The Family and Friends of Victoria Park Junior School (FAF!) was formed in 2012 to raise funds, organise social activities and to link with the Infant School's Parents, Friends and Teachers Association (PFTA).


As with many schools, the work of the association is greatly valued both in terms of fund-raising and providing some of the "extras" we enjoy in and around school.

In recent years, funds raised through events such as the Summer Fair and Spring Disco have paid for the Christmas Pantomime, Yr 6 Leavers' Gifts and the hire of Longford Park Stadium for our annual Sports Day!



FAF! also works with the PFTA each year to organise the Literature and Arts Festival, a wonderful event which brings families together to enjoy and get involved with all kinds of things related to books, stories, music, art and drama!


You can keep up with meetings and events by joining the FAF! Facebook group: FAF! Victoria Park Junior School. You can also join our email distribution list by contacting Nicola Body (
