The school has a strong PTA and all parents and staff are automatically members.
The objective of the PTA is to: advance the education of the pupils at the school by providing and assisting in the provision of facilities for education at the school not normally provided by the Local Authority.
The Association will:
- Foster more extended relationships between the staff, the parents and others associated with the school, and
- Engage in activities that support the school and advance the education of the pupils attending it.
Each year a Committee is elected and plan a series of events aimed at improving communication between school and home, discussing matters of mutual interest, fundraising and contributing to a shared vision for St Thomas More Catholic School.
Each year the PTA puts on a programme of events including a celebration of Black History, a Carol Service and a very popular Quiz Night.
This year, the PTA held a bake sale during the Year 9 Parents' Evening. The total money raised was £180 and we will be put towards the new school mini-bus fund.
The PTA was involved in discussions concerning the now completed Building Schools for the Future (BSF) project and gives its views on issues such as the school’s Behaviour Policy and Student Journal.
