Our Parents and Friends

Who are St Marys PTFA?

We are a group of parents, teachers and members of the wider school community who work hard to raise much-needed funds to support the school in providing the best educational experience for St Mary’s children.

What we do?

We organise and run numerous events during the school year for children and families to enjoy whilst raising money to enhance the children's primary school experience. Events include discos, the summer & Christmas fayre, cinema evenings, bingo, quizzes, pamper evenings, BBQs and more.

Why we do it.

The funding received by schools is under increasing strain.  Our fundraising enables the school to offer an additional range of exciting and engaging experiences and resources. Over recent years the PTfA funds have helped to pay for a new Trim Trail, iPads, a visiting pantomime, equipment for gardening club, electronic spellcheckers, under-water cameras and the very popular Space Dome!

Fancy joining us?

Committee meetings take place a few times each term and we usually meet in the pub! If you'd rather just help out at events, please let us know and we'd be very happy to add you to our list of volunteers. Any time that you can spare would be gratefully received! It's also a great way to meet parents and friends outside of your child's year group. We’re also keen to hear about any fundraising ideas that you might have.

The PTfA is an efficient & successful fundraising group and we'd love to keep the momentum going for future generations! Our current Chairperson is Katie McGrath and she has two children in Years 3 and 6.

Funds for the school are also raised through Easyfundraising.org.uk

Parent/Teacher Representative

St Marys PTFA have an established parent representative scheme. A parent volunteer liaises with the class teacher / TA to remind the parents in that class about activities which are going on and items which need to be brought into school e.g. Wellly walks, non-uniform days, harvest festival donations etc.  

We have found that this is especially useful for parents that are unable to drop off and collect their children due to their work or other commitments.
