We All Join In

PTA

When your child or grandchild joins St Martin's School you automatically become a member of St Martin's School PTA.... so read on to find out more about what we do...

Who are we and what do we do?

The PTA (Parent Teacher Association) is an enthusiastic team of parents who work hard to support the school in a variety of ways.  In particular, by organising fundraising events which we hope are enjoyable as well as raising much needed funds.  

We run a number of events and sales throughout the year, ranging from cake sales to movie afternoons, bingo nights and fetes. Details of upcoming events can be found on the PTA Events page, or take a look at our Facebook page.

The money raised is spent in ways which directly benefit the children, such as buying equipment or paying for 'little extras' to support the children's learning.

Minibus

Our single largest expense is currently funding the lease of the school minibus, which enables the children to enjoy a wide number of trips and learning experiences outside the school. As this lease expires soon, we're currently fundraising towards buying our own minibus, which would free up more PTA money to be used in other ways.

Whilst we have already received some very generous donations, there’s still a very long way to go.  If you are aware of an organization that might be willing to help us, please do get in touch. All donations, no matter the size, will be very gratefully received.

100 Club

Tickets for our 100 Club are now on sale for the 2019-20 academic year. £25 (just over £2 a month) gives you entry into a prize draw every month for a year, with cash prizes of up to £60, £25 and £15 awarded every month and a bumper double prize fund in December, meaning prizes of £120, £50 and £30. To find out more, or reserve your number, download a copy of the entry form. Tickets are strictly limited to 100, so get yours NOW.

Need uniform?

The PTA holds a stock of 2nd hand school uniform.  You can order uniform at any time by completing our uniform order form and we will deliver the requested items to your child's classroom.
