Parents' AssociatioN

St Mary’s Catholic School has a thriving Parents Association (PA), which contributes significantly to the school. Whether it’s providing tools to aid children’s learning in the classroom or purchasing equipment for the playground, we are an important resource to the School.

The PA, led by Rachel Gosbee as Chairperson, is made up of a Committee of Parents in the below key roles. We are supported by other Parents and Friends of the PA, who attend our meetings and help run a busy events calendar for the year.


Chair – Rachel Gosbee

Treasurer - Sarah Rawlins

Secretary - Kate Duffy


All parents of the school are automatically members of the PA and welcome to join all our meetings throughout the year. They are as follows, usually 7.30pm in the evening at the school:


Please come along and share your ideas on School Events, funding for different projects and meet your fellow St Mary's Parents. It is an informal, open environment, with tea and biscuits. The Head Teacher is also present.


This year, our fundraising efforts will be for the new 3G Sport's Pitch in the Junior Playground. Children from Nursery to Y6 will be able to use this facility. We are aiming to raise £40,000 from the events that are taking place this year and we also have a donation page set up  on Virgin Money Giving for parents, staff, former pupils and local businesses to donate.
