Welcome to the PTFA
Hello and welcome to St Michael’s PTFA! By being a parent or carer at St Michael’s we are all automatically members of the PTFA and our ultimate aim is to enhance the learning experiences of our children by raising funds to extend the opportunities available to them at school.
We’re a friendly bunch and we meet once every term, and more regularly when we are working towards an event. We share the workload so that nobody ever goes home with a long list of jobs, and the more hands we have to help then the fewer jobs that are involved.
We are a Registered Charity No: 1035983 and are members of Parentkind UK.
On the pages which follow we can introduce you to the PTFA Team, our calendar of events and show you how we have spent the most recent monies raised.
If you have any questions then please do not hesitate to contact via email or our Facebook page. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Chair: Gillian Coleman (children in Years 4 and 1)
Dare to be Different Day
Have you ever had even felt that, even for just one day, you'd like to be different from everyone else? For just one day (at school at least), now you can. The PTFA are bringing you "Dare to be Different Day" where you can donate a suggested amount to be totally different to everyone else. Will you colour your hair (temporarily of couse), colour your nails (boys and girls), or maybe wear your pyjama's or a sports kit to school? The more diverse you are, the higher the suggested donation.
Look out for more details coming soon.
Always a fun day for all of the children that attend, not to mention the big children (i.e. adults) that help out!
Christmas Secret Room
A lovely day where children get taken out of class and can pick presents in our "secret" room for their loved ones, then take them home and hide them ready for the big day.
Following on from the success of previous trails organised by the PTFA, we are planning to have another over the Christmas holidays. Again, more details to follow.
Your School Lottery
The lottery has started! There is a guaranteed prize for one lucky ticket holder from each participating school, plus a chance to win a top prize of £25k! Other prizes available. Tickets can be purchased from www.yourschoollottery.co.uk then find St Michaels CofE VC Primary School.
Tickets are £1 each with payments being collected by monthly direct debit.
Tickets for all the PTFA events are bookable via the new PTA Events Website. Parents/Carers will need to register on the website in order to be able to book and pay for tickets for events such as Fireworks, the Christmas Event and Secret presents.
How You Can Help
All of our events are fun and rewarding for parents and children alike, and great for the community. We are always in need of volunteers to help on the day - events like these take a huge amount of organising and there's lots to be done on the day to enable all the activities to take place. Without the support of people like you the events would have to be scaled down or cancelled.
Why not get involved with our next event? Please get in touch if you can help - even if it's just an hour on the day. Every offer gratefully received.
Love Shopping for Bargains?!
If so, you need to join our team of bargain hunters who snap up bargains all year round. The PTFA "Secret Room" is open for Mother's Day, Father's Day and Christmas Day presents, but we can never have too many thrifty shoppers. In addition, if you love wrapping let us know - you can either take a bag of presents to wrap and drop back to school, or join others for a "wrapping" social.
Support us when you shop with Amazon.
Please visit the webpage below when shopping and collect free donations for us.
You are able to raise funds for the PTFA when purchasing name labels, we have accounts with 2 companies:
Stikins www.stikins.co.uk School number 21122
My Nametags www.mynametags.com School number 29355
