PTA

Welcome to St Michael’s PTA

 

The fundamental aim of the PTA is to enhance the experience of all children at St Michael’s by developing positive relationships between staff, pupils and parents.

We always welcome new ideas and we urge you to get involved and to keep in touch.

 

St Michael’s PTA consists of Mums, Dads, Grandparents and Teachers of the School.  We all give a small amount of time throughout the school year to raise much needed funds.  Our efforts deliver equipment and experiences for all pupils that could not otherwise be provided from the normal school budget.
