Parents' Association (TPA)
The Tooting Parents Association (TPA) is the parent-teacher association for Tooting Primary School. Founded when the school opened in 2013, the TPA is a registered charity that supports the school and promotes friendship.
The TPA has raised in excess of £50,000 for the school and this money has helped transform the ways in which our children learn and play. The playgrounds have play equipment, including a very popular climbing wall, friendship bench, greenery and the lower hall has a new stage thanks to the generosity of parents. The TPA also subsidises many of the trips children go on and workshops they take part in.
If you have a child at Tooting Primary School, you are already a member of the TPA. You don't have wait to be invited, or join the committee.
Please look out for our regular newsletter updates, as well as event advertising through parent emails, Facebook, the class rep WhatsApp groups and the playground notice boards.

You can also help us to raise funds for the school in the following ways:
Employer matched fundraising
If your employer offers a matched fundraising scheme, please ask them to support any fundraising you do for the TPA. So far, we have raised over £4,000 in matched fundraising.
School uniform labels
Need to label your child's uniform? Order name labels from Easy2Name and select 'Tooting Primary School SW17' at checkout. They will give us 20% cashback.
Scooting the school run
Scooting is a popular and healthy way to tackle the school run – for adults as well as kids! Buy your scooters and accessories from microscooters.co.uk and use code 139592 to help earn money or scooters for the school.
