Welcome to the PTFA
Hello and welcome to St Michael’s PTFA (Parent, Teacher and Friends Association)! 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, 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. The more hands we have to help, the fewer jobs 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!

Take a look at this video of one of our new playhouses being built. The money raised at the Summer Fair has been spent on three new playhouses and two new shelters for the children to enjoy, chosen by the members of the School Council.

Tickets for all the PTFA events are bookable via the 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.
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
For those who have wondered how the "Secret Present Room" works, here are a few photos....
