Welcome to Upton Priory PTFA (Parents, Teachers and Friends Association) at Upton Priory School and thank you so much for taking an interest in our page!

We are a friendly, lively and dynamic group of parents, carers and school staff, all committed to supporting our school and its pupils by raising funds. Some members are full-time parents, some work part-time, and many work full-time. None of us are experts in fundraising but we all play our part in working together as a team and the end results are very rewarding.

We help fund all the ‘nice to have’ extras that contribute towards our children having the best time possible as they journey through the school, such as:

Creating a friendship garden, purchasing digital cameras, providing toys for the playground, lollies for sports day, part funding school trips, giving presents at Christmas time, Year 6 leavers BBQ and much more!

There are a number of ways you can help too. Whatever time you have to give, the PTFA is a great opportunity to meet other Parents, get to know the teachers and make new friends. Most of our organising is done via email or facebook so you don’t have to commit to attending meetings!

Here’s an example of what’s needed:

  • Simply sign up to our 50/50 Club to win cash prizes
  • Spread the word, be a PTFA rep for your Childs class
  • Provide raffle prizes or items needed for events (I.e. Halloween decoration)
  • Help from home, behind the scenes (I.e wrapping Christmas presents for the children)
  • Volunteer at our events, a couple of hours would be fab.
  • Join the PTFA committee and help make us bigger and better.


Our meetings are held at The Silk Trader in Macclesfield, usually from 7:15pm on a Monday!

Look out for details of meetings via parentmail.
