Welcome to Friends of Rye Primary


What we do

· We organise fun events for the children such as the Summer Fete & Christmas Fair

· We raise funds for the school through the events we organise and via fundraising applications to different organisations

· We help the school get extra resources and develop outdoor areas

· We help fund extra curricular activities and learning opportunities for the children

· We help facilitate communication between parents and guardians and the school

  • We encourage links with the local community

Here are some recent examples of how our funds make a difference; gifts for all pupils at the Christmas Fair, school trips, outdoor equipment & clothing, new play areas and exciting prizes for attendance awards.




Friends of Rye Community Primary and Pugwash Nursery is your PTA. We are a voluntary group who support the school, pupils and parents and raises money to provide those ‘extras’ that enrich our children’s learning experience.

How you can help


As a parent or carer of a child at Rye Community Primary School or Pugwash Nursery, you are automatically a member of your PTA group. You have a vote in the decisions we make and are welcome to join us, help us and contribute your ideas.


Any help you can give is much appreciated, even 1 hour a year! There are lots of areas within which we need parent and guardians to help us from events, to the school library, to the forest school to bake sales and individual fundraising events.


Ways to get in touch

If you would like to get involved or have a fundraising idea of your own, we’d love to hear from you.

You can complete this quick online form to tell us how you would like to help.
