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.

As a parent you are an automatic member of the PTA, so please do come along and become an active member. Committee meetings are typically held once per month on the first Thursday at 7pm at the school. You do not have to be a committee member to attend the PTA meeting, if you plan to attend talk to one of the committee members in advance to check the date and time.
