OUR AMAZING PTFA

The Parents', Teachers' and Friends' Association is a registered charity which aims to raise funds for the benefit of the school. As a parent of a child in the school, you are automatically a member of the Association, and, as such, you are welcome to attend PTFA meetings.
We also have representatives for each class (class reps), who liaise between the PTFA and parents in each year group. Please see one of your class representatives or join our helpers' Facebook group if you are able to help out at any events, even if it is only for an hour. We couldn’t raise the amount of money that we do without the contribution of everyone at the school: parents, staff and children alike.
In 2015 the Infant and Junior PTFAs joined forces to become one committee overseeing events for both schools. The current committee is busy planning and organising some fun and exciting events for this academic year.
The PTFA has arranged school discos, bake sales, our termly Movie Magic screenings and a highly successful summer event. We are always open to new ideas and have some exciting additions to this year’s calendar which you find here:
We need you!
The PTFA needs you!
We are always looking for parents to get involved – be it offering ideas or sponsorship or simply volunteering for an hour to help at an event. Our group is very informal, friendly and great fun. And don’t worry - you won’t get roped into anything you don’t want to do. To get in touch, please speak to one the members or join our St Mary’s PTFA Helpers Facebook group.
Bookings and payments
Our PTFA aims to be as cashless and paperless as possible! All bookings and payments are made via our online system at:

PTFA Wreath Making at Home
As things are a little bit different this year, we are bringing our wreath-making sessions to you at home. Wreath making kits will cost £10 each and will include everything you need to make a beautiful Christmas wreath for your home.
Each kit will include a moss-covered foam wreath, super-fresh greenery, pine cones, as well as other decorative items.
If you've never make one before, fear not, as we will be providing you with instructions and a tutorial video to follow.
To order your kit now, visit www.pta-events.co.uk/stmarys
The deadline for ordering is Wednesday 2 December at 11pm, and packs will be available to collect from school on Friday 11th December.
You can purchase as many kits as you wish. Why not make one as a gift for a friend or neighbour, make it your new family tradition, or even purchase them with friends and make a virtual evening of it together.
