The overall aim of the PTA is:
- To build strong and effective relationships with our families that go beyond the curriculum and learning.
- To recognise and value parent's/carer's role in the education and learning process.
As your child is a member of St Matthew’s Catholic School, you are automatically a member of our PTA…your voice really does count!
We are looking to relaunch our group to organise events to raise money for educational and fun purposes for our children, we also organise out of school social events too. Being active in the PTA can be rewarding and fun, while at the same time raising vital funds for our children.
There are a variety of small ways you can help and be involved – from designing a poster, cleaning up after an event, making tea and coffee, baking cakes, helping out on a stall…so many ways.
It’s totally flexible
Giving up just 30 minutes of your time to help the PTA is invaluable. If everyone could spare 30minutes a term to help, just think what we could achieve!
You don’t have to attend PTA meetings – you can use our contact details to send in ideas for discussion.
You’ll feel more connected
Every PTA event is an opportunity to meet other parents in the same situation as you.
There’s no better way to know what events are being planned, have your say or make new fundraising suggestions, than by offering your help and support.
We’re not just for Mums!
It’s important to our PTA, our school and our pupils to have dads represented on our committee and to help reach out to other dads, are you a dad with a skill that would come in useful?
See the smiles on your children’s faces and know that you have played a part in making school a little more fun! Help plan fun events, socials and get-togethers. Suggest NEW fun ways to raise funds.
Our children are only at school for a relatively short time. PTA events such as Disco and other social events will be remembered fondly by our children for a lifetime. The equipment and resources the PTA helps fund, make learning even more engaging and fun.
Help us continue to create lasting memories for our children.
