St Mary’s R.C Primary School ‘Faith in Education’


St Mary's RC Primary School is fortunate to benefit from the support of a dedicated, hardworking PTA.  The PTA is a group of enthusiastic, supportive parents who meet periodically to organise social  events for our school's pupils and their families to enjoy.  The running of these events enables them to raise funds to support the school in improving provision and opportunities for our pupils.   All parents are encouraged to join the PTA -to do this come along to one of our meetings and see what you can do to help contribute to the success of PTA events.  Meeting dates and times are advertised to all parents via Parentmail and on posters around school.

The work of the PTA is co-ordinated by a committee.  Therse committee members are nominated and elected by the PTA.  Our committee members are currently:

Chair - Mr. Neil Anderson and Mr. Nathan Hearn

Treasurer - Mrs Elaine McVeigh

Secretary - Mrs Erica Carlisle and Mrs. Sarah Talbot

The PTA's fundraising supports the school in providing a range of resources that enhance our curriculum offer and ensure that our children have access to high quality opportunities.

In recent years the PTA have supported the school in the following ways:


  •  Match funding for Ipads to ensure adequate resources for whole class projects.
  • Funding towards the purchase of a class set of Pocket Trumpets to enable all pupils in Year 5 and Year 6 to have weekly instrumental tuition.


  • Funding to improve the outdoor environment in our Nursery - an local Artist came and worked with the children to design some murals which when painted were hung and now provide a stimulus for imaginative play.
  • Contribution towards the cost of a Year 6 leavers party organised by parents.


  • Provided funding for a theatre company to come into school and perform the Pantomime 'Scroogical' which was enjoyed by all pupils in school.
  • Funding for purchase of 'Blue Bots' to ensure that our youngest pupils have access to high quality equipment to develop their coding skills as part of the IT Curriculum.
