Friends (PTA)

Friends of St Mary's School is a registered charity open to parents, teaching staff, Governors and anyone interested in the welfare of the school. We are a vibrant, dynamic group and our aim is to make our childrens' education a rich, varied and fun experience. We believe that a school is a community to which every parent can contribute for the benefit of their children.

We hold a number of fund raising events throughout the year including fairs, discos, car washes, cake sales and fun runs. We also organise non-profit events such as the Easter bingo and football for the children of St Mary's.

Most years we raise in excess of £5000. This money has been spent on playground equipment including Naomi's Trail, the pond; the infants play area and the climbing walls. We regularly fund educational and sports equipment requested by the teachers, as well as cultural and musical experiences for the children.

We meet monthly and welcome any new members!
