Welcome to Mapledene's PTFA!


The PTFA would just like to take this opportunity to check in for the 2021/22 academic year and welcome any new families that have joined us. 
Over the year, we will be organising events, like craft competitions, raffles and other exciting events although some still may look different due to Covid 19. 
As a PTFA, we aim to organise a range of events throughout the year that bring the community together, offer fundraising opportunities
 and enrich the life of each child at Mapledene primary School. 

As a PTFA, we will communicate through letters sent home and also if you wish to ask any questions then please send them to with the title PTFA in the subject line. Any letters that are sent home, will also be available at the bottom of this webpage too. 
Please keep an eye out for many exciting events and opportunities this year. 


Kind regards, 



2021 and 2022

Mini Christmas Fair


This year, in light of Covid rates and the new variant of concern, we will be holding our Christmas Fair for children only. Each child will get the chance to visit the Christmas Fair on Monday 13th December. There will be lots of prizes up for grabs and we know that, like last year, each child will enjoy their visit. Please scroll down to the bottom of the page to find the letter with more information. Also check back after Monday 13th December to see some of our photos of what is sure to be an amazing event.

Belated Summer Fair


Our Summer Fair, which was postponed due to Covid 19, took place on Saturday 25th September. The event was a huge success and it was so BRILLIANT to have the whole community back together again in person. It was fantastic to see many families taking part in the activities and a huge thank you to Solihull Round Table and The Hope Community Shop for funding many of the activities meaning they were free to all those who attended. 


A huge thank you to all those staff and parents who volunteered their time, which allowed the event to be so successful once more. Have a look at some of our photos below.

PTFA Summer Fayre


This year, we are very hopeful that we will be able to hold our annual Summer Fayre. The Summer Fayre will be held on Saturday 3rd July, if the government roadmap allows us. Our Summer Fayres are normally a huge success and are an opportunity for our whole school community to get together and raise money for the school.

In preparation for the fayre, we will be holding a non-uniform day on Friday 28th May. On this day, if possible, children are asked to bring in a bottle, chocolates or a 50p donation and can wear their own clothes.

Are you feeling crafty? Do you love an Easter bonnet? Well this is the competition for you! 

We are looking forward to seeing entries from children across the school in our Easter and Spring craft competition. Entries can be as creative as you want, as long as they are around our theme. It costs just 50p to enter per child and there will be winners in Early Years, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. Please head to the bottom of the page for the letter which contains all the details. 

Entries must be photographed and sent to, any entries that are brought into school will be sent home again due to Covid restrictions. 



PTFA Christmas Treasure Hunt - Get your maps now!

Thank you to all parents and families who volunteered to put a letter up in their window. We were truly overwhelmed by the response and are very happy that this event is able to go ahead. Due to the large response, we have not been able to use every house that volunteered. However, we are going to run 2 different routes. Both routes will be up and ready for the Christmas holidays. If you have been picked to put up a letter in your window, you will be notified by a separate letter. Please check the letter at the bottom of the page that explains how you can buy a map for either or both routes. Each map costs 50p. 

If your child is in Year 1 or Year 5, they will receive their letter when they return to school. Alternatively, you can send an email to with your child's name and the map/maps you want and then send the donation when they return to school.


PTFA Meet and Greet - Zoom


As a PTFA we can't hold our normal meet and greet session, so this year we will be holding a Zoom meeting instead. All parents are welcome to join in order to hear more about the work the PTFA do and how you can help. I hope you agree that the PTFA is an integral part of our school community and we are always looking to welcome new volunteers, who can choose to help in big or small roles. As well as this, the PTFA is a brilliant place to meet new parents too.  Please read the letter at the bottom of the page for more information about the Zoom meeting and the word the PTFA do. A date will be decided closer to Christmas. 

PTFA Christmas Treasure Hunt
Parents we need YOU! We would like to run a Christmas Treasure Hunt in the local area over the Christmas holidays. In order for this to be successful, we need families, who live locally, to volunteer to put up a poster with a letter on it in a window. The window needs to be easy to see from the path and school will provide the letter. If we have enough households, the letters will spell a Christmas anagram and the PTFA will sell a map so that families can 'hunt' for the letters over the holidays and work out the anagram. Please find the letter under the PTFA letters at the bottom of the page.
