PTA LogoThe Federation of Fountains Earth and St Cuthbert's Primary Schools are lucky enough to have two Parent Teachers Association (PTA) groups one for each school. These groups are called The Friends of St Cuthberts and the Friends of Lofthouse School. Both groups have been running for a number of years.
The Friends consist of a group of volunteer parents and teachers, organising a number of events throughout the school year. The Friends raise valuable funds, contributing to a range of educational equipment and school trips/activities. They also run a number of social events for parents and children.
