Mrs Ethelston's PTFA

Sadly we have not received any offers for the role of Chair, Vice Chair and Secretary. These are integral roles within the committee and if we do not get any volunteers we will have to look at disbanding the PTFA. We can not legally continue without people in these positions
If we have to close down Mrs E's PTFA there will be no discos, Christmas craft workshop, subsidy class trips, art supplies for the school, school garden, termly stop the clock days, subsidy of Yr 6 hoodies, external practitioners (offering experiences in art, sports and with bugs and birds) refreshments at all events, such as; plays, concerts, worships, enterprise day, sports day - the list goes on!*
It also means we won't have the funds available for one-off items needed by the school, examples of which are; laptops x6, abacus math programme, TT Rockstars, active learn programme, PA sound system, travel to Christmas pantomime, cooking facilities, choir workshop - again, only to name a few!
The positions can be shared and between two people it won't be an onerous one. 
If you would like all our children to have the best educational experience, then please email  
*Our usual calendar of events will have to be a little different this year, we’re working on some great alternatives - which are still only possible if there’s a PTFA! 
Kind regards

Notice to Parents

The Trust Board of Acorn Multi Academy Trust has agreed to submit a request for a variation to be made to the Admissions arrangements for Mrs Ethelston's CE Primary Academy for 2021-22, in respect of the over-subscription criteria relating to church attendance.

The variation requested is that " In the event that during the period specified for attendance at worship the church has been closed for public worship and has not provided alternative premises for that worship, the requirements of these [admissions] arrangements in relation to attendance will only apply to the period when the church or alternative premises have been available for public worship". 

If you need to contact the school please use the main email address, the phone will not always be monitored.
