We are proud to work with all the Catholic schools across our two local authority areas, particularly as the Trust grows and benefits from the expertise and knowledge that other schools joining in the future will bring.

St Marys PTFA

(Parent, Teacher & Friends Association)

All parents of children attending St Mary's Catholic Primary Academy are members of the Parent Teacher Friends Association – how much or how little you involve yourself is up to you.  We are a group of parents and staff that have as our main role to encourage closer links between home and school.

We undertake fundraising work to raise funds which are intended to provide ‘extras’ not already provided by the school – these are often the ‘fun things’ that make learning more interesting and exciting (eg. playground equipment, Forest School, ongoing development of outdoor playground, subsidising school trip transport).

We are always looking for new ideas for fundraising events and if you can help then that is a bonus. Please feel free to approach any member of the PTFA if you want to suggest, ask or offer anything at all.

Some of the events we hold include film nights, fayres, gift shops and charity bag donations. 

If you would like to hear more about the PTFA or get in touch with our committee for more information please email:
