School motto here



​Welcome to St. Mary's PTA

The aim of the St Mary's PTA is to organise events for the school throughout the academic year.  We raise much needed funds to provide facilities, equipment and learning experiences which both support and benefit the children, families and adults at St. Mary's.

This year we hope to raise £5,000 which will help the school to either resurface parts of the playground, provide a sun canopy to shade the children when playing outside or invest in learning tablets.  We can not do this without your help!  

We need volunteers to make these events as successful as possible. If you are happy to help out at any event or have any other ideas then please email  Every little bit helps us all and ensures that we can continue funding things like the Owl Lady, Christmas party, contributing towards school trips and major purchases like last years Pirate Ship in the back playground.

PS.  A way to fund raise easily... easyfundraising!

Did you know that whenever you buy anything online this Christmas - from the perfect gift and novelty socks to your turkey and pantomime tickets - you could be raising a free donation for St Mary's?
There are nearly 3,000 retailers on board ready to make a donation, including Amazon, John Lewis, Aviva, thetrainline, and Sainsbury's - it doesn't cost you a penny extra!
It's really simple, all you have to do is:
1. Join.
Head to and sign up for free.
2. Shop.
Every time you shop online, go to easyfundraising first, pick the retailer you want and start shopping.
3. Raise.
After you've checked out, that retailer will make a donation to your good cause for no extra cost whatsoever!
Please help us this Christmas by giving more than a gift - there are no catches or hidden charges and St Mary's will be really grateful for your donations.
Thank you for your support.
