The PTFA has been an active group of people supporting English Martyrs School for over 50 years and it would be very sad to see this disappear.
Remember that you are all automatically a member of the PTFA when your child joins the school but under no obligation to attend meetings and events. However, we do need more support from parents and families to enable the PTFA to continue their valuable work. Without the extra funding they raise, we would not be able to supply your children with extra facilities, enjoyable events (film nights, fetes), Christmas parties and gifts, as our normal budget does not stretch to this. All these events provide your children with great experiences and memories to carry forward from their time at English Martyrs.
The PTFA are looking for a new chair. Please put your name forward and come to the next meeting which is on 17th January at Ex Service Man’s club, Hillmorton for the AGM. If you would like to bring a second to this meeting please feel free to do so.
The PTFA have funded many items around the school. The wellie stands for KS1 and Reception are a great success and recently, the PTFA paid for our Humanities Timeline which takes pride of place in our school corridor. Since its arrival, I have learnt so many facts… Did you know that the Teddy Bear was invented in 1902 in the USA?! We are hoping to utilise our new timeline in lessons across the school so classes can use it in their History and Geography lessons.
