For Parents of pupils who are on the SEND register
Learning Express Rooms, Wednesday 14th December 2016. 9 am - 11 am
Parents are invited to get involved in the new PTFA by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have three activities on the planning sheet:
- 1. A Year 7 disco around Valentine’s Day
- 2. A raffle for families and friends of the school
- 3. A series of quiz nights throughout the Spring and Summer terms 2017.
Our initial focus is raising funds for extra facilities for children during breaks and lunch-times.
We would welcome more ideas especially to get the adults together. This is a new adventure so new members and new ideas are warmly welcomed.
The DofE is the world’s leading youth achievement award, giving millions of 14 to 24-year-olds the opportunity to be the very best they can be.
St John Fisher is currently in the process of becoming a Licenced Organisation to offer learners in Year 9 – Year 12 the opportunity to gain a DofE Award from January 2017 onwards.
Due to works taking place in the residential development opposite the school on Ashfields New Road, there is no parking available opposite the school. It is anticipated that this will remain in place for the foreseeable future. There will be long delays in the evenings getting into and leaving Ashfields New Road. As a result of this, it is suggested that you make alternative arrangements to pick up your child.
Also in light of these works and the hour going back at the weekend, I would ask you to speak with your child about the importance of road safety and general safety walking to and from school. Thank you as always for your continued support.
Mr G Murray, Assistant Headteacher

Dear Parents and Friends of St John Fisher Catholic College,
We are re-launching our parent-teacher body under a new name: St John Fisher’s Parents, Teachers and Friends Association or PTFA for short.
We have already got a team of nearly twenty members of staff who are involved and some parents have already expressed interest.
On Monday 3rd October we had the 6 Nations rugby trophy in our school. This was a fantastic opportunity for all the school to see the Trophy.
A team of year 10 D&T students travelled to Aintree Motor Speedway track on 21st September to compete in a Greenpower F24 Qualifying race. We took two cars. A kit car which was funded by our sponsors KMF and a car we built from scratch using an old car ‘roof pod’ for a body. We left school at 7:30 and arrived at Aintree at 9:00 where we went straight to scrutineering to get the cars checked for roadworthiness before going out for a practice session to get the drivers used to the track and fine tune the cars.
