PTA: Parent Teacher Association
Our aim is to raise much needed funds for the school in order to provide new equipment and encounters that enhance and enrich the educational experience of the pupils at St Michael’s. We do this by organising fun events that our school community can enjoy.
As a parent, carer or teacher of a child at the school you are automatically a member of the PTA and we would love to see you at our meetings to share your thoughts, ideas and opinions.
The PTA Committee:
There are 6 posts on the committee which are re-elected each year at the AGM in March/April. The committee meet at least once a term and the committee is re-elected each year.
The committee are responsible for approving the events calendar and ensuring the funds raised by these events are managed responsibly in accordance with the charity commission’s regulations.
The present committee members elected in April 2019 are:
Rachael Ryan (Chair)
Phil Wren (Vice Chair)
Christine Ancker (Secretary)
Sonia Allen (Vice Secretary)
Steve Monaghan (Treasurer)
Sarah Lee (Vice Treasurer)
Each term a general PTA meeting is held which is open to all parents, carers and teachers and gives the PTA committee the opportunity to share what events are planned and how the funds raised are being apportioned.
Each event is planned and managed by a separate event committee and parents, carers and teachers are always needed to volunteer in the planning and running of each of these events to ensure they run smoothly. Please get in touch if you are interested in helping with one of our events.
If you want more information about the PTA, please speak to a member of the committee or your Class Rep. Alternatively, please use the PTA email box to get in touch firstname.lastname@example.org
You may also wish to complete a parent questionnaire to let us know how you would like to get involved, which can either be emailed in or handed in at the office and marked for the attention of the PTA.
