St Mary & St Michael Catholic Primary

Learning together as we follow in the footsteps of Christ


The PTFA's role is to encourage closer links between home and school through fundraising activities and social events organised for the pupils and families of the school and local Catholic Parish community. 


Funds raised are used for providing additional activities and facilities, for the use of the school and it's pupils, not otherwise already provided by the school via its allocated budgets.  It is also responsible for the upkeep and repair of items previously supplied by the PTFA. 


Past funding has included the provision of the school swimming pool, a donation twoards the refurbishment of the library, class books, a new stage, outdoor equipment, 30 ipads and most recently the installation of a new climbing frame in both the infant and junior playgrounds. 


We try to organise several events each term and these include some for the children such as discos, hot dog days, pancake day, and some for the adults such as afternoon tea, golf nights, quiz nights, and also family events such as beach BBQ's, Summer Fetes, bingo nights and our annual Advent Bazaar. 


As a parent of a child at SMSM, you will automatically become a member of the PTFA and are invited to attend our meetings which are held every half term in the evenings at school.
