Welcome to St Thomas’ PTA page. The PTA is open to parents, teachers and all those with links to the school. Our main aim is to raise funds which will go towards enhancing our children’s school experience. In recent years we have helped the school to buy software packages, digital cameras and visualisers, but this year we’ve taken on a much bigger project, with a plan to completely revamp the school playground.
It all started out with a simple plan for an outdoor classroom, but after consultation with parents and teachers it was agreed that the children would benefit tremendously from an outdoor area that stimulated and entertained them, whilst also assisting with their learning and development.
