We greatly value the support our PTFA give in helping us to build and maintain a lively, happy and well-resourced school for our children. All parents of children at our school are automatically members of the PTFA and are very much welcomed at our regular informal meetings.
What is the PTFA?
PTFA stands for Parents, Teachers and Friends Association. It is a voluntary organisation that brings together parents, carers, staff and friends of Marton to raise much needed funds for our school through organising fun events for our school community such as Monstersâ€™ Disco, Christmas & Summer Fairs, Quiz and Games Nights and BBQs.
How often are the meetings?
The PTFA meets officially once every half term. Members may sometimes arrange to meet together informally before an event to finalise arrangements. This is entirely up to you!
When and where do the meetings take place?
Meetings usually take place at 6 p.m. in the School Library. Simply, come to the front entrance of school on the day of the meeting and staff will show you where to go. Our school is fortunate in having such a successful and active PTFA.
Can I Be Involved?
All parents and carers are automatically members of our PTFA and are most welcome to attend any meeting. New faces and ideas are always very welcome. However, if due to family / work commitments you are unable to attend meetings you can still be involved by supporting events.
For example, by collecting raffle prizes, delivering leaflets, helping to set up and clear away stalls, selling refreshments to name but a few. Whatever support you can give will always be welcomed.
Contact The PTFA
Members of the PTFA can be contacted by forwarding a letter via the school office.
Alternatively, you may wish to telephone school and leave a message for a member of the Committee who will then return your call at the earliest convenience.
