The Gateways Parents and Friends Association.

The core committee is an enthusiastic group of parents and teachers from the school who work together to organise social events and other initiatives to fundraise for Gateways. The PFA work tirelessly to put together a year of fundraising events to improve the lives of all our students!

The PFA aims to develop and sustain a strong, fun and beneficial community within Gateways School.

Watch our video here!

  • Our current aim is to raise £25,000 for a new Forest School facility on our school grounds!

Thanks to the support of our fundraising events and initiatives by the wider school community, a large number of items have been purchased for the school. To date, these have included, but are not limited to:

• a grand piano

• sound and lighting equipment

• play equipment

• climbing walls

• library books and DVDs.

Name Tags

Gateways PFA have recently partnered with MyNametags.  My Nametags’ school labels are perfect for rough everyday school use, and the labels stay on wash after wash.  My Nametags colour stickers can be stuck into school uniform and clothing, and stay on in the wash, covering all your labelling needs for back-to-school. Just apply them to the washing or care labels of the clothes, and they will stay on for years. The name tags can also be used for school ties, other school wear and any other clothing, as well as for all equipment, such as PE bags, lunchboxes, bottles and books. You can also use the stickers to label shoes. The school labels can bend around curved items and they are very easy to put on. It couldn’t be simpler!  Better still, the PFA will receive 20% of all orders received towards their current fund raising target.  To order, simply follow this link http://www.mynametags.com/ and use our school code 3372 when placing an order.  Thanks for your support.
