St Patrick's Catholic Primary Academy

Our PFA Committee


We have a lead team and many members to make up our full committee.  The committee meet on a regular basis usually once a month, outside school hours and everyone is always welcome.  Smaller working party groups meet as necessary to organise our bigger events.

Did you know?    

All parents are automatically members of the PFA when your child joins St. Patrick's Catholic Primary School. 
We encourage all parents, grandparents, parishioners and friends to actively get involved even if you can only offer a small amount of time. 
It is a great way to meet other parents and to support your child’s school. 
We welcome fresh ideas & additional support however small, to support this fabulous school.  
We have little jobs that can be done from home if you have half an hour to spare e.g. wrapping gifts...we really couldn’t achieve
what we do without the unseen ’army of help’ that exists and is invaluable.


Why do we have a PFA?

We are much more than just fundraising, we aim to give the children a good time.  
We exist to provide closer links between home and school and bring  everyone together to work towards a common goal. 
As in any organisation, there are times when it is “challenging”, or “we don’t have enough time” but with the continued support our
children will benefit from the PFA succeeding.


Drop us an email or stop one of us at school and share your thoughts.
