It's AGM time for the PTFA!  And refreshments and nibbles provided!


As all Parents and Carers are automatically PTFA members, we invite you to our Annual General Meeting (AGM).  It's on Monday the 9th October at 8pm at the school.  We look forward to seeing you there!  We are a very friendly bunch and love to meet as many of you as possible.   We will be discussing what we've been up to over the past year as well as what we've got planned for the near future.

If you have any spare time, we'd be delighted if you would please volunteer to help us at our many events for fun and fundraising for the school.  We also have positions on the committee that always need filling, or to share the tasks of a current incumbent.

  Welcome...

A warm welcome awaits you at the Parent, Teacher & Friends Association of St. Mary’s Catholic Primary School in Bicester (PTFA).
 
Our group is made up of parents and teachers who attend the meetings and volunteer their time and resources as and when they can.
 
We are well supported by the School Staff group and we are particularly grateful for the keen longstanding support and encouragement of Miss Pickering (Head Teacher) and Miss Grant (Deputy Headteacher).

The PTFA are all about encouraging community and fundraising for the good of the school.  If you are a parent, teacher or friend of the school then we encourage you to join our Facebook community group!

  What do we do?

The PTFA exists to provide a closer, less formal link between home and school. It is an excellent way to bring staff, parents and friends together; socially and in support of the school.
 
The membership of the committee changes from year to year but we seem always to have the same active and energetic spirit pervading the Association.
 
Two of the main aims of our efforts are; 1) to encourage a community of parents, teachers and friends for the common good of the school, and 2) fund raising activity. This additional revenue is always put to good use throughout the school. 

In short, your school and your children benefit as a result and everyone involved has a lot of fun and satisfaction along the way.

  We can't do it without YOU!

Parents and carers automatically become members of the PTFA when their child joins the school.
 
Help (is always) Required!! We need people to help on the PTFA committee, but more than one person per role can perform the roles.  Please see our AGM invite at the top of this page and attend for the best way to get involved now.  Or you can email the committee or info@stmarysptfa.org.uk

Volunteers Needed!

Teachers and members of the larger school community can become involved with the PTFA and any contribution of time (however small) is very much appreciated.

We also rely on our network of class reps that act as liaisons between parents & friends, class teachers, and the PTFA committee. The reps have a key role in assisting the PTFA in many activities, and by ensuring that all parents, friends and teachers are part of the community by spreading the word and being available to hear questions or concerns. 

If you use Facebook, please consider joining our
official St. Mary's Bicester Community Group where we encourage exchanges of ideas, answering questions, and discussions on any subject directly or indirectly related to St. Mary's.
