday the PTFA did an amazing job of removing the old play equipment and preparing the ground for our new play area.  The PTFA are hoping that work will begin on the new playground during the Easter holidays.



July 2019 - Phase 1 Complete


On Monday 17th June 2019 the PTFA organised a sponsored run for all children (Nursery through to Year 6).  The children were expected to complete as many laps of the school field as they could and parents were invited to watch, encourage and support.  Thank you to all our wonderful parents, grandparents, family and friends the PTFA have raised a huge £1073. Thank you to everyone for all your support and contributions.
